I feel the same way. My roommate in college had the feedback and it was great for road bikes but I couldn't imagine using one exclusively for DH bikes. I've seen at least 15 DH bikes fall over while in Feedback stands.

Ive broken two clamps on this stand. Happens when you work on the bike in an unnatural position like pulling the back wheel up so the bike is vertical. Lucky Performance has a "100% Satisfaction Guarantee..." I've had the stand replaced two times over the last 5 years.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
Def a winner - I may go back to Park someday; I have a FeedBack Ultimate Pro Titanium 11.0 and it's awesome, but you need to be wary of bike position depending on what you're doing. The park bases sort of preload the weight, and may wobble, but I never flipped my PRS-5 at all, and my FB is a tip monster.

Look at the Sette model offered thru Pricepoint it's just a sturdy as a Park and 1/3 the price, I have one and have used it for my Haro 357, it's sturdy. I also have the Feedback Pro model and like that one also.

Tripod of the Feedback is plenty stable as long as you remember to face the 'fork' of the Y toward you with the third leg pointing straight away from you. If you've ever milked a cow you know this.

I've had a similar one to this.. http://www.parktool.com/product/delu...-stand-pcs-4-1
the legs have changed over the years. It has lasted 15 years and has seen everything (in terms of DH bikes) thrown at it from a '97 GT LTS DH to a current Demo 8 and probably about 7 other personal DH bikes between the 2. Never had an issue...one of the best purchases I've ever made.
