I ordered this not only for holding the bike up in the garage but also as a possible repair stand to wash my mountain bike and do some minor repairs. I didn't want to expend the money for a full blown repair stand at this time and I think it will work for my needs.
I had some trouble getting it to open up because the botton "release" is a bit difficult to use. I think the manufacturer could do a better job with this part of the stand, thus my reason for only 4 stars. Finally was able to yank it open hard and it worked very well.
