    Suggestions on a repair stand that doesn't cost a fortune but can also fold up into a nice package?? My current Park stand is great but it's an eyesore on my patio to the condo.

    Agreed, i have the same one, fold ups pretty small. Performance bike usually has them on sale for around $150 or so a lot. If not, you can get the PCS-9 which is about the same but can be had for under $100.

    That looks like the best bang for the buck I have seen.

    I've got an older version of that Feedback stand - it's quality. And very portable.

    The feedback stands are very good quality. I have had one for 6 or so years with no issues. Would buy again for sure.

    I have the Feedback Pro, it's great. Had it for years and still works awesome. A big plus for me is the ratchet action close, which makes it easy to load one-handed, especially with a DH bike.

    If you want to sleek, you could make a fixed mount on the patio and then make some sort of quick release mount, drop in post, etc and just buy the head.

    I just found out that Feedback's HQ is right next to Spot Bikes and Yeti.

    Do you suspect that it's also related to the proximity of State 38 Distilling and Ski Bum Rum Distillery? :D

    Maybe for when after customers throw Spot and Yeti products through their respective windows, because boycott, they can go to the place where the products work best... even if temporary.
