Park ToolHome Mechanic Repair Stand - PCS-9


You can work on any frame design out there with the Park PCS-9 repair stand. Between its 360-degree rotating head and its screw-down clamp, there’s always a frame tube or seatpost to clamp to. And, with the height adjustment, it doesn’t matter how tall you are or what part of the bike you’re wrenching on, it will always be a comfortable, if not simple, adjustment.

holds and heavy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Bike Stand is extremely heavy duty. Its big. And it’s bad. Not to be used as a travel shop tool, it is a stationary garage mechanic stand. Solid and durable. This stand is great design and will probably last literally forever.

Good Starter Stand

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Works perfectly for me. Do basic bike maintenance with it and it holds the bike up securely. Very simple and easy to use as well.

Entry to stands

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

Used once so far to tune the cx bike. Least expensive on the site. You will need an Allen to break it down all the way but if you have a bike chances you have Allen wrenches. Stable enough for me. If you plan on wrenching professionally I can see how the spring loaded pin at base might give out


    The spring-loaded button at the base that is intended to keep the riser bar from spinning isn't strong enough. As a result, you can't apply much rotational pressure without it slipping. It's just not stable enough.

    Gets the Job Done

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am not a huge bike mechanic, but I do like getting my hands dirty to try and fix or install something myself before asking someone else to. This is a great stand all around. It isn't the lightest, but it is a solid stand once set up and can adjust to multiple positions to get the perfect angle needed. I would say my only complaint I'd have is the size it folds down to. It definitely folds up nicely and itsn't too too big when folded, but comparatively to others on the market, it is a bit on the big side and tends to easily slide back into standing position, making storing it a bit of a nuisance.

    Feel free to hit me up directly with any questions on this stand or anything else on the site.

    Gets the Job Done

    Overall good stand

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This stand was exactly what I was looking for, a reliable stand that could easily be folded up and stowed away. I really have no complaints except that the button where the legs snap on has somewhat quit working. I can manually force the button through solving the problem but it can be a little bit of a hassle. However overall I love having this stand around, it makes working on your bike fun and convenient.

    Great Stand.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This was super easy to set up out of the box. took me about 10-15 minutes. The stand works great and easy to adjust to the height you want. For the price and they quality i would highly recommend it.

    Perfect for repairs

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

    This is a great bike stand, it attaches at the seat post and is very stable so you can adjust any part of your bicycle. I really enjoy how solid the clamp for the seat post is. It can lock onto a range of sizes and holds very well. I'd recommend this to any biker who likes to do their own maintenance and adjustments. Overall this is a great addition to any mechanics tool box.

    Pretty nice stand

      I'm happy with this stand and it definitely gets the job done. It bows a bit with a heavy bike, but sturdy enough for standard maintenance. Clamp is secure and easy to use and adjust.

      At-home maintenance

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

      I bought this stand as a gift for my boyfriend to use for basic at-home maintenance and cleaning, and he loves it, and my brother has had one for a few years and loves his as well. I've seen it used for both road bikes and for mountain bikes, and for the price, it's really solid and so much better than spending a few hours hunched over a frame and trying to hold it up at the same time. Park Tool makes really dependable stuff, and this is another budget-friendly win from the brand that makes quick fixes at home a lot more enjoyable.

      It works

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This stand it a bit flimsy and bows under the weight of a mountain bike. It also does not pack up particularly well and the main bar slides around when it is collapsed. It gets the job done (and is sooo much better than not having a stand), but is rather unremarkable.

      Great Bike repair stand

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

      This stand is very easy to put together and holds your bike very secure. its easy to adjust the height and sturdy enough work work or wash your bike. For the price you cant go wrong.

      great and simple

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

      Not 5 stars because I've used other, better stands. This however is great if you're on a budget and have limited space. It will allow you to work on mt bikes or rd bikes without any issue.

      Great stand for the money

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Amazing stand for the money, I love that it packs up fairly nicely and I can throw it in the car and take it to the trails, and bike park with me. Holds all of my different bikes from DH to XC to my DJ. Love it!

      Great basic repair stand

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

      This stand is very easy to put together and it only took 5-10 minutes. It seems pretty durable so far and it holds both my mountain and road bikes perfectly. It is a basic stand so your bike is pretty much fixed at one height with not a lot of adjustments.

      Perfectly adequate.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This works great for simple repairs and cleaning at home. So much better than trying to lean your bike up against a fence or something especially when working on the drive train. Awesome price point for a solid entry level stand from a reputable company.


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

      Pretty easy to put together since there's only six pieces. It can hold my 25 pound bike in any position you please. I've already done some slight derailleur adjustments with it and having this stand, or any, makes working on bikes so much easier. For the price I can't find anything better than this out there. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a entry level stand. As far as I'm concerned I don't see why you would spend more when this gets the job done for less.


      BASIC Repair Stand

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I was very happy to see a more affordable option for bike stands and I have been happy with other Park Tool products I have purchased. The material is strong and sturdy while the overall assembly is pretty basic. I think the clamp is perfect as it is very easy to rotate from a horizontal to vertical position and anywhere in between while also controlling how tight you close it down on your seat post or bike tube.

      Now for the 2 stars. The base of the unit where the leg assembly slides down and locks with the push button does not work properly. Once the stand is holding weight, any force applied by myself on the bike will cause the leg assembly to unlock the push button by sliding right over the top of it and the legs begin to slide up the vertical tube of the stand.

      I may try to file the small hole opening where the push button should be locking because it seems to taper open on the inside of the hole allowing the button to easily be pushed in. I am hoping this fixes it, otherwise the stand is almost unusable.

      Exactly What I was Looking For

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The PCS-9 is perfect for the home mechanic - it's easily adjustable and sturdy enough to not move around when you're torquing down a crankset.

      I was able to find the sweet spot with the tightness of the rotating clamp and the pinch bolts of the telescoping pole, and now I can rotate the bike on two axis while it's in the stand, without becoming cumbersome or moving when I don't want it to. Raising and lowering the stand height is difficult, though.

      Even as someone who used to work in a bike shop with Park Tool's Professional bike stands that weigh nearly 100lbs and cost about $400, I'm perfectly satisfied with the PCS-9.

      Looking for a stand, why is this so much...

      Looking for a stand, why is this so much cheaper than the rest?

      Are the others any better or different?

      I just need it for cleaning, and little repairs, and wheel set swaps, minor stuff...

      Best Answer

      Stands will vary on price depending on how heavy duty they are. A lesser expensive stand will be a little thinner tubing, and also not quite as stable for really cranking down on the bike. For most home work projects a stand like this is sufficient and will work well. Feedback also makes a comparable stand at the same price.
