The Ultralight Workstand's aluminium structure meant I wasn't worried about corrosion when using it to wash my bikes
(Clockwise) The sliding jaws on the Feedback stand make light work of clamping the bike, the other adjustments are chunky and easy to use.
|Separating yourself from a big chunk of hard earned cash on a bike stand might not be top of your priority list. I personally put it off for years, and I also made the mistake of getting a cheap one the first time 'round, which failed soon after. For eight years, the clamp didn't work and I just hung the saddle on it. So, I was pretty happy when the Feedback Sports Ultralight Workstand turned up in the post. The huge tripod style base is extremely stable, the design also helps it to work well on uneven ground. When folded down, it is the most compact stand in Feedback's range. If you have limited space in your garage, the tripod style base may take up more room than you have. A two-legged triangular design allows you to align the main upright of the stand closer to a wall. The sliding style of clamp means that if you switch between many different bikes, no re-adjusting is required, just offer up whichever tube needs clamping and slide shut and tighten.|
All Feedback stands feature a 360-degree clamp head, which can be easily turned if you need to clamp to a top tube to install a dropper post, or lift the front end of a bike to bleed a brake. Releasing the bike is a little more difficult than with the heavier and more costly Feedback Pro Elite Stand, which features a spring-loaded release button. With the Ultralight, you will need to support the weight of the bike until you have unscrewed the knob far enough to allow the jaws to slide. Also worth noting is that the Ultralight Stand may be on the short side for tall riders to comfortably work with, so be forewarned. Other than that quip, the Feedback Sports Ultralight Workstand is arguably the best looking stand on the market, and if you need something small and light for traveling, this could be your best option - very simple to use, incredibly stable, with a solid clamping system. - Paul Aston
