The Review
Gets the work done, but for the price I wished it was made even better and sturdier.

Strengths
Solid feeling steel based tubing gives you assurance that the stand wouldn't start to crumple and fold over itself, quite strong. Nice Park Tool blue colour though.

Weaknesses
The bend for the legs do give some flex when test cranking the bike. Stand doesn't have fantastic planted-on-the-ground feeling, wobbles when cranking hard. The quick release height adjustment doesn't feel particularly secure, though I have yet to notice any slip. The two legs kind of block my access sometimes, makes it somewhat troublesome to lay down newspapers to catch the spillovers of oil/degreaser etc. The lock to hold the bike at a desired angle is only working via a friction catch, wonder if replacment heads are available.
