Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

I use a Feedback Sports Pro-Elite workstand.

I really like it because it is not a clamp style for fear of damaging seat tubes. You push the clamp area closed around a tube and tighten with a knob. Then there is a quick release button. The stand is very versitile and well built.



I have the same one and I would recommend it. I had cheap stand before and after owning the Feedback Pro Elite I wish I would have messed around with DIY stand and another cheaper stand.

My thoughts exactly.
Also, I think the last thing you need in a stand is it to be light weight. It's not like you are carrying it on your ride.

When I am inside or outside washing my bike I want the stand to be solid and heavy enough to stay right where it is.
(the difference between 12 & 25 lbs means nothing unless you are fliying all over the country/world with it...I'm not :) , so I like them to be heavy enough)

The Feedback Pro Elite is the best folding stand I have ever used and probably the most flexible. The Sprint Fork Mount one is also a great option, more for road bikes in my opinion. (I got annoyed with this style with muddy mountain and cx bikes, plus dealing with through axles. )

For something at home in the workshop, I'll never part with the simple and classic Park PRS-4W. Just can't beat that bolted on stability.

Park PRS-7 bench mount. It's bolted to an L-shaped chunk of steel which I chuck into the bench vice.
