Excellent piece of kit, stable, secure, portable and has plenty of adjustment to get the bike just where you want it. This was a replacement for an old stand that broke. Though the old stand was far more expensive, this bike tools stand seems much more solid and stable and has more adjustment. Complete bargain, and as always from Merlin, it arrived quickly.
This has to be the best value workstand around. Sturdy construction, easy to erect, soft clamp action, angle and height adjustment - everything youll need. Very similar to a Minoura stand that I have but this one is about half the price!
I looked at a few different workstands before going for this one from Merlin Cycles but all the positive reviews swayed me. The delivery from Merlin was really quick and when the stand arrived I was really impressed. I already own a heavy pro style workstand but it doesn't fold and takes up loads of space. This one folds down small quickly and easily and yet is very stable and solid when you're working on a bike. An excellent bit of kit and great value from Merlin.
Great bit of kit, its built like a sherman tank, the real deal. Easy to use, no building needed, ready to go straight out of the box . You wont beat this for the money. Super fast searvice from merlin as always !
Very easy to assemble and start using. This workstand is well constructed and offers plenty of choice as to how you want to position the bike you're working on. Great value too - wish I'd bought one years ago...
Finally treated myself to a workstand - what a difference they make. This one works well with all the adjustments you need and packs away small, so perfect for the garage.
Look mum! No hands! Tired of the 'post ride balancing bike against bin' clean, I invested in the Bike Tools workstand, based mainly on t'internet reviews and cost as I wasn't willing to spend 100s of pounds. What a great bit of kit. It folds away neatly, is really easy to put up, it's a really cool brushed gold colour, it's light but sturdy, has a nice rugged clamp and makes post ride maintenance a joy. I know there are probably better stands available, but at almost twice the price, I can't imagine them being twice as good!
A well made item and a lot more sturdy than I was expecting especially at this price. Easy to erect and fold away, look no further if your after a reasonable priced work stand for the home work shop.
Fantastic easy to use stand that makes working on your bike nice and easy, well made and folds up and down in seconds. I recommend this product :)
I'm sure that many of you will be wondering how you can justify buying a workstand ... even at this price it is a lot of money. I was also in this position and spent a year or so getting to the pint of buying one.
I WISH I had bought it a year ago. Even for a relatively minor level of work on a bike it transforms the process and effort.
This particular stand is great. Much more substantial and robust than I was expecting. Easily and fully adjustable. Completely planted. It is a joy to use and as ever the Merlin delivery was fast and pain free.
If you've been wondering for a long time, stop wondering and buy it. You will not regret it.
Fantastice piece of kit. It looks like it should cost double what it does. The lightweight tubing makes for easily moved product without sacrificing ridgity. Even took the inlaws 30 year old 5 speed racer in its stride.
Buying this felt an extravagance, but it is a beautiful piece of kit and well worth the outlay. Life is so much easier!
I finally decided to go with this bike stand as the reviews were positive. I was not disappointed, the bike stand works well. I used it to work on my daughter bike that had a problem with the gears. I was able to make all the needed adjustments that needed the pedals turning and gears changed multiple times without problem. The stand was stable the whole time and could be packed up and put away easily. You will need something though the keep the front wheel and handlebars stable.
The workstand is an impressive tool. It is being very stable and allows easy access to work on the bike. Great price, very pleased with stand.
Great stand - robust and versatile. Good value for money and makes cleaning and servicing my bike much easier.
Easy and quick to set up. Can`t believe ive spent so long working on my bike without it!
Excellent piece of kit, particularly for the price.
Makes life so much easier even for the regular bike washing and chain maintenance jobs. Wouldn't be without it and can highly recommend it.
Comes assembled so virtually ready to use out of the box.
Good quality stand makes working on the bike easier.
Excellent product, holds my 29er no problem and folds down small enough to store easily.
This has proven to a very safe, sturdy, stable and cost effective work stand for occasional servicing work on my bike. It certainly beats trying to balance a bike frame on a workbench with clamps and a lot of hope. It folds up very neatly for stowing when not in use. Highly recommended.
Excellent, lightweight but robust easy to use
Very pleased with this workstand. Very easy to assemble and holds my bike exactly as I need it. Unbeatable at this price
I bought this after reading countless reviews, I needed a workstand to rebuild a 1980s road bike, the stand is very quick to set up and more sturdy than I expected it to be.
The cost of the stand was probably less than it would have cost me to have the bike rebuilt at my local shop, I`m 61 and should have bought one years ago, it makes a change to work on a bike without it sliding down the garage wall.
First Impressions? Saw a RALEIGH labelled box and thought this may not be up to much. Glad to say this I was completely wrong! This is one very substantial. Heavily constructed, yet not heavy piece of equipment which can be easily folded and quickly set up. Robust quick release clamps and 360 degree head make it really versatile and easy to hold even awkward shaped carbon bikes. Very stable and thoroughly recommended. A sound investment. You don't realize how much you can do and improve on your bike until you get a (great) stand like this!
Awesome. Cheap, stable, reliable and foldable, what do you want more?.
Used on 4 different MTB and 1 DH, it holds them well, the frames don't move even doing the works that need a lot of force (BB).
The only problem is the handlebar that is free and may move too much, but a rope or rubberband and that solved too.
Great work stand makes maintenance and cleaning so much easier. Very sturdy and simple to use. Height adjustable. Folds down to make storage easy. Great price from merlin and the usual quick postage.
What a brilliant piece of kit for the money and for those that want to try a bit of home bike maintenance its a must have at this price, great Merlin delivery service I ordered this on Thursday morning got it on the Friday..
I wasn't expecting anything special with this stand due to the bargain price - but I was extremely impressed when it arrived. It is a very sturdy construction, with quick release levers at all the adjustment points, and folds away neatly in the cupboard when you've used it. More importantly, it has a meshed tooth head rotation lock, which sets it apart from the other units, that use just a clamp to stop the head spinning.
All in all very impressed!
I have been using merlin for in excess of 10 years and due to the quality of service and the exceptionally competitive prices Merlin are certainly one of my preferred suppliers.
In terms of this product, I had used one of these stands recently and decided I needed one myself.
The stand is exceptionally well constructed, the adjustments and tightening fixings are precise and true.
In terms of price, I had been tracking this stand - sold with a number of brand names including Raleigh, for a number of months. Merlin's 'standard' price was far lower than any other retailers price
The product came fully assembled; I was expecting a small amount of assembly.
The main tubes are well finished and the plastic parts seem to be made from a hard, robust plastic.
The stand is assembled using quick releases which takes a matter of seconds and the angle and width of the clamp jaws can be set-up very quickly.
I wouldn't expect it to last too long in workshop environment, but for home use it should last well.
The stand feels stable enough for general use, while not being too unwieldy.
No complaints at this price!
I have used this stand for many years now running maintenance classes and it is great value and works well
This is a top quality stand. Construction is very good and robust. Life is so much easier using this rather than trying to hold one end up and work on the bike. Makes cleaning the bike easier as you can get to all parts. As normal delivery and price from Merlin was excellent. Get this stand from Merlin.
Summing up, really quickly, was probably the last item bought as a service tool for my bike... I had a garage/house fire a few months ago and this was top of the replacement list... Best workstand out there for the price and Merlins speedy shipping too. Bestest thing.... sorting out your gears in the lounge and not going up an down the road not having a scooby which way you are winding the screw... you can see what you are doing wrong first hand... go on, buy one, you won`t regret it
Very good bike stand, and will save me having to balance my bike on stools in future, a bargain at this price!
Excellent piece of kit. Takes my road or my mountain bike with ease. As good as the ones I have seen in workshops.
Hi I recently bought the bike tool work stand. I was more than impressed with the quality of the product and the price then to have a extra 10% taken off at check out for buying on line well let say there was smiles all round. Cheers daz.
After using all sorts of weird and wonderful ways of supporting the bike while I work on it I finally coughed up for this stand. Wish I'd bought one years ago and this stand exceeded my expectations. At the price I thought it might be a bit cheap so I very nearly went for a more expensive one but the truth is this stand is incredible for the price.
Great piece of kit, that makes cleaning and servicing your bike a doddle. Inspired me to take on jobs on my bike I previously wouldn't have. Usual excellent Merlin Cycles price and delivery. Recommended.
Stand is very stable and has made home maintenance on my bike very easy.
Excellent quality bike stand for the price. The legs and main body are very sturdy and well put together. The cam / clamp is mainly plastic construction, so doesn't close quite as efficiently or securely as you'd like - but then you only get metal clamps on stands costing more
I've been tinkering with bikes for over 50 yrs and this is my first workstand - should have gotten one years ago! This is a truly well designed bit of kit at a fantastic price - the same item under different names is available on other sites for almost twice as much. I particularly appreciate the quick release levers on all adjustable parts i.e. legs, column, and vice, the latter also having an articulated upper jaw, enabling it to fit any kind of tube shape.
Further purchase of a handlebar stabiliser advised.
Great product, great service. Very easy to use and very stable.
Excellent stand for the money. Crops up under a number of different brands for varying prices but this is the cheapest I've seen yet.
Sturdy enough for most jobs, folds up nicely and makes working on the bike much less arduous.
Would recommend to anyone who does their own spannering!
I brought this bike stand for our house of students to use with several types of bikes (fixed gears/single speeds/racing/mtb/commuter. Works well with all of these bikes and the super solid stand means you're never worried about it tipping over. Also, the single handed clamping system makes it much easier to mount bikes - I can imagine how much of a faff it would be without this really useful addition.
