Disclaimer: As a product reviewer for Commute By Bike, I am providing my unbiased opinion of any products provided to us by any company. I do not posses any type of relationship with the product’s company or parent companies. Companies that send in their goods to be reviewed do not compensate me any way.

My background: I am 5″7″ 190 lbs. I am a bad mamma jamma that rides a fixed gear bike during the day and when I get aggro, I’ll hop on my mountain bike and hit some single track.

Testing Grounds: My Garage, and CommuteByBike Picnic.

Here are the specs:
SLIDE LOCK CLAMP
Award-winning Pro-Stand clamp with quarter-turn action, quickly clamps without crimping or marring seat posts and tubes. Fits in tight places and on different tube diameters..
MOST PORTABLE
Folds compactly for travel or storage. Folded size is small enought to fit in travel cases and the smallest trunks. Easy set-up/tear down with no tools required.
TRUE PORTABILITY
Quickly folds into a compact, lightweight unit.
HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE
Ratcheting,quick-releases quickly set-up and tear- down. Sets up from 38″ to 58″.
MOST STABLE BASE
Tripod configuration holds up to 60 lbs. on uneven surfaces (i.e. dirt, grass, slopes etc.). Large rubber footcaps enhance grip on all surfaces and won’t fall off.

Here’s the deal:
This is the perfect for the home mechanic that loves to work on their bikes. It is also perfect for taking it along on races, bicycle events or any other occassion where you would need to work on a bike.

The repair stand can handle any type of bike out there. From vintage bikes to tandem bikes.

Yes, you can even use it to service a fork.

I used the Ultimate Support Stand to assemble the Xtracycle onto the Ibex Alpine.

See all that…its all soft and rubbery to protect your bike’s paint job.

Would I recommend it? Yes. I love working on my bikes. If you want to save money on bicycle repairs. Get one of these stands and learn how to fix them. Ulitimately you’ll save yourself hundreds of dollars.

It’s even portable. Just slip in into the nifty carrying case.

The case even has pockets for your tools.

See how compact the stand is…

As much as I love this rack, Ultimate Support some how thought otherwise. They discontinued this stand.
But they do have other stands available on their site.

    This looks like the perfect bike stand. I noticed Ultimate brand bike stands are not too pricey. You get what you pay for, a great quality, durable stand.

    Dearest,

    I have had one of these stands for years and I use it to store my bike when I am not riding it. It is great for protecting my bike. However, the rubber on the clamp that holds the bike has deteriorated (even scratched my bike) and I would like to replace the clamp or rubber to protect my bike again. Any ideas about whether that can be done or where to get parts? Thank you.

    Ruth,
    Apparently they sold off a music-related division of the company, and the name went with it.
    They’re now Feedback Sports, and you can find them here:
