Hi All

I'm looking a getting a work stand to start carrying out my own maintenance and was wondering whether the type that secure the bike by the seatpost are suitable for carbon frames with carbon seat posts?

Any advice on this and any recommendations for a decent work stand up to around £150 would by much appreciated.

Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarves are not happy.
