Rated 5 stars by most customers. Here are a few reviews:
Love it – I started out leaning my expensive new trek road bike against a workbench in the garage. Until it fell. Happily no damage, but I wanted a stand to prevent more accidents. Came across several do-it-yourself PVC pipe stands online. Tried one, didn’t like it at all. The RAAK and the Willworx both seem to get great reviews here. My local bike store uses the willworx and I didn’t like it much – they seemed to slide around easily, and are designed to accommodate wide mountain bike tires so road bikes tend to flop at a bit of an angle. You can buy foam spacers to improve the fit, but more expense and doesn’t look like a very elegant solution. I’m sure they must work well – if the bikes were falling over those stands would have been long gone from the LBS. But I decided to try the Raak. Glad I did. The horizontal channel has a narrow track that fits a road tire perfectly inside the wider one sized for a mountain bike. Similarly the guide roller on the vertical post has tracks for the different tire widths – it will fit just about anything without any adjustment. Finally, the vertical arm is spring-loaded, so it eases backward to accept your bike and gives a little push forward to assist when you pull it off the stand. Very nice piece of engineering and works very well.
Better than Topeak but does not fold up for travel – I have both the Topeak and this stand. I use both on a cement floor in the garage for adult and kids mountain bikes (20″ through 29″). Both work the same (great) but I actually think this stand is a bit more steady than the Topeak and for about 25% less than the Topeak it’s pretty much a no brainier if you are looking for a stand if this type.
Although the Topeak is a little more attractive – the only real advantage I see with the Topeak might be it’s folding arms. If you plan to store on a shelf in the off season or take with you on car trips etc.. It will take up much less space.
Nice and Simple Portable Stand – I wanted a stand for my garage so that I could stop leaning the road bike against everything and risk having it fall. I got this stand because it looked fairly simple to operate with no muss, no fuss. Happily, I can report that that is indeed the case. The stand requires no assembly; it is already altogether right out of the box. All you have to do is pop the spring arm up and you’re ready to go.
I also like that this stand doesn’t touch the spokes or rim in any way whatsoever. The tire just sits in the groove with the tire resting against the spring arm and that’s it. There are no screws, levers, straps, etc. to mess with. There are two grooves – one that fits road bike tires and a larger one for MTB tires. I didn’t notice it when I bought it (didn’t look at the pictures too closely I guess) but the stand does have the option of hooking up to another one just like it so that you can have multiple bikes standing side by side.
The other plus is that this Feedback Sports Bicycle Storage Stand is entirely portable if you’re driving somewhere to bike. It’s light enough to just throw in the car and take with you to wherever you’re going.
