Looking at the Scorpion MTB Stand, we get that “why didn’t we think of that” lightbulb moment. That’s because this is a no-nonsense, make-total-sense type of mountain bike stand that will make all your home repairs a cinch without taking up the space and cash of a traditional stand.

Anyone familiar with motocross may recognize the inspiration behind the Scorpion. The inventor is a former motocross rider who segued into mountain biking and wanted the same sort of stand to work on his bikes. Pays to be a tinkerer, because he was able to throw together what he wanted in his California workshop. The best designs are always the simplest. The Scorpion stand is compatible with nearly all hollow mountain bike cranks. You simply stick the stand arm into the hollow spindle of your crank, and it will support your bike. Once the bike is mounted, the rear tire will sit off the ground and spin freely. So any gear shifting or other maintenance work will be easy to do.

At just four pounds, it is lightweight enough to take with you to the races, and compact enough to be used to store your bikes in the basement or garage. It will work with 26”, 27.5”, and 29” wheels. Each stand comes with adaptor to fit the various sizes of hollow cranks, which means that it is compatible with Shimano, SRAM, Rotor/FSA, Specialized, Truvativ, and Cannondale, either when you use the adaptor sleeves, or take the plastic sleeve off altogether. And if you have been converted to a dropper post, the Scorpion MTB Stand will make working on your rig so much easier, since it will not need to clamp onto the seatpost like a traditional stand.

  • Works with 26, 27.5, 29-inch wheels
  • Comes with crank adaptor for use with hollow crank spindles

Worth It

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

No more leaning the bike against...well, whatever you can find. I use this on the back patio for washing and light mx. Going w 4 stars because the fit is very tight on the crank of my 2015 Cannondale Trigger Carbon 29. Can't use any of the stand adapters on my factory stock SRAM, so it's just the crank right on the paint of the stand. It does work, but not ideal.

What, if any, is the difference between the Road and MTB Scorion stands?

They are different heights. The road stand sits lower.

I really wanted to like it...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Unfortunately I have Raceface Turbine Cinch cranks and this requires the smallest adapter, which doesn't allow the pin that secures the adapter to be used. My bike felt unstable, I definitely couldn't do work on it. Disappointed because I was really excited for a small stand to use in my apartment. I think this is a good design, just probably performs better with larger diameter adapters.

Did you find another thru crank stand that is compatible with the Turbine Cinch?

I also just installed a RaceFace Next SL G4 Crankset and found the default plastic adapter too large.. after removing that the bike was a bit unsteady as the horizontal part slopes down a bit. A quick fix for this was putting it in a vice and slowly bending the horizontal section upwards just a bit and now the bike is steady as ever. Great stand would buy again.

Too bad I got a defective one

    The pro version bike stand works nicely. I ordered a second non pro MTB stand. Unfortunately, I'm returning it because the one I received is not bent properly which makes the bike lean to the right.

    Adler, if we didn't get that replaced for you already, let me know and I'll ship it out asap.

    What happens when you take your front wheel off?does the bike just rock back onto the rear wheel?

    Simple and Convenient

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Own two of these stands. Find them to be a must for each bike in my stable. Easy, simple, portable. Great for taking to races or any where to safely stand your bike

    Great Bike Stand

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You can use this stand anywhere. You dont have to worry about leaning your bike up against anything with this stand. You can use it to display your awesome bike. I have used it for some light cleaning. very high quality. I have 3 of them and need more.

    well done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Excellent idea, excellent product execution. Works perfectly as-is with my MTB's SRAM XX1 crank. Very sturdy, rigid, stable. Glad they designed it as one-piece. High-quality powder, hardware, and even the welds.

    Great Idea, for the correct cranks

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I do love the concept here, it's stability and simplicity. 4 stars for cranks with a larger hole, such as Shimano. For the smaller Race Face cranks (I have Turbine Cinch), it works so-so and would do 3 stars. First you have to use the slim plastic sleeve adapter. Note that Backcountry did not send the 2 extra adapters that Scorpion provides...Backcountry said that no extra adapters are included, but Scorpion confirmed that two different sized plastic adapters are supposed to ship with the stand. Scorpion did send me these, props to them. With the slim adapter on, there was no way to secure it with the cotter pin since everything must be under 0.5" in diameter to slip into the Race Face crank. I used some shrink wrap to try and get this to stay, with marginal success. Once on, when turning the cranks, it has a tendency to walk off if you don't support the bike. Overall a bit mediocre with RF cranks, but I think it would work much better with Shimano cranks.

    I created an adapter that will fit on the scorpion stand for the Turbine Cinch. You can find it on Pinkbike.com, user name ungabungas. Or shoot me an email at hiltandesigns@gmail.com.

    Will this work with 2015 Race Face Turbine cranks?

    See Jaron's answer below, it may not work super secure with RaceFace Cinch cranks, and won't work with non-cinch cranks.


    how does this come shipped? I'm assuming it comes in at least 2 pieces to fit a flat box?


    This will come in one box. There is no join for the upper arm to disconnect from the base.

    Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

    If you have Race Face Next SL cranks....

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've noticed the interface doesn't work as well and the connection allows the bike to slip and move more than I like. For Shimano/SRAM/ any other cranks however, I would highly recommend.

    I created an adapter that will allow the Next SL cranks to mount properly on the Scorpion Stand. You can still turn the cranks with out the bike walking off. Shoot me an email at hiltandesigns@gmail.com if your interested.


      This is a pretty nice thing to have if you live in an apartment and all of your small bike maintenance tasks take place on your deck and/or in your kitchen. It comes with 3 different sized adaptors for the spindle, and I did have to initially swap out the standard one to fit my RaceFace cranks. I also had to bend the spindle back/up a little bit to get the pedals to clear the stand - and to keep the bike from sliding off the spindle - but it's stayed put since then. When combined with a chain cleaner tool (à la Park Tool's Chain Gang Chain Cleaner) cleaning chains is ALMOST enjoyable!

      Unfortunately none of the available colors match my bluegreen bike frame, but the yellow color is pretty good lookin'.

      Great stand

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      no more leaning my bikes against the wall in the garage. Every bike now has a Scorpion stand. They work perfect, look cool, and remind me of my old dirt bike stands.

      Great stand

      Great stand

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I really enjoy the Scorpion Bike Stand. For the cost of a little less than a pair of mountain bike sorts, this US-made storage stand delivers great functionality, and works great for the majority of maintenance tasks.

      Using the Scorpion Bike Stand is straightforward. All a user needs to do is simply lift your bike and slide the hollow crank spindle. Most mountain cranks use large-diameter hollow axles, making current SRAM and Shimano cranksets, as well as numerous models from FSA, Race Face and others compatible cranks with it?s plastic sleeve system.

      Great stand
