Stand was sturdier than I originally thought. I prefer the three-legged tripod stand better than the two-legged Park Tool design. I've worked with both Park Tool and Feedback and I have a Feedback at home now. I was a little concerned about some of the plastic parts, but after receiving the stand, it has metal in all the places needed. I prefer the knob-adjusted rotation of of the clamp arm and the screw-in clamp at the end of the arm that holds the frame. I don't need to be concerned with the clamp arm marring my aluminum-framed road bike, but it also has the strength to hold a steel-framed downhill mountain bike firmly. Shipping was super quick as well. Ordered it on Saturday and it was on my doorstep on Wednesday!
