A last-minute Father's Day gift both you and Dad can stand: Topeak's PrepStand(TM) Pro

June 07, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
For a last-minute Father's Day gift for the cycling dad who demands peak performance from his road or off-road bike and the do-it-yourself pop who'd rather tune the family bikes himself, Topeak's PrepStand Pro makes a grand addition to his "playroom."

With the 2007 PrepStand Pro, Dad has a pro-level stand like the bike repair shops with some neat extra features, like a built-in digital scale for weighing parts or complete bikes. With its stable tripod design, the PrepStand Pro can accommodate up to 55 pounds and folds down compactly and fits into a padded travel bag (included) so you can take it with you.

The non-marring rubber jaws rotate a full 360 degrees with the clamp opening ranging from 1.9 cm to 4-5cm and the clamp height spanning from 122 cm to 183 cm. The entire dimensions of the PrepStand Pro run 17.8 x 117 cm (fold) with a 135 cm base diameter.

"When it comes to father's day gifts, one universal truth remains a constant: Dads like to tinker and fix things and they like to do with the tools nobody else on the block has," said Chris Harvey of Topeak. "The PrepStand Pro gives your dad a bike-shop caliber stand to do both minor and major repairs and tune-ups and it's definitely a gift that will make his workshop the envy of the other neighborhood do-it-yourselfers."

Topeak also offers some complementary items to make it even more fun for Dad to use the PrepStand Pro. That includes an Upgrade Kit consisting of a scale tray for weighing small parts plus a hook for weighing wheels and other odd-shaped items; a Handlebar stabilizer to secure front wheel and handlebar while working on your bike; and a Tool Tray for tools, lubes, and small parts.
