This is a fine piece of equipment. Reviewers who couldn’t stop their bikes from drooping simply mounted their bikes backwards. Do it the right way, drive train out, and it will hold steady in any position. The mechanism is simple but efficient. The clamp is a breeze to adjust and the clutch holds steady as a rock. You can work at elbow level on every part of a bike.
Getting caught in the rain doing my 3,000th mile of 2014 was no cause for concern, knowing that wiping the bike down would be effortless with my new stand.
