Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand Review

We just received a very cool cycling work stand called the Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand.  YES, we even got in the Pro-Elite, but more on that in another review.

Unboxing

Feedback Sports Pro Elite and Sprint

The Feedback Sports Sprint arrived almost completely assembled with the exception of the quick release skewer.   Once you add the QR skewer you’re up and running and can start working on your bike.

REVIEW

Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand Review

The Feedback Sports Sprint Work Stand is a professional level bike work stand for those who prefer the stability of a traditional fork mount.  The Sprint is considered a fork mount stand, meaning the front wheel of a bike needs to be removed in order to work on it.  Once the front wheel is removed, a bike’s fork can be mounted to the Sprint stand’s front fork mount.   The rear of the bike rests on the Sprint’s bottom bracket pad that has dual rubber-covered metal BB support.

The Sprint Work Stand is mostly made from metal (aluminum) with a few rubber parts.  The quality is top notch.

Racing teams like Trek-Segafredo and Lotto Soudal are using the Sprint as their goto work stand.

The Sprint uses 3 legs for stability and are folded out by sliding the 3 legs downwards.  The Sprint stand contains 4 quick release (QR) clamps including

  • Leg Adjustment Clamp – The legs can be locked into position using the Legs QR clamp
  • Telescoping Collar Clamp – Height adjustment can be made by pulling up on the stand.
  • Slider Adjustment Clamp – The Slider can be locked out by using the QR slider locking clamp.
  • Spinner Adjustment Clamp / Pivot Lock – the work stand and be set to pivot 360 degrees or locked out.

Work Height is between 30″ – 48″.  Folded Size  is around 5″ x 7.5″ x 30″ (12.7cm x 19cm x 76cm)

Bottom Line

I have to say we were pretty impressed with the overall quality of the Feedback Sports Sprint.  For what you get the retail cost of $269 seemed very reasonable.

What I found really useful is the ability to spin the bike 360 degree, giving you complete access to all the bike parts without having to walk around the work stand.  I haven’t tried this yet, but Feedback Sport says the stand is also designed for those who want to wash their bikes.  There are water channels holes designed to let water to flow out, should you decide to wash to your bike while it’s on the stand.

I did find 2 issues with the Sprint Work Stand that I think I should mention.

  • Beam Lockout: When setting up the Sprint it can be a bit difficult to initially lock out the beam with the slot screw.  You have to press really hard and up on the QR beam lockout clamp as it doesn’t always catch.
  • No Beam Locking for Transport: As far as I can tell there appears to be no way to lock the beam during transport and keep it from sliding or bouncing against the main frame.  I suppose a transport bag or velcro strap might fix the issue.
