I have traveled around the world to race and there are some places that are NOT conducive to cycling outside leading up to the event. Not only that, but sometimes the weather can be awful (down pouring rain, really really cold, etc.) prior to the race, and you just don’t want to risk riding outdoors. I can think of so many races over the past couple of years where having this would have been SO so helpful. It’s a carry-on; lightweight and easy to bring with me, so I don’t have to worry about mapping out a ride route in an unfamiliar city now. The Omnium will keep me safe and remove much of the travel hassle I experienced over the past couple of seasons. No assembly required–just set it up and hop on for a spin. And in case anyone is wondering, you can do a complete workout on it as it can definitely handle the watts.

I really feel fortunate to get to use the diversity of the Feedback work-stands every day. I prefer the Sprint stand for washing the bikes after a race, as we usually remove wheels from the bikes each day for wash in order to make the best selection for the coming day/stage (wheel rim depth, cassette range, etc.]. The Sprint allows me to stand in one place and rotate the bike around to wash from all angles. Once clean, I like the Pro-Elite stand for the tuning/lubing of the bikes, as the quick release clamp is easy and efficient to work with one free hand, and the seat-post clamp permits me full access to the wheels/brakes/cables for tuning and lubing. Light weight, rust-free aluminum just makes for easier packing/unpacking each day, and I am constantly amazed at the daily use/abuse that these stands take and still perform flawlessly. My first choice for working on bikes.
