How much weight can the stand hold?
The plastic yellow tube holders are borrowed from the concrete industry. Push the aluminum uprights fully to the bottom of these clamps for full engagement and your repair stand can firmly support up to a 40 lb trike.
Not good! The Yellow plastic holder ripped apart on the first time using it. Not worth the time or price.
We are so sorry, to hear of the plastic part failure, and of your negative experience with the trike stand kit. It would be our pleasure to send along replacement parts while we work to fix the issue. We will contact you via email this afternoon. Thank you.
I like the stand assembly was easy .it will do the job I will be creating braces.It wiggles under the weight of the trike. I wish the mounts for the tubes were metal.the plastic will fail over time its thin.
Thank you, we're glad you like your stand and assembly went well! For increased stiffness you can add some additional screws once your final position is decided. If you do experience a failure please let us know and we'll be happy to help.
I was very pleased with the delivery and the quality. The quality of th components is first class and they assemble easily. I made my work stand to fit in my Black and Decker Workmate and hold our Catrike 559s and it can be seen at the at the Carriage House Cycleworks Facebook page. I am very pleased.
Mark, thank you! Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021 and good luck with the off-season trike maintenance.
Assembling the stand was straight forward. Carriage House Cycleworks was helpful with the placement of the back support point on my Catrike 559. I mounted my stand on a wooden sawhorse from Lowe's and its super stable. Overall, good customer service and once the order was placed the package arrived quickly.
Thank you, David. We're so happy you are up and running with your trike workstand!
2x4 should be straight not warped. Cross supports; make long enough to accommodate plastic support brackets for the width of your particular trike. Watch for clearance of steering arms when positioning rubber cradles. Instructions are vague, however if you are all thumbs at assembly, then buy the trike stand already made. If you are handy, this bracket kit is just the ticket.
Thank you for feedback we agree, this kit is certainly geared toward the handy and do it yourself crew! One trick we use when selecting boards is to eye the board down it's length, checking for hook or twist, or placing the board on the ground and looking for gaps or rocking. We're so happy that you and your GT5 made it work.
