Been using a Park Tool PCS-1 for years, it works.  Don't think it's made anymore.  One thing I would want is foldable legs to take it camping/races etc... Any Park Tool or Ultimate will be a quality stand.

I bought a cheap nashbar work stand for $80 from their web site.  It works as it is supposed to, and best it fold easily.  check them out if price is an issue.

I've had the same Park stand for almost 15 years.

Krunnch, buy the type that screw right into the wall studs. Park Tool makes them but they are not cheap. Otherwise you can get the type they have at some LBS that bolt down to the floor via a large metal base plate. Probably telling you what you already know.

Hard to imagine anything on that DH bike would break on any of our local trails. I think you take the hammer to it while no one is looking so that you have an excuse to buy the latest parts and spend the weeknights installing them.
Wait a second, did I just expose myself?

Smart:
Husband: I have to spend $120 on a new derailleur because I broke my old one....see it here in pieces sweety.
Wife: Well I guess that bike keeps you in shape and healthy so we'll have to just work it into the budget.

Not smart:
Husband: I have to spend $120 on a new derailleur because everyone else in the Swamp club has the new model.
Wife: Looks like you need to put in some extra hours at work then honey.

@ Alafia:
- Broke Kalloy seat post at the saddle mount
- Broke Specialized BG2 sport saddle rail in half
- Broke "x" compression cartridge in 888 (don't know if this was here or at Santos)
- Bent over my left LX brake lever
- Broke short cage SRAM X9 rear derailleur in 3 pieces...
- Broke (2) chains...pieced them back together with SRAM gold links
- Broke a large branch off in my spokes and have a partially bent spoke now
- Don't forget bent Blackspire Badger FR crank (crash replacing soon)
- ....hehehe

@ Santos
- Bent top shock mount bolt
- Broke "x" compression cartridge in 888 (don't know if this was here or at Alafia)

Thankfully I don't have a wife/gf to answer to yet, so I just break things for shiz and giggles....lol Though I should provide the disclaimer that as a child, I use to chew on hot wheel cars and had/have the touch for breaking anything I come in contact with...

**Back on topic...no I haven't heard about the Park PCS 11, but I am looking into stands myself. So I will let you know.**
