A good quality workstand isnâ€™t essential for looking after your bike but once you have one youâ€™ll begin to wonder how you ever managed without. One of the main problems with them has always been the price
Workstands worth buying tend to cost around Â£200. Anything nearer Â£100 is fine in the short term, but experience has shown that they just wonâ€™t last, be strong enough, stable enough, or will simply be superseded by a new model in a yearâ€™s time, leaving you short of parts should you need to repair yours. So just a fiver over Â£150 is a good price for a stand â€“ so long as it works.
The Sport-Mechanic does work well and thereâ€™s little doubt, if used properly, it should last you for years. The main tubes â€“ the legs and the two sections of the upright â€“ are constructed from good quality black anodised aluminium alloy. The legs fold out to a wide and stable triangle nearly 1.4m in diameter, and thereâ€™s an impressive height adjustment range, from 107-166cm.
The clamps for securing the legs and the two sections that form the main upright feature easy-to-use wingnuts rather than the dearer quick-releases used on Feedbackâ€™s more expensive stands, and we found the whole workstand very solid and stable in use. Our only concern is with the clamp on the head. The jaws open to a huge 48mm, and close right up to hold a 20mm diameter tube tightly enough, but weâ€™re not keen on how the clamping is achieved.
Opening and closing the jaws is done using a T-shaped bar at the front of the head â€“ itâ€™s just a threaded bolt that moves the jaws closer together or further apart. In the wrong hands, it would be all too easy to overtighten this, and itâ€™s easily strong enough to crush a lightweight tube. This is still a very good stand for the money, just make sure you take care when using it.
