Rated 5 out of 5 by Zippy A great work stand
Had this stand for a couple of weeks and have just completed a complete rebuild of my winter bike which needed a new bottom bracket , chain etc...........
This stand just made the whole thing so much easier, the fact that you can get the bike at a comfortable height and then just spin it round to work on the other side saved a lot of time. Setting the drive chain back up was a breeze.
The stand is very stable with nice feet that sit flat on the ground unlike some other stands which just have bungs. The axle clamp design allows it to be used on carbon frames (my summer bike has carbon frame with a BB30 bottom bracket and it fits perfectly) It also good for general cleaning just wipe the stand down afterwards and give vertical tubes a squirt of GT7 or WD40 to make sure they still slide nicely.
To sum up: I have never been a big fan of working on bikes, but this makes it a shorter, more enjoyable, and more successful exercise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mariusz47 good value for mony
Plastic cleat doesn't looks great but to be honest they perform well. That work stand is exactly what i need.
1# saves your back
2)make a cleaning much easier
3)very easy in use
5# much better than ordinary work stand #can go round)
6) very useful attached tray #'park tool' havn't got it but is more expensive)
One thing which I regret the most is i bought that product far too late.

Good value for money product. Only complaint is the assembly instruction manual is too brief and I need to dismantle part of the item to figure out the installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcs Exceeds expectations
I was impressed as soon as i opened the package and saw the components. Within minutes I had the stand set up, and put it to use straight away. I was still impressed after using it for a couple of hours. Giving this product full 5 stars because that is what it deserves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous What a way to change the work you do...
I bought this stand when I intended to swap out a load of gear on my bike. I had never really used a pro stand before and am over the moon with how easy it made everything. To be able to sit with the bike at a height where you can get in and do everything with out awkward angles or leaning or knocking things over. Fantastic, solid unit which looks like it is going to last for years. Great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very nice stand
Received this the other day, many thanks for the prompt shipping!
Put the stand straight to work and have been very pleased with the stability and functionality of this piece of equipment, perhaps not as sturdy as the old Var pro work stand I had in the 80's, then again the Var was super expensive and really industrial and weighed a tonne..
This Tacx folds up nicely, I can break in down into to pieces easily for even easier storage or chuck it in the boot of the car.
True, the tool platform is pretty small, but handy to put allen keys and bike hardware, you won't be putting a chain whip or any large spanners on it...
All in all, it's stable, light, easy to clean and functional, full marks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Tacx T3050 Review
My first workstand of which I took delivery today, I thoroughly inspected all components before assembly and I can’t see much to complain about here. Stand is height adjustable, swivels 360 degrees and comes with a tool tray now (as depicted), far more flexible IMHO than the fixed stands. On initial experience giving it 5 stars as I can’t see a reason not to, it’s also keeping the stones I used to kneel on out of my knee caps!
Good ordering service from CRC too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great item used it for two years now as a bike mechanic
I service a fleet of 20 Marins and private racing, MTB's and BMX. This stand is great item put your tolls one side on the bench and just swivel the unit around. Height adjustment and balance is good. The only fault i had was the lack of space to put tools being used ie, tool station. This is far superior to the Park Tool frame clamp type stand.
