Not So Eurotrash.
Let's face it, we are all a little older and wiser since our first days of flipping over a bicycle to play mechanic. Bikes—and their components—are also much more expensive and precise. It's time to step-up your work space game with the Park PRS-22 Team Issue Repair Stand and channel your inner Euro-Pro mechanic, sans lip-dangling cigarette, as you clean and preform general repair work on your prized possessions. Park Tools is the household name for high-end wrenching, and the PRS-22 continues its legacy of offering quality products.
Originally designed for professional mechanics, the 12.5lb aluminum and composite PRS-22 firmly holds any bike without clamping the frame or seat post. This is great for preventing damage to thin-walled tubes and seatposts or finding a place to clamp on a bike with today's complex tube shapes. The stand supports the bottom bracket shell via an adjustable support and either the front or rear dropouts. A double quick-release collar adjusts the bottom bracket height from 30 to 45in, and the stand features 360-degree horizontal rotation to always ensure a good working angle on your steed. The retaining strap that holds the stand together when it's packed up can be used to strap the downtube to the stand for extra security.
You can mount any style axle system dropout to the stand so quick-releases and thru-axles found on road disc, CX, gravel, and mountain (even fatbikes) are all covered without adaptors. The 60lb max weight is the stand's only limiting factor. The PRS-22 features a solid tripod base with a main beam that's adjustable fore and aft and folds compactly for storage or transportation. When you're preparing at a race, the stand goes from fully collapsed to fully set-up in under five minutes. Park recommends its BAG-20, sold separately, for easy transportation.
