The (Pro-Elite) stand, is awesome! I’ve never owned one before but it was honestly on my list of things to purchase this year, as my apartment currently houses a growing collection 5 bikes and doesn’t show signs of slowing. I’ve used several different brand stands at one point or another and they all have seemed a bit clumsy in some way. I got right to setting up and playing with my stand when I got home from the expo and was so pleased. It took about 30 seconds to get it in place, adjusted, and my bike mounted. And it shows no signs of that wobble/tipsy-ness that I’ve encountered in other stands.
It was wonderful meeting some of the the people behind Feedback Sports (at the Bike NY Expo). Having been both a participant and a demonstrator at many expos it’s refreshing to see people who really enjoy what they are doing and stand behind their products. Thank you guys a ton!

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.
Super proud of our co-worker, Eric Hockman! We stumbled upon this gem in @bikemag . A few of Eric's photos will be featured in Nick Legan's new book: "Gravel Cycling". Way to, @hockdub ! #makeyourescape #gravelcycling ...
