Ultimately this worked fine but I had some trouble installing it and it had some issues. I couldn't use it horizontally as pictured because the clamp would pinch the cables for my shifters, I didn't think about that when I ordered. I turned the clamp 90 degrees and used it to hold the vertical part of my frame under the seat post, and that worked but I had to drill a hole in the metal arm for the bolt, it would have been better if they had just pre-drilled a hole for installing it verticallly. Also the screws they included were not good, they stripped extremely easily and just seemed like the wrong type of screws, I'd suggest getting different screws depending on what you're installing it on. Once installed it supports the weight of the bike but feels a bit bouncy, I think it is pretty solid and secure but it doesn't really feel that way. On the plus side, the clamp mechanism is very easy to clamp and unclamp and holds the bike firmly.
With Covid the family has been riding bikes a lot more. A simple tune up goes for $70 or more so I decided to do the simple work myself (chain oiling, cleaning, etc). This helps to raise the bike and do the work. Sturdy for normal sized bikes. I attached it to a 2x6 beam with four screws.
I have it mounted to a post in my garage. It's great to have a stand that's stable, and off the floor.
I actually ended up sending this back as I decided to spend a little more on the full stand. That being said it seems solid for the price. I used it for a mountain bike and it held the weight just fine, and locked into place easily.
Nice sturdy unit. Strong enough to hold my 20 year old Trek. Wish it could rotate but that issue is easily addressed by turning it 90 degrees. A good product that meets my occasional bike maintenance and repair without spending $200.
This is great piece for the restoration of my 1984 Diamond Back I bought new as a kid. Sturdy mount, holds well to multiple size frames.
Does a great job of being able to hold a variety of bikes. It would be 5 stars if the clamp could easily swivel
Decent price and ok design. Mounting hardware is super soft and stripped even with pre-drilled holes and proper care. I think you could change it to a vertical mount for seat post clampingv of desired.
