I used to have one of Park's old "team" issue stands that used a shop grade head. That was bomb-proof. Hoping for a similar experience I bought one of these newer ones. While the stand is compact for travel, the head is lacking. The threaded bolt that protrudes horizontally through the head is a pain and I have hit it on several frames loading bikes onto the stand. It also is a dirt and grease magnet which likes to transfer both to everything it touches. The only pro about this head is that it is has slightly narrower jaws than other stands allowing it to hold smaller bikes and those that have less seat post exposed such as suspension posts. Overall this is functional but I would choose one of the Park "shop" grade stands the next time because of the superiority of those heads.
