I’ve had a Park Tool PCS-10 stand, it’s about 7-8 years old.
There’s a compression sleeve and cone set that allow the clamp to rotate the bike up and down. They’re made of black plastic (ABS?) and I can’t find any guidance on lubrication.
The problem is that once it’s tightened to secure the bike from rotating, I need a hammer to break that “stiction” between the nut and sleeve. Once it breaks free it spins fine.
I’ve tried grease, assembly compound, and anti seize. It’s been either too loose or still sticking.
Trying some MSW now, which seems promising.
Anyone else have a method?
