One of the toughest parts of mountain biking is not necessarily the trail
on which it is ridden or the style the rider chooses. Keeping the bike in
superior condition and repair is essential to the success of any style of
mountain biking. Kick-stands are out of the question for repair work and
finding the right mountain bike stand with which to hold the bike for
work, should be something every cyclist needs to do. Finding the right
mountain bike stand may take some time, but there a few things to look
for when considering a purchase. Obviously, price will be a major
concern, but spending hundreds, and possibly thousands of dollars on a
quality mountain bike, anything left over in the budget should be applied
to a quality stand. A mountain bike stand should be freestanding, meaning
it can stand on its own, under the weight of the bike when attached,
without fear it will fall over, regardless of the terrain on which it is
used. Many riders carry a foldable mountain bike stand with them for
competition and when needed it can be quickly set up beside the car and
used to effect repairs. The stands with a tripod stand are the most
useful at remaining upright on tough ground.

Look for a mountain bike stand that has a single lever quick release
mechanism to hold the bike upright. Gone are the days when a bike was
turned upside down to make repairs. With the grip working similar to vice
grip pliers they should be easily adjustable to the size of the crossbar
and be able to support the weight of the bike. The grip should also have
a single, quick release mechanism to make removing the bike easy, no
matter how much it weighs. Ideally, the mountain bike stand will be
adjustable up and down to make working on the bike more convenient and
comfortable. The adjustment should be easy with a single release on a
telescoping pole to make moving the bike up and down easy for one person
to accomplish. The rider should not have to struggle or ask for help to
get the bike to a level at which work can be performed. While many
mountain bike stand prices are under $100, a quality stand can cost over
$300 and depending on the amount of work a person will do on their bike,
the higher priced, better quality mountain bike stand may be a better
bargain in the long run.
