Our global test team has been pushing products to the very limit on the world’s toughest trails. In The Lab, durability is rewarded and weaknesses have nowhere to hide. As well the portable Feedback Pro Elite bike stand, which is a loyal companion of our UK editor Trev since 4 years.
There is nothing more annoying than trying to repair your bike while it balances against a wall. The most important tool in an enthusiastic mechanic’s tool shed is the work stand, allowing easy and secure access to all points of the bike. UK editor Trev has been using the Feedback Pro Elite workstand for over four years now, and the abuse it has suffered is evident in its fading paint, battle scars, and corrosion.
The lightweight aluminium folding stand (5,8 kg) with a comfortable operating height from 1070 mm up to 1800 mm has endured two years bouncing around in a van following the EWS circuit, countless trackside repairs in the sun and rain, and finally the insult of sitting outside, unprotected, in Scotland for two years of daily use as a bike wash stand! Amazingly, the stand still functions perfectly and the soft grip jaws have always clamped firmly without marking or unexpected releases.
Trev has found the stand totally stable in use, easy to adjust, and one of his best investments. Trev is sure that with some love and lube, the stand will be back to its former glory, and he considers the Feedback Pro Elite as the marker by which all other stands should be judged by.
