PSA: Cheap workstand for your consideration
People are always recommending that BikeTools style stand, although I had a Minoura RS5000 which had the same legs and I thought it unstable.
I noticed this stand on Amazon which looks pretty sturdy and all the review comments seem to agree. There are others like it on Amazon for about the same money and they all get good comments about stability.
It has holes in the feet so could be bolted down.
I also notice that it comes with a bar to clamp the handlebars in position, something that you have to (and I have) pay extra for with the Park and Ultimate stands, and it has a tray with a magnetic strip:
There are a couple of comments about the clamps rotating under load.
This one is similar (same price as free shipping) but has a wind down clamp instead of quick release, so may be a better hold:
or this one has a quick release but it has a different arrangement of the top arm, which may or may not be better:
and here’s that one with a fixed base:
Here’s another varient:
Note that I cannot vouch for any of the stands, and have nothing to do with the seller(s). Whether or not they are a wise buy compared to this bargain Park one is another matter, as the Park one probably has less plastic:
