Our Take on the Park Tool PCS-10 Home Mechanic Repair Stand
After comparing the Park Tool PCS-10 to competitor home repair stands, we selected it for home repair of our bikes. From the moment we removed the product from its shipping box, we were impressed. The stand is sturdy and seems like it can withstand heavy use, which we have subjected it to with no issues. When the height is fully extended, the top of the bike is over our heads, so no bending is required to perform repairs.
The cam-style clamps make it fast and easy to secure bikes to the PCS-10 so we can spend more time working on our bikes than fiddling with the stand. There are also numerous add on components that will make a trip to the bike shop mechanic a thing of the past. At $60 or more per visit, the stand and the add ons will end up paying for themselves in about a year. The stand is also ideal for cleaning the bike and allows you to do minor tasks like cleaning the chain and cleaning the wheels with awkwardness.
When the PCS-10 is not in use, it can be folded and stored in a closet or on a shelf. The folding feature also comes in handy for transporting the stand in a car. The stand is also delivered nearly put together. You should be able to have it ready for action in less than five minutes after opening up the box. Overall, this is a great stand for the money and should last for many years.
