The Review
Although the weakness seems pretty annoying but I doesn't bother me at all. Height is most of the time fixed and by tightening and checking the bolts regularly will prevent these problems. $180 for a pretty decent Park Tool workstand is worth the money, no regrets.

Strengths
Stability, my bike weighs at least 14kg and this stand is holding it firm. With a workshop stand around, maintenance work has never been easier. The screw clamp is firm and have good grip on the seatpost. The powder coated poles are shiny and nice.

Weaknesses
A bit flexy but I guess it is inevitable because my bike is pretty heavy. The vertical poles are clamped together by a bolts, which does not allow quick adjustments. The legs are also fasten together by a allen bolt and can come loose if not tighten properly.
