Park PCS-9 vs. PCS-10 -worth the extra £50?

Posted on
  • About to order a bike repair stand from Ribble and trying to decide whether it's worth spending the extra fifty on the PCS-10 as opposed to -9

    Anyone used both and got any views?

  • Yes. The 10 doesn't wobble

  • with a bike workshop stand, spend as much as you can humanly afford, and then buy the next model up again.

    honestly, a shit wobbly bike stand will annoy you to the core everytime you attempt to use it.

  • Hmm, yes, have been using a friends PCS-11 lately (dont think they make those anymore) and was afraid that any significant downgrade would probably end up annoying me, been trying to get a used one on ebay, but they usually go for as much as new ones once you factor in shipping. can't believe people bidding not checking out online shop prices first

  • I thought the difference was the QRs as opposed to allen key adjustment?

    Got to say I wouldn't mind QR's on my PCS-9, but I'd still check the stats somewhere to see if there are other differences.

  • I think that's one of the main differences but the folding mechanism and tubes are also different

  • I have the 9, I quite like it and it was a gift, but I rarely use it as I have use of real ones sometimes.

    If you don't use it perhaps you'd like to sell it to me at a reasonable price? ;)

  • if it becomes a permenant feature of your workshop, bolt it to the floor or if only semi-permanant, put a 2x3' concrete paving slab on its legs, because then when you accidentally put a bike on the stand in a slightly dodgy manor it won't tip over and knock you out cold*

    *tru dat.

  • Soz Hoff, I use it rarely, but often enough to justify it staying.

  • pcs 10

    i have one and its been fine, stable enough to remove and install a bb, no problems with holding the MTB etc etc

    Good idea, unfortunately my workshop usually consists of dragging my tools and a couple of cans of Grolsch down to the parking lot from the fourth floor so this may prove tricky (especially on the way back up ;))

    Fair enough, it was worth a try
