    Default Park Tool PCS-10 vs PRS-25

    So the crappy, poxy heap of shit that is my Aldi bike stand is pissing me right off, so I'm going to buy a nice, solid, well made, reliable, functional workstand.
    I've been promising myself that I'm going to buy a Park Tool one when my time has come, so it has, so I'm buying one.

    Ive gotten it narrowed down to these 2,

    PCS-10

    PRS-25

    Anyone used/have/played with both?

    25 is about $100 more expensive (so about 25% more) but looks to have a nicer, better finished head and clamping arrangement. First hand experience would be great tho.

    No first hand with those two ones sorry. But geez the fold into a neat package. My Park stand has two feet that fold in but that's all.

    Yeah they look to fold down pretty small, but I don't really need this.

    It's for a more permanent set up in my workshop/garage.

    Can you still buy just the clamp part? one of the LBS' here has them on some 100x100 post that comes down from the ceiling. I am sure there is a good reason for this.

    As far as I am aware, the difference is more about size / weight and ease of transport in regards to the PRS-25.

    If your going to leave it setup in the home workshop, just save the $$ and go the PCS-10 (193aud from hibike + del).

    The PCS-10 is a great stand, holds the DH bike at all sorts of off angles.

    Agree completely, there is no evidence!

    Yep, you sure can.
    Top Mount would be for clearance to work around the BB area I would think. Much easier to do that.
    I rent..... therefore need something I can bring with me.

    + those wall/table mount are nearly as expensive!!!
