Feedback Sports started as an offshoot of Universal Support Systems, the company known the world over for its speaker stands big speakers, concert sized. So it should probably come as no surprise that the three legged design of the Pro Elite Bicycle Repair Stand is rock solid. What was a surprise, though, is just how useful, strong, and simple the clamping mechanism is. Throw the seatpost in between the jaws of the clamp, push it in, and give the wheel a few turns to tighten it down completely. When you're done, back it off a hair to relieve tension on the threads, slap the spring loaded quick release, and voila! After years in bike shops using the old style clamps, this was a surprising revelation. The Pro Elite Stand folds up small, so you can take it to a race, keep it in a closet, and generally not mess with it until you need it. This one even comes with a tote bag to make transporting it easier.
