I should have bought a Sprint Stand a long time ago, it makes working on the bike so much easier. Before, I used 2 patio chairs to prop my bike up to wash it and removing the rear wheel was a pain due to the rear derailleur being at risk of damage. Now, with the stand, I remove both wheels in a matter of seconds, place my chain keeper in the rear drop, and can clean every nook and cranny of my bike, as well as easily make shifting adjustments or other maintenance tasks.
Just got off the phone with Feedback Sports. I was seeking technical and personal experience information concerning your bike stands. Your sales manager answered my questions confidently, explained the inner workings of the clamp rotation mechanism, etc. Through his courtesy and knowledge imparted over the phone I will be purchasing the Pro-elite repair stand.
Unless you’re one of the scant few paid to pedal a bike, you may view your job as a series of obstacles to your riding: the hours spent chained to a desk (or on your feet), the lack of safe bike parking, the spandex-phobic colleagues.
But what if you didn’t have to put your bike life on hold during business hours?
