Can't trust my bike to itJul 08, 2006
Simply put, I don't feel comfortable parking my road bike on this. I purchased this GrandStand to park my road bike properly in the garage rather than lean it against the wall. But after using it a couple of times I noticed the stand holds the bike in vertical position by the spokes. There is just too much lateral pressure on the spokes especially that the bike tends to go slightly to one side or the other and you can see the spokes temporarily bending by the weight of the bike. There is another thing that I've noticed, depending on the bike derailleur and what gear it's in, when parking the bike with the rear tire, the stand might get between the derailleur and the spokes, pushing the derailleur away from the tire. This might potentially harm the derailleur.
Not wanting to feel that I've wasted my purchased, I tried to use it with my cheap mountain bike, but quickly realized the heavy mountain bike would put even more pressure on the spokes than the road bike.

bike rests on spokes, not rim or tire...Oct 01, 2008
When you place your bicycle's tire in the stand it only rests the wheel against the spokes. It's not possible to see this in the photo displayed... basically, any place you set the tire, it's going to put pressure on the spokes to keep from falling over. Haven't continued to use it for fear of damaging my spokes.

Great portable storage for rides and rallies!Aug 31, 2005
By Oz Rider
We purchased 2 of these great little units from Gals Garage and can't figure out how we lived without them. Easy to assemble and we throw them in the back of our club chase van so we when we have a rest stop we aren't leaning our expensive bikes up against tree's, vehicles, benches or having to lay them on the ground. They work great in the garage as well!

Not a good choice for all size bikesFeb 01, 2010
By Robert Mallett
Product received was not as advertised. This bike stand is only good for bikes with 20" wheels or larger and doesn't state in description.

Works GreatSep 15, 2011
By David Newman
I think there is lots of speculation in reviews here by people who seem to have avoided actually using the product based on their initial impressions. I've got three. I use them on road and mountain bikes. I've had them for somewhere between 7 and 10 years, and I've been completely satisfied with them.
They were easy to assemble with just a screwdriver. They have proved to be plenty durable. They have not weakened or structurally damaged the spokes of my bikes so far as I can tell (though they may be responsible for removing some paint from a few spokes in one case, I can't be sure). They have not damaged the derailleurs of my bicycles so far as I can tell (I usually shift to a middle cog so the derailleur sits outboard from the stand, but even in those cases when I forgot, the stand simply pushes against the derailleur, pivoting it toward the front of the bike as if I had shifted to a bigger ring on the front).
My only complaint is that the edge of the stand appears to have removed some paint from the side of the flat, painted spokes on one set of wheels. For wheels without painted spokes, I don't think there's any problem. I think the stresses on my wheels are far greater when I am riding than any stress put on the wheels by these stands.
