looks like its a decent stand, but i dont really know anything about stands.. probably just liquidating stock at low prices, these have been around for a while.

that stand will work to hold the bike up. I wouldn't trust it to be able to sit on it, though.

Looks relatively sturdy, and cheaper than the vertical horizon stand I got on eBay!

You'd be plenty surprised how often a bike gets sat on while it's on the rear stand.

I picked up the Vertical Horizon for like $48 bucks, pretty good deal. The stand is a 3 piece, bolt-together affair. Whats nice is the joints aren't load bearing. I may grind off the powdercoat at the joints and weld it up for peace of mind, though. For the money, it can't be beat!

**disclaimer- I only use the stand for cleaning the chain or other maintenance. It is sturdy enough to sit on it, I personally don't see the need

yeah, I really dont see the need to sit on a bike while it's jacked up on the stand..and I can get my hands on a welder if needed so those bolt-together stuff wouldn't really be a big deal
