VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KETTLER USA has a new home bike repair stand in its inventory. The Profi Bike Repair Stand holds a bicycle still in an elevated position while repairs and adjustments are made. The bike repair stand has a new folding frame that stores conveniently when not in use.
"It makes working on a bike by yourself a little safer and a lot easier," said Stephen Mannix, vice president of KETTLER USA. "The Profi holds the frame steady and balanced so you can use two hands to work, whether it's a brake adjustment or you're simply replacing the chain."
The new KETTLER© Profi Bike Repair Stand has an adjustable height and clamp position that can be used for nearly any type of bicycle frame shape or size, from kids bikes to commuter bicycles. The new 360-degree Kettler Klamping System™ extends from 44 to 56 inches high for a more ergonomic work position and holds bikes up to 65 pounds. The Profi is sturdy enough for e-bikes and carbon fiber road bikes, holding frames from one to three inches in diameter. When repairs are complete, the stand folds up for compact storage at home or in the trunk of a car.
The stand has a chrome-plated yoke with a powder coated steel base. It offers a versatile removable tool tray with separate compartments for bicycle parts, tools and lubricants. The Profi Bike Repair Stand is now available for sale on the Kettler USA website (http://www.kettlerusa.com) for $269 and will be in select retail stores in mid-November.
