Feedback Sports Pro-Elite Bicycle Repair Stand Review

Pro Reviews Video

Bottom Line
It’s not the cheapest stand on the market, but its durability, portability, functionality, features and usability make it well worth the cost. I can vouch for the longevity of the companies stands since mine is close to 15 years old and is in fine shape. The Secure-Lock clamp system is one of the best systems on the market, and is simply a joy to use. The foldable system makes it easy to break down and put up the stand, and the tripod design had great stability on uneven ground. There is just a hint of flex from the upright tubes and more so when the upper tube is extended, but it’s not much to complain about in a near perfect product.

The Tote Bag is a great item if you travel, while the Tool Tray is just plain handy for holding all the typical items you use for bike repairs. If you like to true your own wheels or even like to check if the disc rotor is true, then the optional Truing Station is a nice item, and it installs on top of the stand for more usability. I also liked the optional Flop Stop handlebar holder to secure the front steering during repairs.

Strengths
-Secure Lock clamp head with quick release button

-Stability
-Longevity
