Home Mechanic Repair Stand - PCS-10 $175.00
Item # PAR0020
Because settling your bike on your repair stand shouldn't be long, drawn-out affair.
Let's face it, working on your bike is no fun if you're bent at the knees fumbling with it as it rolls along the workbench at home. Why not make life easy, stand erect like nature intended, and get that cable replaced like a seasoned Pro mechanic? The Park Tool PCS-10 Home Mechanic Repair Stand is exactly what you need to secure your bike at a proper working height so your maintenance will be that much easier and quicker.
The PCS-10 Repair Stand has a cam-actuated clamp that has adjustable jaws that can safely accommodate frame tubes from 7/8" to 3". They open along the plane of the bike, so they work great for deep, aero-shaped frame tubes. The clamp head can be rotated to work on your bike at any angle. And to accommodate different sized bikes and different sized mechanics, the Home Mechanic Repair Stand is height adjustable from 39" to 57" at the clamp.
Park's PCS-10 Home Mechanic Repair Stand is stable on any surface with its three-point leg system. And it folds into a tidy 41" package for easy storage when not in use.

I have the PCS-10 for over 2 years and I have used for repair, bike wash, clean and regular maintenance. It is well build, looks good, hold the bike well if you tighten the clamp after closing the quick release. My only complain is that the button or what you call the silver ball which hold the stand is difficult to press and fold the stand. I can fold the 2 legs easily but to lower the stand is a little challenging for me. Overall, highly recommend this stand and make sure to get the tray too.
This is the second one I bought, not because my old one broke or anything, it is still just as good as when I bought after 100s of hours of being used, I just bought this one so that my roommates and I can work on more than one bike at a time. Ridiculous, you say?, Well when its three guys and 15 bikes I say one stand is not enough! Oh and I forgot to and that it folds to like nothing! I bring this everywhere my bikes goes ahahaha
Okay ... full disclosure to begin. I didn't buy mine here - I got it as a gift. That said, somebody needs to review this thing and I might as well be the first.
This is an awesome bike stand. It is pretty lightweight - certainly enough so to pack up in your car if you're ever taking a bike trip. It's super easy to stand up to use/fold up to store. Despite being lightweight it is incredibly strong. I can use it for mountain bikes, heavy kids bikes, and my road/cx bikes - all just as well. Just a very, very solid stand for anyone who does their own maintenance at home.
Stoutly built and easy to handle the bike in and out of. Was quick and simple to put together as well and came with the necessary tools to do so (should you not have that stuff lying around). The long base legs can kind of get in the way depending on what you're doing but it's definitely not a deal breaker.
The picture doesn't do this monster justice. This thing is BEEFY and holds up my ridiculously overweight MTN bike like its a feather. The crowning jewel on this sweet repair stand is the no BS clamp that has a nifty quick release mechanism and near infinite adjustability. Just make sure you put some muscle into it when securing the height setup and clamp rotation, or else you may find your bike tilting away from you while you crank down on that pedal wrench. Don't be fooled by the triangular stance. It is completely stable and the stand itself is heavy enough to prevent it from being knocked over by clumsy family members and roommates bumbling around your work space. Don't bother with its supposedly "fold up for storage" feature since the legs require a wrench or socket for mounting and removal. If you're tired of crawling around on your knees and hunching over while working on your bike, this repair stand will make you proud to splurge a bit of hard earned cash on quality hardware.
This is the first and only bike stand I'll probably ever have. It does exactly what it's supposed to, and nothing else. It was relatively easy to setup, but absolutely easy to use. Lift your bike with one hand, clamp the seatpost with the other, and you're done. It extends high enough to bring my crankset near eye-level, and has never felt unstable in the least. Easily adjustable and totally functional. Get one and become your own mechanic.
Overall a great stand. This is the first work stand I've ever owned and it does a hell of a job. It's got a ton of adjustment, and once you figure out the technique isn't hard to set up or stow away. I like the big honker clamp's adjustability for grabbing different size tubes for different bikes and different work. My only real complaint with it is the finger-chomper push releases on the legs. You have to push real hard to get them to disengage and they inevitably pinch the ends of your fingers when you operate them.
It holds the bike very solidly when deployed and occupies relatively little space when collapsed. Assembly isn't too bad provided you RTFM.
Can you clamp a bike on this thing and then turn it so the bike is hanging vertically? I need to find some way to hold my bike in a vertical position *without* screwing a hook in my (useless, studless, old and tired) walls.
Actually, you can get the bike to hang vertically on it. The clamp is BIG and has a lot of adjustment, along with tension crank that lets you set it at a particular angle. It's not hard to set it up to clamp a tube other than the seat post and hold the bike vertical. The tricky part is balance. You've either gotta have the pivot near the center of gravity of the bike or tighten the crap out of the clamp rotator. I generally alter the tilt of the bike several times while I'm working and the stand does fine. I don't know that I'd trust it vertical for long term storage but for short term messing around (back wheel removal anyone?) you can totally mess around with orientation.
OK guys, I've put the whole thing together, but how do I get the bottom legs to lock? Obviously, if the bottom legs don't somehow lock in the down position then the whole thing collapses & looks VERY unprofessional! I followed steps 19 & 21 accordingly, but there must be something wrong.
Answered my own question:1. Never try working on a problem when you have low blood sugar.2. Remember the thing folds up and therefor re CAN BE TURNED OVER!3. problem solved!4. Nice; it holds a very clunky '80s folder very nicely!
Fantastic bike stand. Easy to adjust, even loaded with the bike. Plus the seat post clamp works way easier than my buddy's cheaper stand. Easy to set up and then put away. I got mine on sale and have been thrilled thus far.
Easy to set up, nice and strong, nice and heavy. I thought I would be getting something of a lesser quality as it referred to it as a "home mechanic" stand. It's perfect. I can hang the 38 pound sled on there and wrench away. Paint has come off from tightening where the clamp attaches to the bike. Does not look like any stress on the metal, just the beautiful Park Blue. Im confident that if there were a problem, Backcountry or Park Tool would take care of the situation. I saw the PCS-9 and it looked a lot flimsier especially with the clamp for the bike. Would give er' 5 starts but Im going to wait and see if anything more comes of the paint stress areas.
Upon assembly and the first time use, I discovered while trying to tighten the cam lever screw(so I could clamp my bike frame), the clamp screw (P/N 1810) was binding inside the hex barrel rotating jaw (P/N 1803).
I determined the problem was related to a bad threading job by the Chinese subcontractor who made the stand.
I went to my local Ace hardware store and purchased a 3/8 x 16 tap and die so the threads could be fully cut into the hex barrel and chased the threads on the screw......easy job with a $12.00 expenditure.
This solved the QC issue and my new work stand was ready to go.....it works really well and makes working/adjusting the bike a breeze.
I opted to fix the problem myself rather than hassle with sending back the stand or parts.
This stand works great! The hardware is of good quality and the parts are heavy duty enough that this thing will last a long time. There is actually nothing that I would change about this stand. Backcountry.com had the best price that I could find anywhere too!
