MarkFantastic bit of kit, well worth the money.
peter KGreat service from Merlin as usual. Pleased with the workstand, sturdy, well made, just the job for "tinkering" and washing. A great price as well.
AlexisGreat quality workstand and very good customer service from Merlin Cycles. Fast and efficient delivery, thanks very much!
EwanExcellent product, very well built compared to other stands at a similar price.
Mr VanhinsberghGreat service with free postage and timed delivery slot . Bike stand good so far, not a Park but not the price. Nice and light to move around and still feels sturdy with a bike clamped on. Time will tell on durability.
Mr suttonFantastic product. Really sturdy and well made. Highly recommended
Ian LBought this after using a friend's one, which worked really well - very stable, easy to set up, and holds bike well with minimal fuss. Great price from Merlin Cycles, and speedy delivery. Very happy!
Mr BarnishA good solid piece of kit at an excellent price. For the home mechanic it's ideal. Easy to adjust, and folds up reasonably compactly as well. It's definitely improved my life.
Mrs HansenMy first bike stand, so I have nothing to compare with. But I feel that for the money, it's a fantastic thing. Quickreleases everywhere, so no tools needed to adjust any of the settings. It did seem like the head sags a bit when a quite heavy mountainbike is put in, but honestly... all things considered its the best tool I bought in a long time.
Mr KenyonExcellent piece of kit, easy to use, much more sturdy than I expected for the price. Great value -recommended.
BurtonA sturdy stand for home use. The stand is constructed of thick section alloy tubes and relies on QR clamps to hold in place when expanded. Nice and compact when folded. The head clamp is nylon or plastic but should last a long time with care. It's not a shop product but isn't priced like one either. Holds the bike steady and is easy to use once you get the hang of it. No bending over an upside down bike for me. Should have bought one years ago.
DanGreat workstand at a great price, a couple of my mates have these and theirs have lasted really well.
Mr WarkeThis is a excellent work stand by Raleigh. Solid design with easy movement to adjust. Simple engineering but effective design. Great price for a quality product.
Mr GladwellI really wasn't sure on which workstand to purchase and after reading many reviews... this stand was my purchase. It's great when you make the right choice! Very well made, loads of adjustment, stable and very easy to set up... looks and feels like it will last along time... recommend 100% and Great price and delivery from Merlin as always.
DemellweekPooleyExcellent service. Product is well made and does the job. This is the second one I have bought. The first for my son. So impressed I bought one for myself.
Mrs QuiggBought this for Christmas for my husband, and he is utterly delighted with it. He has assembled it & already used it to repair his bike and has commented on how sturdy it is & also the quality. One happy cyclist :-)
FortuñoThis is a very sturdy bike work stand that folds down to a compact size. It can be adjusted in height and angle to ensure the bike is positioned optimally for the repair or cleaning job at hand. Highly recommended!
OLBGreat delivery. Good robust product, appears to hold up a steel framed hybrid for cleaning on first use without creaking or feeling like it was going to break or fall.
Ben OThe bike stand does everything it should (much better than a more expensive stand I purchased previously). Really pleased with it, prompt delivery, would recommend.
MozzerVery pleasantly surprised how sturdy and substantial it was when I unpacked it. Used it once so far and very pleased, especially for the price
BrownHow did I manage without it. So easy to use. Holds everything at the right height to work on my bikes.
FISHERThis is my first workstand and having checked out many other ones including Park Tool stands, I doubt very much if any could be sturdier than this one. It's very adjustable and well built. Very happy with this workstand.
Mr Van Der HaagenWorks great and is stable! Have tried some workstands and this is one of the best
DavidSuperb value workstand, an absolute must have for bike maintenance.. I've been using an older version of this for 10 years and it's still going strong. Great service from Merlin shipping to Denmark in just 3 days.
Arthur BirdThis is the best piece of bike kit I have bought in a long time. A real game changer. Easy to use, light, portable and well constructed. Good value for money. Manages road mile and MTB equally well. Dispatched on time. Arrived as promised. No complaints at all. Thank you.
DuncanVery stable, folds up well, great value for money and far better than some more expensive alternatives. My one criticism is that the clamp lever is a bit fidgety, so you need to hold the bike up for a wee bit while you do it up. Keep this in mind if you struggle to left your bike with one hand.
Mr SullivanThis work stand is sturdy, well designed, easy to use and looks pretty dam good too. Overall great value for money at this price, v happy :)
StefanVery good value for money. Does a great job with a light road bike, but I am sure it could withstand heavier bikes. Setting it up and folding it is fairly easy with the quick release clamps. Perfect for most maintenance jobs.
GroupWow! That pretty much sums this product up, for the price the quality is off the scale................. looks this a stand four times the price, well chuffed to say the least, and backed up by great service from Merlin
SandyExcellent, very stable, easy to use, makes maintenance and cleaning a lot easier. Great price at Merlin.
Ms CampbellI've never used a bike stand before, so don't really know what the options are. This seems well made and decent for the price. It's not easy to adjust some aspects with the bike loaded on, however maybe you're not meant to! I think that's one aspect that much more expensive devices might deliver. However as a budget item I think this is very good.
Mr CarterThis is brilliant, super strong easy to use, light, well made, German instructions on the reverse of the paper work indicates quality German build? Really great bit of kit and at a really good price, as good if not better than Park tool of similar price. Would recommend.
Mr SmithThe stand is fairly substantial although not the most stable. This isn't really a problem for most jobs and for the price you really cannot complain. The clamp is well engineered, and the whole stand can be folded down for relatively easy storage. For this price I don't think you can go wrong really! Fantastic customer service from Merlin as usual.
rbGood, handy, lightweight, compact, convenient and stable work stand.
Mr HammermanI bought it due to the good reviews. I can't fault it, save your back and buy one.
J DillonTall, substantial stand. Does everything I need it to and at a good price.
Mr cramerI have been thinking about buying a bike stand for ages and with a little derailleur maintenance needed I thought now is the time. This stand is not only good looking but has excellent build quality and is dead easy to set up. All the fixings are solid and will ( hopefully) last for ages. The only minor issue I have is that the stand seems much more professional than my bike maintenance abilities!
OddoGood workstand given the price. The clamp feels a little bit fiddly and its locking mechanism probably won't last a decade, but otherwise sturdy. Something that I thought would be unnecessary but after using it seems quite useful is a tool tray. Too bad this stand hasn't got one.
Mr S BanceSo far very impressed. The stand wasn't too heavy and coped very well with my road bike and much heavier mountain bike. It is also extremely easy to fold away and store in a small place - top product!
Mr ZilioliPerfect tool to clean and do ordinary maintenance. Useful, strong, easy to use.
Mr SmithI've had the workstand for about a month now but have only just got round to using it. If you've never had a workstand then you should buy one - they make working on your bike a lot easier. This one is well made and robust, easy to set up and fold up and takes up very little room in the corner of the garage. It's well worth the money and recommended.
Mr brownBrilliant value and very well made, works fine for a diy mechanic and makes your life so much easier.
Johan VPerfect stand. Easy to set up, solid, stowed away easily in a corner of the garage. Good value for money
Mr TansleyThis bike stand is exceptional value for money. It has all the features needed to hold any bike and is sturdy. Would recommend to anyone at this price.
Mr Holmes1st stand I've owned but for me brilliant, easy to use and stable
Mr NobbsGood Quality, feels heavy and well built.
Terry KleemanRead the previous reviews and totally agree, very good product and good value, so much so just ordered two more for my sons!
Mr LuessenhopDidn't expect it to be this sturdy, even after reading all the glowing reviews. Would recommend
Matthew TwiggerGreat workstand at a great price. Just be sure to check the tightness of the QR levers when you first use! Can't see any reason to spend more.
PipReally impressed with this stand. I assumed that at the advertised cost it might be a bit low rent but the product is actually very sturdy and well made. I'm sure that more expensive stands may have more features but I honestly can't see why you would need anything more for home mechanic use than this.
TimMakes working on your bike so much easier than leaning it against a wall! Appears well built, sturdy and great value for money.
BradDWhen it comes to workstands, I thought that price had a reflection on quality. This is certainly not the case. This was the cheapest workstand that I could find with all my requirements. The construction seems more than able to handle anything that I can throw at it. It's light and folds up relatively small compared to other workstands that I have seen. It was well worth the money spent. It folds out and folds down in no time and all. It does look like the hard plastic sections of the clamp are straining a little at times but, as yet I've seen no signs of plastic fatigue. Overall a great product at a great price. I looked around for a capable and affordable workstand for a long time and Merlin Cycles had it!
Mr GregoryReally good stand for the price, sturdy and well made. Much better than balancing my bike against the bin to work on it! You would need to spend some serious money to get something substantially better than this.
Ms SmithA really nice piece of kit - sturdy and well made. Excellent value
GavinFolds relatively compact with no big sticky out pieces. Not had it long enough to comment on durability. Allows for quick removal of the bike for loosening tight fixings like the bottom bracket and quick installation to carry out maintenance. Bike pivots a bit in the clamp wich can irritate but this may be due to my worry about applying too much pressure to the tubing and causing damage. Can't comment on how it compares against the big names like Park.
Mr FältVery reasonable price for an excellent piece of equipment. Easy handling, and minimal space when stored.
Mr OliverI looked at a number of workstands before buying this one, finally deciding on it mainly because of the reviews and I have to say they were spot on. This is the best workstand I have come across, even compared to those costing three times as much. Sturdy and stable in use, fully adjustable for height and angles, good solid clamps and folds up to store away. This has got to be the best value workstand available today. Well done Merlin
Mr ParkesExcellent 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.
Mr WrightThis 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!
Chris WheelerI 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.
Mr KirkbyGreat 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 !
R ShawVery 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...
Mr TaylorFinally 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.
Mr DaveyLook 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!
Mr HooperA 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.
Mr MetcalfeFantastic 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 :)
Mr STINTONI'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.
Tim RiggottFantastice 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.
H PowellBuying this felt an extravagance, but it is a beautiful piece of kit and well worth the outlay. Life is so much easier!
Mr HarrisI 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.
Mr SchofieldThe 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.
Mr DGreat stand - robust and versatile. Good value for money and makes cleaning and servicing my bike much easier.
Mr HarrisEasy and quick to set up. Can`t believe ive spent so long working on my bike without it!
Mr McDonnellExcellent 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.
Mr AdamsComes assembled so virtually ready to use out of the box. Good quality stand makes working on the bike easier.
Mr ButterfieldExcellent product, holds my 29er no problem and folds down small enough to store easily.
Mr CoghlanThis 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.
Mr TillExcellent, lightweight but robust easy to use
Mr GarlandVery pleased with this workstand. Very easy to assemble and holds my bike exactly as I need it. Unbeatable at this price
Mr maunI 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.
DerekFirst 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!
MTB ITAAwesome. 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.
Mr DonaldsonGreat 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.
Mr HarlandWhat 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..
Mr RushtonI 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!
Mr MeikleI 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
Mr AllenThe 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!
Mr WoodsI have used this stand for many years now running maintenance classes and it is great value and works well
Mr BlakeThis 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.
Mr SmithSumming 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
GeeVery good bike stand, and will save me having to balance my bike on stools in future, a bargain at this price!
Mr BudimirExcellent piece of kit. Takes my road or my mountain bike with ease. As good as the ones I have seen in workshops.
Mr WalshHi 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.
MettlerAfter 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.
James WilkinsonGreat 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.
Mr SmithStand is very stable and has made home maintenance on my bike very easy.
Johannes FelterExcellent 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
Vic CobboldI'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.
Mr WilsonGreat product, great service. Very easy to use and very stable.
Mr JacksonExcellent 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!
KarlI 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.
