Selection Guide

The series “A” bike stand can accommodate MTB bikes or E-bikes up to 70 lbs. Select the correct model A1, A2 or A3 based on the actual size of your rear bike tire width and overall diameter (height) of your tire. The information on the side of your tire is the tire manufacturers noted size, but can vary up to +/- 0.25” or +/- 6mm. Verify the actual dimensions and use the "Model Selection Table" below;

MODEL TIRE WIDTH TIRE OVERALL DIA. (HT.)
UBS-A1 38mm - 70mm (1.5"-2.75") 665mm - 706mm (26"-27.8")
UBS-A2 70mm - 102mm (2.75"-4") 677mm - 780mm (26.65"-30.7")
UBS-A3 102mm - 134mm (4"-5.25") 677mm - 780mm (26.65"-30.7")

Special Notes:

  1. Minimum tire width for the model A2 can be converted to the model A1 by removing the spring spacer from each side (see exploded view below), this requires purchasing a set of A1 adjuster assemblies and swapping out the A2 assemblies.

  2. Minimum tire width for the model A3 can be converted to the model A2 or A1 by removing one spring spacer from each side will equal the A2 tire min/max width, or removing both spring spacers from each side will equal the A1 tire min/max width. This requires purchasing an additional set of A2 and/or a set of A1 adjuster assemblies and swapping out the standard adjuster assemblies.

  3. Warning! Adjusting the standard adjuster assemblies on models A1, A2 and A3 beyond the min. widths shown in the "Selection Table" above will cause the plastic tubing plug to fall out, exposing the sharp edge of the adjuster tube and may result in injury. Purchasing the correct additional adjuster assemblies for the intended tire width is important.

General Notes

  1. A minimum tire pressure of 5 psi must be maintained at all times during use.

  2. Load rating of UBS-A series bike stand is 70 lbs. maximum.

  3. All bike stands are designed to hold the rear tire only! Use of the front tire may be unstable and cause the bike to fall over.

  4. The bike stand must be on level ground and adjusted correctly (see "Initial Adjustment" information below).

  5. If you use the UBS-A series bike stand for transportation purposes, it must be used in conjunction with tie-downs.

  6. Warranty Information (see manufacturer's website).

  7. Approximate overall dimensions for each model;

    • Model UBS-A1               23.5” Length (rails) x 15.75” Width (base)

    • Model UBS-A2               24.5” Length (rails) x 17” Width (base)

  1. Verify the actual width of your bike tire. Note: If your stand has the optional casters, lock all 4 of the casters before continuing!

  2. Adjust the width of the bike stand by using the knob on both sides (figure 1) with the adjuster knobs (left side & right side) one turn at a time simultaneously or alternating until the initial width is 5 mm or 0.10” wider than the verified actual width of your rear tire. Use the metric/inch scale located on the left & right base (see Figure 2);

    • Clockwise to reduce the width of the stand.

    • Counterclockwise to increase the width of the stand.

  3. Turning the adjuster knobs more than one turn while alternating left/right may cause galling and/or damage to the adjuster threads.

  4. Next install the rear tire of your bike onto the bike stand, there should be a visual gap between the loop/rails and your tire sidewall by slightly rocking the tire. If so, continue tightening the left/right adjusters alternating one half turn at a time to remove the excess play between the rear tire and loop/rails. If you have it to tight the bike stand will squeeze and hold onto the tire and make removing the bike from the stand difficult. Properly adjusting the rails should allow the bike to be removed with a noticeable squeak sound created by the tire and no noticeable gap between the tire and loop/rails when slightly tipping the bike side to side. The bigger the gaps left between the tire and loop/rails, will increase side to side wobble and destabilize the ability of the stand.

  5. All UBS series “A” stands should be adjusted in the same manner.
