Why We Like The Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand
While working on carbon bikes, it's a bad idea to finagle them into a traditional work stand. Integrated seatmast? Good luck. Aero seatpost? Keep trying. And while the jury is still out on even clamping carbon fiber, you're better off securing your bike how every pro-team mechanic in the world does -- by the dropout and bottom bracket. Cleaning your drivetrain, installing new parts, and adjusting derailleurs can all be done quickly and safely with the Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand. Known to some as a 'Euro-stand', this style of work stand avoids contact with your seat post, so you never need to worry about clamping your carbon post to hard or finding a way to work around your aero mast. A great option for home repairs and race support, the Sprint Work Stand is made from lightweight, Red-anodized aluminum that won't rust after a rainy spring or fall on the service course. The bike is held by the bottom bracket and a single-point quick release mount that holds all sizes of front and rear dropouts and axle diameters up to 15mm. The stand has an adjustable work height of 30 to 48in, and it also has 360 degrees of rotation. A major perk is that the adjustable fork and bottom bracket positions guarantee that you aren't fighting the stand to get into the nooks and crannies of the bike. The tripod base provides stability on varied surfaces like dirt, gravel, or sloping pavement. The stand can hold up to 85 lbs and folds down to a 5 x 7.5 x 30in size. The Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand comes in anodized Red only. Note: To use this stand with 20mm axles an adaptor is required. This part is sold separately.

Excellent stand for shop or portable
- I've put it through the wringer
10/10. Sturdy, super easy to put away, light, clamp is micro-adjustable. Lightweight but very solid design overall. Quick & easy fold-up, to take on road trips.

"Sprint" Platform Repair Stand
- I've used it several times
The Sprint (and tool shelf) is much better conceived than the "platform" (or Euro-Type) repair stand that I had from Park Tool. The Feedback Sports stand reflects a great deal of understanding of the intrinsic challenges that such a device requires. Unlike the one-fits-all fork drop-outs that Park provides, the Sprint comes with a wide range of inserts to accommodate thru-axles (of varying cross sections and length) and varying quick-releases. The support for the bottom bracket is adjustable back and forth to take into account both center-of-gravity and wheel base, as are the fork dropouts. These features make balancing a wide spectrum of bikes well-suited to this stand. As more riders are buying carbon fiber frames, the clamping necessary to support such a bike becomes increasingly problematic: too little pressure and the bike moves too much; too much pressure and you're looking at an expensive repair-in the best case. Silca sells a Hirondelle bar for $185 (https://silca.cc/products/hirobel-clamp) that will keep your top tube safe, but the bar is multi-faceted and held in place only by rubber straps, which permits the bar to twist, and the bike along with it. The cost of the Hirondelle bar only will finance more than half the cost of the far more useful Sprint stand. There is also an available tool shelf that can be very convenient.

What do the pro mechanics use?
- I've put it through the wringer
Pro mechanics use tri mounted stands. The versatility is perfect. From a quick clean to a drivetrain overhaul, this stand is adjustable to accommodate any project or repair. Adust the height and work on your bike at eye level. And spin it around with ease. After the first use, I immediately realized I have been wasting my money on clamp style stands. I use it with both my carbon road and carbon mountain bike. Some complaints are strange. If you find it too difficult to remove the front wheel in order to use the stand then you probably don't need any stand. Over time a serious recreational cyclist (or racer) learns there are a few "must-haves'. And this is one of them.
