The Review
This is a tool that works well for those who do not have the storage space and the space to deploy a huge workstand, and for those who are unwilling to spend hundreds of dollars to buy a large workstand.

Generally it does its job well; the position where it suspends the rear wheel makes it easy to remove the rear wheel, which is a common headache while servicing our bikes at home. It keeps the derailers off the ground and is in a stable position.

One disadvantage in this stand is the folding legs; it cannot be "locked", and relies on the position it is rested on to be stable. A locking mechanism can be incorporated into the legs to make it stable.

Overall, a nifty little flash stand that is portable, and serves its purpose pretty well.
