Park Tool Team Issue Work Stand | GMBN Tech Unboxing

A good bike work stand is an important part of any workshop. It can hold your mountain bike securely in place whilst you perform bicycle maintenance and basic work. In this unboxing, Doddy takes a look at the Park Tool portable work stand favoured by mechanics across the world.

In association with Park Tool.

Here’s the link to the Park Tool promotion:

GMBN Christmas Gift Shop:

The Park Tool PRS-25 Team Issue repair stand is made of sturdy yet lightweight aluminium, with a robust construction that has a max load capacity of 45 kilograms. That’s almost twice the weight of most e-bikes meaning that it can easily cope with every mountain bike.
An essential part of every work stand is a soft but secure clamp. The Park Tool Team Issue repair stand has the pro edition micro-adjustable set of jaws, which will hold your bike secure without scratching the paint.
The stand also has mounting features for a convenient tool tray, a paper towel rack and the ability to mount a wheel truing stand.

  1. Nice stand!

  2. DOODIE is the best tech mtb reviwer!!!

  3. My bike stands so bad that it drops my bike occasionally! its like ten years old

  4. Never thought i would need one of these work stands but with my e-mtb you cant properly clean and lube the chain because it doesn’t spin backwards. Then I bought the PCS-10 and it is so useful for cleaning and all types of maintenance. Great investment which properly lasts a lifetime.

  5. Bleeding brakes is much easier with a stand not to mention running internal cables.

    Yes sir. I m gonna sell my organs and then you can take my money!

  7. Man I really wish I was 18. Well better start saving instead.

  8. I would fix my bike and the bike of my father

  9. omg I need it badly

  10. Call me a big creep but this was brilliantly presented and really pushed the benefits of these particular parktools. I use a cheap stand I got off ebay and with my Kona Stuff attached the heavy front shocks causes the plastic bracket to twist slightly and so the front shocks dip on the right. It’s fine for rigid frames and forks bikes but not really ideal. They claim a weight capacity twice that of my Kona Stuff but it copes badly when the weight isn’t centered and the bike is heavy.

    Short like Blake… Doddy 😁

  12. Dude, Smell my Helmet March 12, 2021 @ 10:32 pm

    I dont get why the bottle opener on multi tools is a good idea. Seems like a waste of space and its extra weight, since you can open a bottle with just about anything. Nice multitool though. Just sayin

  13. omg i need it so bad

  14. Graham Storr Stozzy66 March 12, 2021 @ 10:37 pm

    nice when you don’t have to buy it ye self,and get it given

  15. Yorkshire Grom Squad March 12, 2021 @ 10:37 pm

    Should have gone into marketing doddy you’d be a bloody millionaire by now lad!

    I recently upgraded from a 125 to a 160mm crankbrothers dropper Post.
    Before I could use the clamp on my bike on the fixed part of the dropper.
    But now that part doesn’t come out of the frame enough.
    Almost any (including CB) manufacturer of dropper seatposts advice against clamping on the top part of the dropper, yet I see everyone including you guys still clamp on that part.
    Why do manufacturers recommend not to clamp on the top part, and what are the odds of breaking or damaging the dropper post when clamping on the top part?
    I have a carbon bike, so I’m quite reluctant to clamp the bike on the top tube.

    Thanks in advance!

  17. Oh man! These competitions keep getting better and better 😁😁

  18. What would you fix with this?

  19. Thanks for the chance to win this Doddy. My old repair stand is bad enough that it almost needs it’s own stand…you should give away a cardboard Calvin, you know for support in our home shops! Thanks again Doddy and have a great holiday!

  20. Nice to have 🔨

  21. Does it come with your very own Doddy?

  22. Can I have that tolls

    This is good stuff. You guys and Park Tool, phenomenal. Seeing these comments below, and being a diesel mechanic, good tools aren’t cheap and cheap tools aren’t good. Park Tool actually is a great tool for what you spend on them. Just pick up tools little by little. Sure, you can start with a cheap-o stand and tool set, but as you get better at fixing your bikes and those cheap tools get work and take a beating you can replace them with Park Tool. Between Doddy and Seth’s Bike Hacks I learned a lot. I was recently deployed to Kuwait and a lot of soldiers had bikes, but no mechanic to fix them. I advertised and fixed people’s bikes for free. It helped my fellow soldiers and contractors as well as helped me hone my skills. Slowly I’ll be replacing all the tools I bought on deployment with Park because the quality and feel are the best.

    The park tools stuff is amazing and is super well thought out, but there are cheaper bike stands which get the job done. Maybe won’t last as long but work well for the home mechanic. Got mine at Lidl for like 30 eur. So to the people complaining about the price of Park tools stuff…get something else that fits your budget. Learning how to work on your bike will save you loads of money…

  25. Arciepet Ramizo March 12, 2021 @ 10:48 pm

    Love the tools

  26. Got my PRS-25 about a month ago and I want to get rid of it as soon as possible. I found that stand quite unstable and tippy and I won’t clamp my CANYON SLX onto this wobbly piece of crap anymore. Expensive mistake on my part. There are better ones around, and cheaper.

  27. Why the heck everyone loves park tool? if you don’t own park tool .. you can’t you fix your bike? there so many other brands like Birzman,Pedros , Unior ,IceToolz, Bikehand etc ….
    Unior make such a quality tools!

  28. Why do I get so excited by tools since I turned 30? Is it just me?

  29. Wanted to buy it yesterday at Chainreaktioncycles… Sold out. I assume that after this episode won’t get better. 😉

  30. BikeBee BeeBike March 12, 2021 @ 10:57 pm

    Cool, i want it, i need it. No more bending over the bike while working on it or turning it upside-down while placing rags underneath the handlebar and seat so i dont damage something 🙂

  31. Runs with Bigfoot March 12, 2021 @ 10:58 pm

    Great giveaway ,

  32. cool stuff, I look forward to never being able to afford it. 😔

  33. Man, I could really use this to work on my bike in the back’s kinda crowded in there, this would help a bunch.

  34. Is Blake really that small lol??

  35. ////////////////////////////// March 12, 2021 @ 11:02 pm

  36. EMTB RIDES NETHERLANDS March 12, 2021 @ 11:02 pm

  37. I’d love to have park tools but i can’t afford it

  38. good luck everyone

  39. Loving the Blake roasts 😂

  40. Spiros Melikokis March 12, 2021 @ 11:04 pm

    This stand will really come in handy!!!

  41. 🚴🚴🚴

  42. Harry the dirty dog March 12, 2021 @ 11:11 pm

    #askGMBNtech I have an 07 kona stinky it has an optional d.o.p.e system just wondering if you could let me know how it works and if it would be worthwhile putting it on (not a weight weenie) cheers

  43. Michael Broughton March 12, 2021 @ 11:12 pm

    Looks like a really nice stand. A bit out of my price range, though. Maybe if it goes on sale I could afford one.

  44. Only a wealthy man affords chep tools, so Parktool are OK. You buy one and you use it for many years.

  45. edmund blackadder coc March 12, 2021 @ 11:13 pm

    Worth more than me bike, i’d fix my car with it😂

  46. I’m learning to be a mechanic … that would help a lot GMBN, I hope I’m lucky 🙏🏻 this month is my birthday 😁 it would be a great gift # GMBN😁

  47. Geth Plays Ukulele March 12, 2021 @ 11:15 pm

    Stunning, I’m currently rebuilding my bike after bending the derailleur hanger out of shape and currently using a Stanley hobby vice clamped to the top tube. It’s not ideal although it gets me by.

  48. Can I wear the apron without my clothes on?

  49. Omg I’ve needed a workstand for years😂 great giveaway!!

  50. Mxrider2stroke Braaap March 12, 2021 @ 11:17 pm
