I got three of these, for a Klein, Fisher Hoo e koo, and a Rock lobster and none of them are stable so it is not just me - yes they stand the bike up but the slightest touch walking past will tip the bike - fine if you have a garage but if you live in a city apartment like me then id get something else as falling bikes have caused more damage than me leaning the bikes against the wall, CRC service all good but product , whilst made well is not suited to all environments. Shame

Works well, bike stays up no problem. Fitting is a breeze (slide it on, rotate the cranks, done) but I was somewhat worried on my first attempt as my hybrids cranks are fairly low to the ground and this seemed at first look to be too tall. Luckly the black plastic part on the top can be removed and the part which connects the legs can extend downwards so you should be able to adjust this to fit almost any bike. Saves the walls in my apartment and has taken many a bump from my hyper dog and still keeps the bike up so recommended.

Well, it works. The bike stands quite firmly. However it is too much bother to install, removing the front wheel is as easy. Also unlike the stands that hold the wheel this one obviously doesn't allow rotating pedals to lubricate the chain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Exellent item
I bought this item last year about 6 months ago, so it has been used in various situations, places, rain & shine. It is well worth the price, it does what it says no need for the silly old fashioned bike stand which you have to screw onto your fame. This product slides on and holds the bike with no problem, I would recommend this stand to anyone. Stand is small enough to store away when needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous great product
I purchased this stand to support our tandem, and it does this very well. I increased the stability by looping a strap through the front wheel and down tube to stop the forks from turning.
