yep your right, has an adjuster screw at the back though


mixed reviews on amazon, but for £20 i expect you get what you pay for
wouldnt mind some real rider input though/unbiased review

Does look too small. Not the most comfortable position to work on a bike on your knees.

might as well just put wheels on your bike and lean against a wall to work on it...

for the money, it would be pretty handy if you had space in the cave to bench mount it to get it to a decent height

It's not a full workstand, it just lifts the back wheel off the ground. Ideal for car park fine tuning of the gears, and posing for pictures :D

Mines not a draper one, couldn't tell what brand it is. Had it for years - does what it says, folds flat and easy to chuck in the back of the car.
One of the nuts holding the chainstay support went walkabout, and the lower support on mine taps the spokes on my road-bike - the design of the lower support looks different on the draper one (less likely to touch the spokes), but like mine will only work with standard rear ends - with chainstay and seatstay.
