I much prefer not to sit on my ass to build an entire bike thank you very much. If I gotta repair a flat or fix something while out riding different story but for home I don't think so. Fuck I didn't even work on my race bike unless it was on a work table.

I have the Park PCS-10 and love it! Use it all the time for cleaning and lubing the bike. If you don't want to clamp to the seat post you can always clamp to the frame. Also folds up nicely which makes it easy to pack away in the trunk for those multi-day getaway rides(used it in Brown County this year).

Tree Fort Bikes has a great deal on the PCS-10. http://www.treefortbikes.com/#navbar...22342081___276

I was starting to think I was the only one who didn't want to do that, I hate flipping my shit over. It scratches the shit out of the shifters and saddle...

I use the old shop grade arms (dont know the number), but I went to the Park site and saw the stand you posted. Looks pretty good to me and Calvin, the guy in the video is among the worlds best mechanics, he trained me to wrench bikes many years ago. If he stands behind it, then I do.

If I flipped my bike over it would crumble because it's made of lightweight carbon fiber. It must remain on it's wheels at all times. Plus I don't allow people to see her in such a vulnerable position.
