Repair stand
« on: May 14, 2021, 09:55:55 AM »
What are Rad owners using for a bike stand for repairs.My Radrover step through is probably to heavy for most stands,which are used on a standard bike.
Thanks for any help

I use the Park Tool PCS 10.2. It supports heavy bikes including electric bikes. I have a Rad Rover 5 and it supports it just fine. I can even turn the bike upside down while on the stand. Not real cheap but the quality is fantastic. The 10.2 is the latest version which addressed some of the earlier issues. This is what I would suggest for a heavy e-bike.

The PCS-10.2 Deluxe Home Mechanic Repair Stand was designed and built using our 50 years of experience creating professional shop stands used in shops around the world. The unique three-point leg system and stout adjustable uprights create an extremely solid platform capable of handling bikes up to 80 lbs. (36kg).

Just purchased this one and used it for putting a new gearbox on a RadRunner. When I get back south, I am looking forward to using it with my RadRover. Would have made replacing the rear tire a lot more pleasant. Also, I need to adjust the derailleur and was putting it off because I wasn't sure how to get it spinning free. This will make it easy.

I suspect that if you are going to have one for constant use, it might be better to have one that is a bit more heavy-duty. But I put the RadRunner up on it four times in the process of putting on my gearbox, and it worked great.

I've been using the Park Tool PRS-25 and have been happy with it (though it is expensive): https://amzn.to/3vq5M1F

For anything wheel/tire related the Handlebar Jacks are awesome and portable: https://ebikeescape.com/handlebar-jack-review-travel-bike-repair-stand/

It's actually easier to use the Handlebar Jacks when replacing tubes/tires since you have gravity working in your favor.

@Dan B---Thanks for the info. I purchased the stand, its massive but certainly supports my RR5 without any issue!
