Bike Repair StandsYou’ve been training hard for that road race next week. You’re in shape and feeling fit. Now it’s time to get your trusty bike in shape too. You need to check over your bike meticulously, you need to adjust all your bike’s components so everything is running just right. What do you need? A Professional Park Tool Bike Repair Stand, that’s what.

Park Tool, based in St Paul Minnesota, has been manufacturing professional, high quality tools for cyclists since 1963. Today, Park Tool is the world’s largest bicycle tool manufacturer and makes a range of high quality, professional bike repair stands.

The Park Tool Professional Race Stand

Park Tool’s Professional Race Stand has been designed with the professional cyclist in mind. This lightweight, portable, and fully adjustable folding bike repair stand is made by Park Tool from high quality materials and is manufactured to last. This bike repair stand can be used with any bike.

The repair stand weighs just 22 pounds. The upright tube is an oversized elliptical-shaped tube that has been heat treated to give it added strength and to also resist any flexing. The aluminum base and steel legs incorporates an adjustable five point system that provides a sturdy, stable base even when you’re using it on an uneven surface. You can adjust the clamping height from 40 inches (102cm) to 60 inches (152cm) to make working on your bike far more comfortable.

To keep your bike securely in place, the bike stand uses high quality 100-15X Extreme Range clamps that you can adjust to fit bike frames from 7/8 inch (24mm) to 3 inch (76mm). The fully adjustable clamps prevent damage to your bike’s frame. The narrow jaws of the clamps can also be attached to the most fiddly parts of your bike and with 160 degrees rotation in any direction, you’ll have unfettered access to any part of your bike.


You can also get a variety of accessories that will turn your professional Park Tool bicycle repair stand into a complete mobile workstation. These accessories include truing stand attachments, bucket tool stands, carry bags and even a paper towel holder to keep your hands clean when your making those all important adjustments.

The lightweight, compact truing stand attachment for example, allows accurate truing of your bike’s wheels up to 29 inches. You can also use the attachment to center your wheels simply by flipping the wheel.

Keep your hands clean whenever you’re working on your bike by attaching the paper towel holder which holds most standard paper rolls in a handy location close to where you are working. It’s also great for hanging clothing, wheels or anything else you need to keep close by when you’re working on your bike.

And then once you’ve got your bike all tuned up and ready for racing, you can fold up your bicycle repair stand and pack it away until the next time you need to work on your bike in the fitted, heavyweight nylon carry bag with the handy shoulder strap for easy carrying.
