Feedback Sports – makers of the superb Pro Ultralight repair stand – have added a new Euro-style model to their line-up that’s similar to the models used by the best professional road mechanics. The new Sprint weighs in at just 5.9kg (13lb), it’s impressively stable and best of all, offers a more comprehensive feature set than is currently available.
The new Sprint supports the bike with a bottom bracket pad and a block clamping either the fork or rear dropouts. Feedback have engineered a range of adapters for the cast aluminum block (for standard 100/130/135mm quick-release axle, 15mm and 20mm front through-axle, and 135x12mm and 142x12mm rear through-axle, with others as needed) so just about anything should fit.

Unique to the Sprint is the level of adjustability. The fork/dropout base can slide and lock in place as needed on the aluminum extrusion with no tools required and the entire base can slide back and forth to maintain proper weight balance for stability. Work height can be easily adjusted from 762mm to 1,219mm (30 to 48in), with an additional quick-release collar atop the sturdy, large-footprint folding tripod base so that the bike can be easily spun around without affecting the setting.
When not in use, the Sprint quickly folds down into a compact shape and stores in an included carrying case. According to Feedback Sports owner Doug Hudson, it’ll cost US$275, with initial availability schedule for 1 June.
