Re: Best Bike Stand

I use an Abba stand which lifts the rear off the ground a treat, will probably buy a headstock stand later this year

Re: Best Bike Stand

2 thumbs up for Pit bull stands very nice I use a cheaper version because I got all three stands at one time spool, fork, and head tube, But I have used the Pit Bull and they are nice and very well made.

Re: Best Bike Stand

i finally ordered some stands last night. went with MotoGP front and rear for $89.99 total + shipping. don't know if they're any good, but didn't want to spend the $'s for the Pitt Bulls (which i'd really like to have)

Hope i like them.

It's not really a matter of likeing them...It's a matter of if they will hold your bike without falling apert and your bike falling to the ground...

Having said that, I have some cheap ones and some pitbulls. I have not had a problem with the cheapies yet but you can certainly notice the difference in how sturdy the bike is on them compared to the pitbulls.

Good luck.

Re: Best Bike Stand

I had a cheap stand and you could see it "tweak" back and forth when it was under a load.. I bought the pit bull and it lofts it as if it is weightless!!

Re: Best Bike Stand

Lockhart Phillips makes the worlds number one selling stand... In white or black. I have the white one. My bike (a 919) doesn't have spools to lift it with, so I had to get a generic swingarm stand. Works great, and it had "roller blade" style wheels. Good price to, 80 bucks give or take.

Re: Best Bike Stand

I am confident enough to sit on my bike during the winter months and make vroom vroom sounds while my bike is on the Pit Bull Stands.

Re: Best Bike Stand

Best = Pitbull
Best for the money = anything that doesn't cost you extra money in repairs.
It always comes down to personal choice, doesn't it?
