What kind of bikes is the stand suitable for?

It is NOT SUITABLE for very heavy bikes such as electric bikes and many fat tyre bikes. Maximum load: 15 kg (33 lb).
It is NOT SUITABLE for bikes with oversize or irregular shape (non-round) chainstays.
Can I use the stand with disk brake bikes?
Normally, yes, but if the disc rotor touches the stand, reposition the bike on the stand and readjust the width of the chainstay mounts if necessary.
My bike has a kickstand; can I use the Easy Utility Stand?
It depends on where your kickstand is mounted. Some side stands that are mounted on the chainstay, may make it difficult to use the stand.
What is the maximum weight the stand can support?
15 kg (33 lb). Do not use with very heavy bikes such as electric bikes and many fat tyre bikes.
Can I sit on the bike when it is in the stand?
No, it is not designed for that, and you may damage the stand if you do.
Can I use the stand for any kind of bicycle maintenance job?
No, it is designed for simple, light maintenance work like adjusting the drive train or brakes, cleaning and lubricating parts. It may not be suitable for major bike maintenance work.
How do you adjust the height of the stand?
Adjust the stand height by increasing or decreasing the spread of stand legs (the rear wheel should not touch the ground and you should be able to turn the pedals).
How do you adjust the width of the stand?
The width is adjusted by loosening the bolt underneath each chainstay mount and sliding the mount to the desired position.
When my bike is in the stand it is difficult to change the rear gears?
If your rear derailleur cable runs under the chainstay, the stand's chainstay mount may compress the cable, hindering cable movement. To prevent this, you may be able to position the chainstay cable stop (the metal braze-on) on the chainstay mount to avoid compressing the cable.
Do I need to use the rubber holding rings?
Yes, they are necessary to hold the bike in place. Take care not to lose these.
I lost one of the rubber holding rings–what should I do?
If you do lose one or both, try your local hardware store for something similar to use as a replacement.

Use stand only on a flat, stable surface.
Stand is designed to support a bicycle only–do not sit on the bicycle while it is in the stand.
Beware of disk brake rotor, kickstand or pedals touching stand–reposition bike if necessary.
