Bike stands are an incredibly useful piece of kit and probably something you needs multiples of if you have more than one bike in your family. Sure you can lean your bike up against a wall but it’s generally not that stable and can scuff your shifters and bar tape – not to mention just falling over.
For the last few months I’ve been using a Feedback Sports Rakk bike stand and have been thoroughly impressed with it.
Firstly it takes a bunch of different wheel sizes no problems, it also works with disc braked bikes and caliper bikes. You can attach several of them together to store several bikes close together (making a more efficient use of space) and when you’re not using them – you can fold them flat for storage. The ability to fold flat also makes them useful for travelling with as they don’t take up a lot of room.
To use you simply roll your bike backwards into the stand and then wheel it forwards again to remove. It couldn’t be much easier.
It’s not a work stand but you can easily oil your chain before you ride using the Rakk.
There’s not a great deal more to add. It you want a well-made, highly versatile stand that can be put away when not used or connected together to store a bunch of bikes, the Feedback Sports Rakk should definitely go on your list. They’re not the cheapest of stands but they’re built to last and I have really valued the versatility. For me it’s a keeper and I’ll be adding more over time.
