We bought one and it won't hold a girl's vintage bike up. It looks like the new ones are different than they were. Maybe we got a defective one, or they are junk now, not sure. ???? It might work fine on boys bikes, but it didn't with girls.

I'm still having good luck with mine - I have a Mead Ranger mounted on it and there is no problem

I found them to be usable but not desireable. Mine had a some problems holding heavy bikes in certain positions and I always felt like the plastic parts were ready to break.

My biggest complaint was the floor space taken up by the 4 legs......I was always stumbling against them as I moved around the bike.

Of course when you are used to using a Park.........

They would be good for someone just getting started or would make a good stand for painting a frame so you don't "mess up" your good one, and the price is definitely right. I also like the small parts/tool "rack" and the part that keeps the handle bars straight.

I would categorize them as the walmart Huffy of bike stands.

Theyre great,only thing I noticed is having to tighten the socket head cap screws once in a while. Best deal out there

mine is a couple years old and holds boys and girls without any issues.

I think the one we had was defective. It would not tighten enough to keep the whole arm that holds the frame, from rolling. The whole bike would nose dive.

The one I got for Christmas from our LBS is super strong and easy to use. I like being to rotate the bike if I needed to avoid bending over and hunching my back. Not sure I trust a stand from a grocery store.

Just bought mine this morning at Aldi's, they had three at $24.99. It is better quality than I expected for the money and suits my needs. Currently have a 64 Traveler mounted up. Thanks for the heads up guys - I doubt I would ever ventured into Aldi's otherwise!
