Park Tool PRS-25 work stand

Park describes the PRS-25 as their "team issue" work stand. This is the one a number of World Cup teams use, as it's both solid, packs down to almost nothing and only weighs 6kg. It's a full 60 inches high at full extension and uses a hexagonal tubing system to provide rigidity and to make sure the components slide well together when it comes time to pack it away. MSRP $299.95 USD. www.parktool.com

PRS-25
The clamp is both simple and solid..


Pinkbike's Take:
bigquotesIt's easy to understand why this is a popular stand among professionals. It offers almost workshop-like stability in a package that can easily pack down to 47 inches long and is light enough to carry strapped to a backpack. While the lever at the head may seem small, it generates a surprising amount of power, enough to rip a large chunk of flesh from my finger when I was cold, hungover, and not paying enough attention. The grips don't seem to leave a mark on your bike either. A class act. - Matt Wragg



Oury Lock-On grips

These snuck in here this week as an old favourite. They clamp onto your bar using the tried and trusted ODI Lock-On system, and the rubber grip can be replaced when it is worn, without needing to buy new collars. As grips go, these are some of the biggest grips this side of special-needs ergo grips, but the compound is relatively hard, so they don't move in your palm as you ride. MSRP $35.00 USD. www.ourygrips.com

Oury grips
Big grips


Pinkbike's Take:
bigquotesThese have been on my bike for around five years now and I refuse to use anything else on my own bike. On average a set lasts a year, but there is life in them well beyond that, and on my spare bikes you'll find three or four year old sets of these. If you like big grips, they are the most comfortable out there and they last forever, what more could you ask for? - Matt Wragg



Finish Line 1-2-3 Starter Kit

The Finish Line 1-2-3 Starter Kit brings together three of Finish Line's most popular products in a single pack. It includes their ever-popular wet chain lube, a degreaser and the uniquely shaped Grunge Brush. MSRP $19.99 USD. www.finishlineusa.com

Finish Line chain care kit
The Grunge Brush, chain lube and degreaser


Pinkbike's Take:
bigquotesWe didn't take this seriously until we spent a day out on the bikes riding in the rain on sandy soil. By the time we returned to the car the bikes grated and scraped every time you touched a pedal. This had been tucked away in a hiding hole in the back of the car and provided everything we needed to try and salvage our drivetrains there and then in the car park, without leaving them to dry out and start to rust on the long drive home. OK, we would probably only buy this kit once to get the brush as you don't always want to carry a full-on chain cleaner with you, but the chain lube and degreaser are things we tend to keep around anyway, so it's definitely a worthwhile purchase. - Matt Wragg

 I LOVE my Park stand. Worth every penny. In Amsterdam all shops I saw just ran ropes from the ceiling. They said that was because the omafeitsen need so much work from all angles because of all the guards and paniers and baskets etc. A stand is better, but ropes are better than when I used to bust my back stopping down over an upside-down bike.

 Expensive - because you want quality that lasts for a very very long time. Mine is 7 feet tall has a soft clamp, weighs 30lb and no problems over 10 years of heavy use.

Clamping frames is not good practice. Clamping the seatpost, better.

My dream stand:

 Buy a PK-1112 for $60 or so, get $40 worth of steel and hardware, spend a bit of time welding and painting... and boom, straight ghetto-fabulous workstand for a third the price of this one but still with the awesome park clamp head.

 or just get a bike hand for £60, the clamp isnt as solid as the park tool one but its a really nice stand for the money

 With a bit of modification, my $30 Aldi work stand holds up my downhill bike...

 Im surprised PB you didn't review the PCS-9 stand like this one here... www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=5787 Its about $180-200 canadian and its probably the best quality stand for the least amount of money for buying a complete stand. No, it doesn't fold up as nice. But I have a small car and it tucks into it nicely for when I do bigger road trips and I might be having to do some work on my bike.... or if you don't want to travel with it.. it stores nicely in the corner. I prefer the turn style clamp on the stand over the one tested... but love the clamp on the shop quality park stand.. but its expensive.. so for the money and the quality is a win for me... and my back ( Because I don't have to work hunched over working on my bike on the ground. )

 I'm using the cheapest parktools stand with some custom made trays for it- quality bit of kit- if you're not lugging it to races (its quite heavy) but just using for a qorkshop setup there is really no need to drop 200 quid on a top of the line one!

 Feedback sports makes an excellent stand. For the money I find their sport stand to be more stable then the Park consumer version. When it comes to a shop stand the Park are untouchable, but then again the price of a Shop stand is crazy compared to the consumer stands.

 I wish I wasn't such a cheap ass when I bought my stand. It's a piece of crap, heavy as hell, and a pain to fold that doesn't get very small when folded. My buddy has a Park and it is great and is well worth the cash.

 Exactly, Looking at all us cheap SOBs, PB ought to at least give a nod to the "home version" of some of the cool trick top-of-the-line stuff they review. It's in these discussions where we might see the difference between the high end item, and it's middle or bottom of the line product we may be more likely to buy. Tell us what's the differene in the products and money, and we can see which holds better value for us. Pros serious racer types probably can justify the better, where many of us can see the valye in a $100 stand, over a crappy home-grown one that still ate $50 of our hard earned coin

 For you US folks...this one is on sale. I can tell you from experience it's quality. Stable as a rock and works really well too. Pretty portable also.

It basically takes up no room when not in use, and has been working well for me going on 4 years now.

 I'm sure that PB will do a ghetto workstand at some point. I've seen lots of people who have one, so i'm sure there'll be a "make your own" one at some point.
  • + 1
 What is the PK-1112?
  • + 1
 I'm gonna go ahead and say that any 2 legged stand is not going to be at all that stable. I owned one for years and eventually realized that that was the fundamental design flaw in those types of stands. It only has 2 legs. Like kootenaycycles mentioned the feedback stand is way more stable and there is a reason for that. It has a tripod. Its physics, there is no arguing with it. The only drawback of tripod stands is that they are a bit bigger (because there is a 3rd leg) so if you don't mind a wobbly stand and put a high premium on being able to take your stand anywhere get the park tools. Or if you are like me and your stand just stands around (get it) in your garage all the time, then get yourself a more stable and much cheaper stand like the feedback or even (god forbid) this stand at performance. www.performancebike.com/bikes/Product_10054_10551_1030266_-1_400152__400152

I also have a Park PCS-9 at home, does the job no problem any only cost GBP£60

the PCS-9 is very good for the money compared to other budget stands I have used

 Park Tool PRS-25 work stand... ONE OF THE WORST STANDS EVER
  • + 1
 @olibawler

how so?

never had any issues with mine at home (and I am used to work on 25kg Kestrel stands in the workshop at my work place)
  • + 1
 @hampsteadbandit

When you try working on a bike in the vertical position, the stand just falls over. It's very wobbly and slow to put on and take off bikes. Adjusting the little tightening arm while trying to hold up a bike is very annoying.

As far as collapsible stands go, its not bad.

In my opinion, if i wanted something small at home, I would go for a wall mount or a bench mount for much more support and less money. If drilling into a wall or bench is a problem you can always mount the stand to a metal plate and use it on a vice.
  • + 1
 @olibawler

thanks for your input, and to share your expieriences

I am currently using my Park PCS-9 for my road bike (Specialized Tarmac) and mountain bike (Specialized Stumpjumper Expert Carbon) neither are heavy bikes so perhaps my experience of working on a FR / DH bike using the PCS-9 is therefore limited!

I can easily hold my bikes with one arm whilst tightening the clamp with the other. We also do this at work using Kestrel stands whether its a 6.5kg road bike or 40lb freeride bike, working on bikes every day certainly keeps your body 'ready' for lifting bikes!
  • + 31
 Clearly, nothing less than a $300 work stand should touch that $10,000 bike.

 OURY grips! 100%, i wouldn't ride anything else. I have used Ruffians and all other types of those small knurled skinny grips and I get nothing but pain. Being a taller rider who has big hands, the small grips left my hands and forearms fully pumped on a high speed race run...Mont st Anne, Whistler.... switching to the OURY grip took all that away. I use gloves for DH, and with the soft compound, it doesn't resonate vibration at all, wet conditions with a glove, stick like glue...not too bad with out a glove, but I have had the same grips, running 7 yrs now. Same grips I bought in 2006, i run on my M9 today!! Very durable! Best grip ever as far as I am concerned. I also have them on my SS...fantastic!
  • + 2
 U-bet man! I switched to these and the difference is unreal. Big gain for little money.
  • + 1
 they are good, I like them, but I have race face strafe now on two bikes, they are a tad bigger than the ourys and are not quite as rubbery>> last a bit longer.
  • + 1
 I love the tacky feeling, but yeh the strafe grips look good too.
  • + 1
 got the slip on versions on my bike. i just put them on with a little 3M spray mount glue. solid as a rock and super comfy. i actually first tried these on a motorcycle and then found out they had em' for bikes. definitely cool. and cheap.
  • + 2
 I ate a grape fruit on my first set and the juice got on the rubber and they became uber sticky for the rest of their life. They help with my wrists by damping out vibration better than any other grip. They are the best grips you can buy period if you want to hold on in the rough stuff. They work great in the wet for me. Maybe too grippy for barspins if you are into that.
  • + 4
 I've had the oury grips for over six years, I recently upgraded my bike so bought new grips from a different brand. Lasted two rides before I put the oury back on, I reckon I can get another couple of years out of them. Outstanding grips
  • + 6
 Bought some ourys when I was suffering arm pump at my first mega a few years back. Definitely helped with hand and arm fatigue.
  • + 3
 I had these OURY grips for more then ten years. They are perfect for bigger hands and offer very good grip. But their outstanding grip can also cause problems, as I often got blisters on my hands. I am using foam rubber grips now which also offer excelent grip and never got any blisters again.
  • + 1
 I used to like OURY grips for trail riding and freeride. In the days of bikes that were not super plush, damping that was not that sensitive, a big chubby grip could really take the edge off. I immediatly discovered an issue when I went to use them for high speed DH riding though, I find that they simply are not firm enough, nor do they have enough grip. Lacking knurling or texture they can become slippery. Wet riding is a nightmare. You end up squeezing them too tight and your hand moves around because of the smooth surface. This is what ends up causing discomfort and blisters. Don't get me wrong, the OURY grip is a classic. For a lot of guys they are the go to grip and they do last forvever. I used to be one of those guys. Now you find Ruffians on each one of my bikes and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
  • + 1
 Have had both the lock-ons and original style on my bikes fpr years. You can't really use slip on oury grips for anything freeide/dh because of the softness and "wiggle" you feel, as you mentioned. The lock on version does have a harder rubber that is thinner because of the plastic core - I find it the perfect grip for me. Working fine in the Vancouver weather as well. Anyone who has big mittens should definitely give these a chance. Anyone tried the newish Lizard Skins North Shore? Just like an Oury pattern but with knurling.
  • + 2
 First two products are great, but Mike, that grunge brush and tiny bottle of degreaser are worthless. I originally bought it for my motorcycle and found it to be terrible. The long bristles spray degreaser all over you when your trying to clean your chain. An old t-shirt works way better and the key is clean your chain freqeuntly so you don't need to scrub the hell out of it.
  • + 2
 An old t-shirt will get into the links? Me thinks no.
  • + 2
 I use ParkTool CB-2, Motorex works great too, and an ol T. If your chain is that nasty then an old toothbrush. I've been riding dirt bikes, street bikes, mtn bikes for 30+ years and I never have any chain problems and my chain always look super clean and lasts a long time. But if you like the product, to each their own. I'm just sharing my experience.
  • + 1
 There is no reason to get inside the links because then all you are doing is removing the inner lubrication and replacing it with degreaser, which will compromise your chain.

Just clean off the excess lube and wipe the outsides of the chain with a
rag with a little degreaser on it and you will be cleaning your chain in the most efficient way possible while not compromising it. There is a reason why Shimano and kmc recommend not using solvent or desserts on their chains; because it is bad for them. Period.

He said he cleaned his chain in the parking lot, what an irrespinsible ass. Leaving chain lube and degreaser on the ground is not good for the environment or the image of mountain bikers since it likely left a big oil slick in the parking lot
  • + 1
 I use and love the Grunge Brush. It's the easiest, and simplest chain cleaning device I've used. However, Simple Green works just as good as any bike specific degreaser and is much, much cheaper. And for Lube, I will only ever use Rock n Roll!
  • + 1
 I have the PRS-25 - and I have to say it is the ideal home stand - and that is why it is $300. When we are going out to a weekend/24 hour race I don't think twice about throwing it in the car - light and tiny. The clamp is awesome - doesn't need a ton of seat post real estate. The legs are super sturdy and very light.
Are there other options - yes. Do they work - yes. Could you drill out a 2x4 and get a pipe clamp? Yup - get set up for $25.

This is super easy to fold up - I live in an apartment, and can't leave a stand out all the time.
It it adjustable height - really easy to adjust.
Super Stable.
This clamp mechanism is awesome! Super easy to switch from one size seatpost to another - cam+Screw makes for a great set up.
After using the clamp at the shop I worked at, I had a hard time living life without it.

I could spend the $300 on a new set of brakes or a new set of cranks, but I know I will have this thing forever, and that I will also be able to get replacement parts from Park Tool if I need them - they still offer replacement rubber clamps for the bike stands they make 25 years ago...

 bike stands are surely great kits to add your tools but in my opinion you need one that suits your need , if you are going to use that to wash your bike and lube your chain than any garden furniture has side to rest your bike on to will do the job.
If you want it for medium to high level of services than it's really worth to get one , so much options to chose from mid ranges are usually as good as top ends just a little stiffer or folds up smaller or clamps faster...
You need to check the height it not much use if you are 6 foot or 180cm and over and get something lift your wheels only below your knee level .
I looked one for me for a while as I was not sure if it's necessary than bought one of eBay
I wanted one fold away small and tall enough in action as I am just over 6 foot
I got this one :http://feedbacksports.com/shop/Pro-Ultralight-Work-Stand-P2C1.aspx
it's been great now these are expensive I get mine of eBay second hand for noting but fast clamp system was lack of feedback (I guess it was selling reason) causing few more spins to release the lock bolt in the clamp ,10 mins service solved the problem 1/2 spin than pull apart clamp fully extends .
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND
  • + 1
 I don't know. I wouldn't recommend getting any of the amateur models with less than 3 legs. They're not very stable and can dump a bike if you're not careful. Sometimes they were more hassle than they were worth. If you do get a repair stand, definitely get a quality one, and invest once. It's not something you're likely to break. You'll have it for years and you'll be surprised at how often you use it. Even tweaking shifting and dialing out cable stretch is so much easier when not holding the bike in the air with one hand.
  • + 1
 Oury grips are good if you HAVE to have large grips. Personally I prefer to have thin grips, wear gloves and have a fork set up well. If you've got 8 inches of travel and a 2.5" DH tyre, you shouldn't really need to be too bothered about trail vibration.
  • + 2
 Not about trail vibration - it's about having large hands and preventing hand fatigue/arm pump by grasping something too small. Anyone with small hands who likes Ruffians for example, will likely not appreciate the ourys.

 the team issue parktool stand is over kill. i have the entry level home mechanic stand. Which was way cheaper at 139 bucks. It works flawlessly. I even paid extra to get the fancy work tray to hold my tools and bolts. Not worth shelling out more money for the team

 I find it funny how Mountain Bikers are somehow brainwashed into spending far too much on items they sometimes don't need, Moutain biking is all about Money now. People are lazy too.. not hard to make a DIY Bikestand for very cheap.
  • + 2
 Most components on mountain bikes are close to $100. Spend the money on the stand and quit complaining. This will last 10 years. That's $30 a year. A third of the price when you really think about it!
  • + 1
 Those Oury lock-ons are the only way to go! Most comfortable grip I've ever used, and super durable too! IMO best grip ever created.

Unfortunately, my saddle ripped right open when I tried to put it on that park tool stand at a shop. They had a stationary stand with the same clamp. The bolt was sticking out and when I raised my bike up to hang it by the saddle nose, the saddle clipped the bolt and that was that. I later stitched it back together and it has held up fine. If you're not looking to hang bikes by the saddle nose, then it's an awesome stand. To be fair though, the stationary one at the lbs had a freakishly long bolt end sticking out. Probably for larger bikes?

And that grunge brush is awesome! Have a motorcycle one, need to buy one for my bike chain since I thought it was one size fits all.

 Why would you grip it by the saddle ? most people use the seat post.

 For real, anyone with hindsight 20/20 can see that!

 I didnt put the saddle in the clamp, I just set the nose on top of the stand arm for a real quick adjustment, didn't want to put the seatpost in the clamp cause I have a dropper post and didn't want to get the 4mm to adjust the seatpost position

 Got the workstand myself, and I LOVE IT!!!! Best workstand I've ever owned.... had a few diffrent ones, but I've gotta say this is by far the easiest to use, and adjust etc etc... and the $299 price tag isn't quite right.. you can find em quite a bit cheaper on the internet at different places..... def recommend to anyone to buy if your in the market for a new stand or just one in general.

 I've had the Feedback (Ultimate at the time) Elite stand for the better part of a decade. They have replaced a part that I broke outside of warranty (sent two in case I had another 'moment') and their product and service could not be better. I considered ordering another clamp to hang two bikes at a time. I can't recall the weight rating but it would take 100lbs I would imagine easily. It's solid as a brick house, telescopes maybe 8 feet and has the perfect clamp. To me, that's where the value in the stand is. It wasn't terribly cheap except looking back at trouble free service over many years and comparing it to the price of some of the gear hung from it......

Has anyone compared the Ruffian ODI to the Oury? I've always sworn by the ODI but like the sounds of the hard rubber on the Oury...

 SO using you reasoning, I should buy a K-Mart bike and just fix/replace things that break instead of spending crazy ammounts on money on a decent bike?

 If you have not worked with both cheap crap and expensive pro stuff you cannot judge on the VALUE of one compared to the other. Value such as not having the inconveniences of the crappy stand, or the potential savings of time, effort and money spend mending it. Value is different from PRICE! If you think the extra value is worth the expense, speak for yourself. For others, now matter how stellar the stand, it may never be worth this kind of money.

You, tenacious3l, started off by stating 'everyone...', however this (and 'price' in particular) is all highly subjective to things like: how much money you make, how often you would use it, your perceived (in)conveniences, etc.
