Feedback Sports Pro Mechanic HD

Press Release: Feedback Sports

Feedback Sports is happy to announce the all-new Pro Mechanic HD repair stand. Based on our winning designs and proven engineering, this repair stand sets a new standard in lightweight, portable, and functional support for the modern bikes we love to ride.


With newly oversized telescoping main tubes, larger tripod leg profiles, a wide and stable base, stronger jaws, and faster closure, the Pro Mechanic HD matches the expanded capability of today’s bicycles. It can support bikes up to 120 pounds (54.4kg) and tube diameters to 2.6 inches (6.6cm).
- Oversized, anodized 6061-T6 aluminum construction is ultralight, corrosion resistant and incredibly durable.
- Ideally suited for heavier bicycles: 145% stiffer than the Pro Elite.
- Stiff, 3D-profile tripod stabilizer arms and durable, replaceable rubber end caps create ultimate support leg stability even on uneven surfaces.
- Total load capacity of 120lbs (39kg) accommodates service on all road, cyclocross, mountain bikes, and electric bikes.

An all new clamp head features stiffer construction, greater clutch capacity, and a larger angle adjustment knob. Easily rotate your bike in the stand to access every part. Even the stoutest, contemporary enduro bikes, downhill bikes, and ebikes are no match for the enhanced capability of the Pro Mechanic HD repair stand.
- Oversized knob to fix the position of a 360-degree rotating clamp, providing easy access to all parts of your bicycle.
- Stronger, reengineered clutch design holds any bike at all angles for repairs: 45% greater rotational grip than Pro Elite.
- New, ratcheting and rotating crank for jaw closure is faster and one-hand operable: closes 60% faster than Pro Elite.
- Clamp opening up to 2.6″ (6.6cm) accommodates the largest diameter frame tubes.
- New, replaceable rubber pads on forged clamp jaws and micro-adjustment rotary arm secures and protects expensive components and beautifully painted frames.

- Available travel bag is water-resistant, durable and padded to protect your stand and your other equipment
- Quick-release fittings make setup and storage fast and easy

 I love this scene, a wealthy mi-aged white man enjoys wilderness along his 4x4 pickup, ebike, neat toolbox and a $500 bike stand, what not to love?

 I would guess someone driving a primered '93 Volkswagen scirocco with mismatched rims isnt the target market for a $500 ebike stand.

At least the girl has the sense to ride a standard bike.

 @SacAssassin: I think it's a great commercial that hits directly into the proper customer base.
Btw, it's clear that he's riding a standard bike and the ebike is his chicks Smile That's how it typically goes, out of all possible configurations I have never ever seen:
- girl on normal bike and a guy on ebike
- mixed normal/ebike company, except a couple
Now, this statement is not to discredit women in any way, just never seen such a configuration yet.

 Might explain how I got the sport model on the cheap 2 weeks ago.

Thing that sucks the most is to upgrade to the Pro clamp on my "Sport" model...the clamp is twice what I paid for the stand.

 Why do you bring up being a white guy? Does that bother you? Would you say the same thing being if a black guy? "I love the scene, a middle-aged black man enjoys wilderness along with his 4x4 pickup.... "

 @lkubica: At this point throwing in a minority into your photo just to be "progressive" is equally cliché, because companies are doing it all the time just because they know it makes them look "woke". Also, you have no idea what that man's nationality or background is, so why does it matter? He could be part Native American, he was dirt poor as a child, and finally made it to a point where he can enjoy nice things, for all you know.

Would that appease your White Knight feelings of anti-clichés?

 Pretty high ebike surcharge in place there.

The "I don´t want to pedal" tax.
  • 11 0
 I wasn't...I have a pro elite and it does flex and can be unstable with larger 35lb bikes. Especially with the fork or rear wheel out. The large 'wingnut' to tightened the clamp is meh. Overall it's a fantastic stand because of its weight and features. The roll pin on part of the clamp did come partially out within the first few uses and jam it up. Now I just make sure it's lined up, and there is no binding. But, other than the roll pin being loose, this new version looks like it has addressed all of the perceived weaknesses of its predecessor. This new version is going to be the best portable stand regardless of the weight or propulsion method of your bike. If I were getting a new one, this would be it.

Shit is genuinely expensive these days, it's not just a fabrication of currency inflation

 What they really should offer is a handle bar holder so you can pull out the fork and do headset service etc.

 when i remove the fork, i slide in the headset remover tool from the top at the same time (with the splayed side pointed up). it holds the stem and spacers in place nicely

 Does no one proofread these before sending them off? They copy-pasted the specs for the new stand and combined them with the lighter Pro-Elite stand specs.

Pro-Elite
Total load capacity of 85lbs (38.6kg)
Weight 12.6lbs (5.7kg)

Pro Mechanic
Total load capacity of 120lbs (54.4kg)
Weight 18lbs (8.2kg)

 Unit conversion is hard hehehe

 @homerjm: It’s not even unit conversion. They included both weights: once it says 18lbs (8kg) and then it says 18lbs (5.7kg)

 I just got an Feedback Elite stand last December. I think they could improve the tripod base design, the stand it tippy unless the bike weight is centered on one of the legs. I think I'd get one of the Y base designed stands if I had to do it over. The clamp and fit and finish of the stand is awesome, it's just tippy unless the weight is just in the right spot.
  • 2 1
 The two-legged stands are unstable as well. Remove a wheel and they want to tilt over. I have an Elite Pro coming one of the next days. Hope I won't regret.

 I have one from 2001 when they were feedback sports. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Last bike stand I’ll ever need. It’s a great product.
  • 5 1
 For the "pro mechanic" who brings their entire kit into the wilderness for a ride (i.e. no campsite to be seen, etc.), and you have a partner that loves to just watch you wrench on your bike.

At least they used a Frontier and not a Tacoma TRD Pro to avoid all of the typical stereotypes.

 I’ve got an ultimate bike stand (previous name for same company) from 2003-2004. It’s amazing and still going strong. Would buy the new stand in a minute if I needed one.

 @saladdodger: that’s because typically the male bike enthusiast is dragging his girl along and doesn’t want to spend a crap ton of money on a bike for her if she’s not gonna like it in three weeks. Notice I said typically. Yes I’m aware that the reverse of the situation is true. It is rare though.

 So hes basically shuttling his Ebike with his truck -nice

 Price is a little steep, but the majority of people I know with Feeback gear are fellow wrenches who got it at a discount. If the quality is as good as the previous Pro, I suspect this will be the new default stand for privateer race mechanics, mobile mechanics, and shop rats with limited space at home.

 It's perfectly fine. You don't want to scratch the stanchion but if you are really worried just wipe down the post and clamp. It's also not going to mess up a fully extended dropper, issues can happen only when you lift by the seat when a dropper is partially down.
