Feedback Pro Ultralight Repair Stand Review
First a little about Feedback. What a great name to start! Feedback are based in Colorado and begun in 2004. The Feedback Pro Ultralight repair stand is more of a stand for the home or shop. More of a classic design than other stands we have looked at.
The Pro Ultralight was designed for races and pro mechanics who needed a stand that was easy to carry, compact and easy to use when needed in emergencies.
Heavy or Lightweight
The answer is lightweight. Thats what is in the name and it really is lightweight. Not only that but the lightweight design makes it easier for you to carry your stand around and also store the workstand.
Don’t be put off by the lightweight of this bike repair stand. It is made from anodised red aluminium and uses a slide lock design to securely hold your bike in place while you carry out vital maintenance.
Feedback have gone with the tripos design here. The reason this design is that when your on uneven surfaces it still works well. So if your are caught out mid ride and have your workstand with you, as you do, then no need to worry about finding and even surface.
Clamping your bike to the stand is done by the slide lock clamp. The reason we like this clamp is its has unique torque-amplifying clutch holds the bike securely without the risk of crimping the frame tubing. Clamps are also quick release for convenience.
The wide clamp opening fits a range of bikes and the 360º rotating clamp and height adjustment means your bike is always within easy reach.
This allows you to manoeuvre the bike into the ideal position to carry out repairs. The height of the stand can also be adjusted for ease of use.
Who Is This Workstand For
Ideal for any cyclist. Why do we say that? This is due to the size and weight its ideal for those who like to clean and repair their bikes at home. Nothing worse than a bike stand that takes up all the room.
The rotating clamp is ideal if you have trouble getting to the hard to reach areas of your bike.
Ideal also if you travel a lot with your bike. Repairs on the road or cleaning need to be done. This stand would easily fit in your car so wouldn’t be too much trouble to take with you.
If your a beginner cyclist and have read that workstands are useful then you have read correct. More than useful actually. With so many workstands out there it can be hard to chose which one.
Holding a range of bikes, from race ready road bikes to full suspension mountain bikes, the stand can hold up to 38.6 kilograms of weight. However although the clamp should fit aerodynamic seatposts, you might not find the working angle ideal so may need to consider a different bike workstand.
The Feedback Pro Ultralight repair stand is a great stand to buy as your first bike workstand. Ultralight not just in name but it really is a lightweight workstand.
This stand comes with a great price and is easy to assemble and store away and if needed to take along with you on your rides. If your looking to buy the best bike workstand to carry out your bike repairs but dont want to take up all the space in the shed with your workstand then the Feedback Pro Ultralight repair stand is a stand that you would seriously want to consider.
The Feedback Pro Ultralight repair stand is a great stand to buy as your first bike workstand
