Tacx Spider Team - highly recommended and cheaper than the Park ones!

Feedback Sports IMO are superior to Park. Haven't tried Tacx.

Tacx Spider Team FTW.
One of the best bike related purchases I ever made.

That's a possibility. I have the Lidl clamp stand currently.
How would you fabricate the fork QR attachment?
you could use a fork mount designed for a bike rack. they run around $20

I have an older style Park stand that clamps to the frame/seatpost.
It is quite large when folded, so I wanted something more compact, but with the stands featured in this thread, how do you work on front caliper and disc brakes without the wheel in place?
Not picking holes in the design, just genuinely interested from people using them before I take the plunge.

You flip the bike from the front and take out the rear wheel instead when you want to work on the front.
The Parktool and Tacx stands all have dual size clamps to fit front/rear dropouts as needed.

I have the park prs-20. Suits me fine. No complaints and would recommend to others.
Just a word of advice: if you do enough wrenching at home to consider buying a workstand, don't go cheap. You kind of get what you pay for in this area. And it should be something you buy once and use for years or decades. Very frustrating to work on a flimsy stand.
