Feedback Sports Scorpion MTB Stand

Repairs made easy.

Like most good ideas, the Scorpion MTB Stand is a relatively simple, straightforward tool that's sure to make your life a lot easier. This minimalist stand helps you perform simple repairs to your favorite mountain bike without taking up the space of a traditional bike stand. It attaches to the hollow spindle of your bike's crank arm, supporting your bike with the rear tire elevated off the ground. This makes gear adjustments and other maintenance work much easier. It's also super-light and portable enough for race day, weighing in at just four pounds. The Scorpion MTB Stand comes with an adaptor to fit most hollow cranks, such as Shimano, SRAM, Rotor/FSA, Specialized, Truvativ, and Cannondale. Moreover, it works with 26, 27.5, and 29-inch wheels for compatibility with your favorite XC, trail, and enduro bikes.

  • Works with 26, 27.5, 29-inch wheels
  • Comes with crank adaptor for use with hollow crank spindles

Tips For Assembly

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This Feedback Sports Scorpion MTB Stand is low profile, easy to travel with and great for small work spaces but it can be tricky to set up. It will come with two spacers, an eyebolt and the crank adaptor. It is very important to flare out the ends of the eyebolt in order to get enough friction to hold the adaptor together with your cranks (see picture below). Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about this Scorpion Stand.

Tips For Assembly

Solid Stand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this stand so that I didn't have to flip my bike upside down or lean it against anything while I was cleaning or doing light maintenance. With that, it has served it's purpose for sure. It also helps with storage if you have multiple bikes so that you do not have lean them against each other.

Unanswered Question

Would this stand hold a 60lb EBike?

Meh

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I like this stand but there are a few things I don't like about it as well. It gets the job done holding your bike up and allows you to complete some light maintenance on your steed if need be. When my stand arrived the paint was chipping off and there was no hardware to keep the plastic sleeves on the arm. There are two end caps, on the stand legs, that fall off everytime I move the stand. I had to put some tape, on the inside of the stand, to prevent them from falling out. Nice to have if I need to hold my bike up without leaning on the something in the garage but don't think I would purchase this again.

Great compact stand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love these. They tidy up my basement so it doesn't look like a bike hoarder lives there, and they also let you check and adjust shifting while the bike is on the stand as the rear wheel is elevated.

Awesome stand

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It is easy to carry so you have a bike stand at your races or events. The stand also allows you to do some maintenance on your drive train. I use it for my road bikes as well. Make sure you have a hollow crank spindle. I liked it so much I bought a second one.

Back for more--great for Plus + tires

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you've got a stable of bike that you want/need to keep on the ground, Feedback makes some great solutions. But the rear wheel rack models work well for regular road bikes, mountain bike tires (std...<2.6) and fatties (>3.7) for the fat rakk. But I've got a couple of plus bikes--that is 2.8" and 3.0" tires. They don't fit either rakk well but they play well with the the scorpion stand. As you have surmised, as the stand utilizes the crank rather than the wheel--its compatible with just about any modern mtb crankset. I''ve used turbines, aeffect and shimano 8000 so far with good results.

Excellent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking for a simple stand, look no further. As simple as selecting the correct fitment sleeve for your crank (multiple sleeves included), installing it on the stand in 15 seconds, and then standing your bike. Great for storage, cleaning, light maintenance, and avoiding laying your bike down. I would suggest this to anyone looking for a great way to keep your bike upright. Also, super stable, so no more worry of your bike falling over by leaning it against the wall.

The perfect stand for cleaning

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Love this stand , it matches my bike , the adaptor fits right in my cranks..
Not too sure where other people were coming up with it not fitting ...
The one issue I have with it is that the spacing is kinda close when running some flat pedals, like my raceface atlas .. I was looking at it and can cure the problem with a few smaller washers and a bigger washer by the adaptor to hold it further away from the end of stub and keep the bike from walking closer to the stand , free spinning pedals ... Solved... Like that it's welded steel , gonna try and find plugs of sorts for the foot of the stand , seems mine had some plastic plugs that were broken off and fell out , makes for a good place to hide the other two crank adaptor ..

Killer stand!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked a few of these up to help keep the garage a bit cleaner and not have bikes leaning on everything. I absolutely love how easy these are to use, and store. Also a great thing to toss in the car for roadtrips, as it will keep you bike in one spot and not up against the paint on the car.

Bike Leans on Stand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased two of the stands which were not straight. The bike would lean to a point where the bars would not stay straight. CC easily accepted the return.

Great addition for garage work/storage

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wife and I are blessed with a stable of bikes. Some are hanging from the ceiling and the ones we reach for often are in the feedback sports racks or leaned up against the wall. I was read to buy another feedback sports rack but decided to try this. Turned out to be a good move--works well just to keep a single bike upright (so no falling against the car or on the floor to potentially bash the derailleur/hanger). And its worked out well for bike washing, simple tuning/cleaning activities. And thanks for throwing in the free torque wrench (free with purchase promo when I bought).

Worth It

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

No more leaning the bike against...well, whatever you can find. I use this on the back patio for washing and light mx. Going w 4 stars because the fit is very tight on the crank of my 2015 Cannondale Trigger Carbon 29. Can't use any of the stand adapters on my factory stock SRAM, so it's just the crank right on the paint of the stand. It does work, but not ideal.

Great stand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great stand! Multi use; cleaning, maintenance, storage.

What, if any, is the difference between the Road and MTB Scorion stands?

They are different heights. The road stand sits lower.

Good bike stand is li Good bike stand

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Light weight simple and easy .I love it wish I had it years ago.

Super Stand

    Great stand , it can used to clean , mechanic and storage.

    I really wanted to like it...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Unfortunately I have Raceface Turbine Cinch cranks and this requires the smallest adapter, which doesn't allow the pin that secures the adapter to be used. My bike felt unstable, I definitely couldn't do work on it. Disappointed because I was really excited for a small stand to use in my apartment. I think this is a good design, just probably performs better with larger diameter adapters.

    Did you find another thru crank stand that is compatible with the Turbine Cinch?

    Nope, haven't managed to find one

    I also just installed a RaceFace Next SL G4 Crankset and found the default plastic adapter too large.. after removing that the bike was a bit unsteady as the horizontal part slopes down a bit. A quick fix for this was putting it in a vice and slowly bending the horizontal section upwards just a bit and now the bike is steady as ever. Great stand would buy again.

    Great Stand!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The best thing about this stand is that I can clean and lube the chain while it's 0n the stand.

    Too bad I got a defective one

      The pro version bike stand works nicely. I ordered a second non pro MTB stand. Unfortunately, I'm returning it because the one I received is not bent properly which makes the bike lean to the right.

      Adler, if we didn't get that replaced for you already, let me know and I'll ship it out asap.
