StarStarStarStarStar Home Bike Repair Made Easy

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

The Park PCS-10 is a very high quality bicycle repair stand that makes a novice mechanic look and feel like a pro. It's fully articulating arm with easily adjustable grip will allow full access to any component of your bike.

It's an easy job to clean, do preventive maintenance or any major or complex repair with this stand. It folds into a very small foot print for storage anywhere from a small closet to a corner in the garage. Very sturdy and very well made product for the money. Definitely a 5 STAR product and a must have for any biking enthusiast.

Cons

Should have bought this one years ago!!!!

The stand works great. The only drawback was that it arrived damaged, but customer support did an excellent job of getting me a replacement part from Park Tool very quickly.

StarStarStarStarStar Park Tool PCS 10 Maintenance Stand

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Easy to put together. Nice rack to work with. I've only used it once since I put it together, but it makes working on my bike a breeze. You can adjust the rack to your comfort level and adjust it to your height for the job you're accomplishing. I cleaned both my bikes and lubed them with minimal efforts. You can adjust this stand in many positions just by loosing the swivel clamp and positioning it for the job your doing. Good luck

Cons

I thought it would collapse more than it does. You have to slide the top half of the tubing out and the legs fold up, but it is heavy and sizable to put in the back of my Honda Pilot with everything else I take along on my bike trips. If I do my prep work before I go places it won't be an issue. I just thought it would be nice to have it along on trips in case I had to do any major maintenance.

Other Thoughts

The stand is very nice for the money and I'm glad I have it.

StarStarStarStarStar Well Built

by
Ownership: one week
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Really well built and heavy. It seems like genuine quality. Excellent customer service. The clamp is very fast and stable to latch up. I have not used it enough to know if the legs cause any issues under more circumstances, but it is a great seeming product.

Cons

The box came missing the height adjustment clamp but had two of the wrench/bolt bags in it. Clearly just a packaging mistake at the factory. Emailed Park Tool when I assembled it and had a response in 30 minutes and they mailed the part right away no questions asked.

Other Thoughts

This was my first purchase with ModernBike and their customer service was also awesome. Great price and super fast shipping.

Pros

Excellent qualtiy and functionality.

Cons

Heavy and bulky. Great if you leave it in one place, not so good if you store it and take out for occasional use. Recommend small Park stand for occasional use.

The PCS 10 model is worth the extra $ over the PCS-9 for the upgraded mounting clamp

StarStarStarStarStar Bulletproof repair stand...

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Sturdy, portable, convenient clamp

Cons

Plastic construction at the clamp handle and head to tube connection

Other Thoughts

This is one of the sturdiest non-professional repair stands. The combination cam/screw clamp is super convenient. The screw handle is plastic, so be careful not to go crazy tightening it down.

StarStarStarStarStar recreational bike rider

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat low

Pros

easy to adjust height
easy to mount bike on
folds and stores out of way
can use it to hold my weed eater during maintenance

Cons

pushing lock buttons in is hard with arthritic hands

Other Thoughts

This is a great product for working on my bikes. I also store my road bike on it when not in use. I'm giving it 4 stars as folding it is a little hard for me as I have arthritis in my hands but it is not a big problem and stores easily against the wall when not needed and will fit in my car's trunk. The optional tool tray and towel rack that I also bought keep all my tools and cleaning supplies within reach. I also discovered that this is a great device for holding my weed eater and other yard tools during maintenance.

Pros

This thing is a tank

Cons

This thing is a tank

Other Thoughts

A great stand for anyone that doesn't have to move it more than a few feet.
It has great adjustability and works great, but is anything but portable. To move it around I have to heave it up on my shoulder just to move it.
Being quite heavy is not a bad thing for an repair stand as it is very stable and you dont have to worry about your bike moving arround when mounted on this repair stand.
I love it and it works great for me as it pretty much stays in my workshop. Have had other workstands and they were not nearly as stable.
In short: Great for the shop; not so much for travel.

StarStarStarStarStar Excellent stand!

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Easy set-up, take down and storage. Ideal for all bike maintenance procedures. After a bike wash outside using a PVC stand, I use the PCS-10 inside for relubrication of the drivetrain, inspection of brake pads and minor adjustments of calipers and derailleurs. The optional clip-on parts tray is very handy for keeping tools and oil close to the work.

Cons

Nothing to criticise.

None. Great stand!
