Super performance from a featherweight; best for portability
Skip to view product specifications

This bottom bracket stand is in among the full-size stands in terms of price, so how does it compare? Well, if you’re going to be taking a stand on the road, there really is no comparison. It’s tiny, as light as a feather and stupidly simple to pack; you even get a bag thrown in.

Stick your bike on it and it’s very stable with a big footprint, and the bottom bracket seat held most bikes securely, though it did struggle a bit with a bulbous carbon offering, so it’s certainly best to try it out with your own steed. You’ll need to be careful with a high-end frame too, as the clamp acts on the thin walls of the down tube.

It’s adjustable for height, and will hold your bike higher than the other three on test here. There’s adjustable arms to hold the front wheel in place, and under- BB cables are free to move. If you’re pressed for space or need portability, look no further.
