WHAT WE LEARNED:

Step 1: Remove from carrying bag and set up

Remove stand, spread stand legs apart and position on ground. Attach the bike micro-adjust clamp that comes with the stand.Be sure the mouth of the clamp and clamping area on bike are clean. Some will wrap a clean, soft cloth or rag around the frame before clamping.

Step 2: Lift bike to clamp

For a bicycle with a carbon fiber frame, generally it’s best to clamp the seat post. Steel and aluminum bikes can also be clamped on a frame tube. For questions about the best clamping position, contact the bike manufacturer or retailer.

Step 3: Tighten clamp

Turn or flip the latch depending on how it is set. Turn the cam handle knob counterclockwise until jaws accommodate frame tube or seat post. Turn cam handle knob clockwise to close jaws on tube. Adjust final clamping pressure using cam handle.

Step 4: Secure the Bike

The bike will sit securely in the stand. Basic tools such as a pedal wrench, chain tool and Park Tool portable Essential Tool kit are suitable for most repairs. The clamp of the repair stand rotates 360 degrees. Always remove the bike before adjusting the stand’s work height.
