I just bought one for the BF's trackbike and he HATES it-like wants to take it back to the store and beat some face with it kind of hate.

So....I have a rear stand plus adapters for sale, want to buy 'em?

pitbul stands are the best IMO. they have a wide stance for stability, rigid construction, and over-sized tubes. they work great, and you NEVER hear about horror stories involving them.

+1 on PitBull. They have two different types. One is a universal stand with fittings similar to what HF has that holds the bike at the bottom of the forks. The other is dedicated/more stable and has a pin that mounts under your triple clamp. I have had both and they are the best. I now use the pin type so that I can do maintenance on the complete front end. You can remove the fork legs and the bike will stay up! I have two size pins so it works on all of my bikes.

Im pretty happy with t-rex stands. They are thinner tubing than pitbull (if you're rich, buy them) but I wanted to ride track and not stare at my bike on a stand. They are like 146/set (front and rear) plus they are located in dallas, so you will get them shipped quick. They have not done me wrong yet. Im on my second set, and the only reason is that I GAVE the first set away with the bike cause the buyer wanted them.
