Don't look all that stout.
I use Pitbulls exclusively at the shop and the track.
Most CMRA and WERA racers I know do too.
Once you've dropped your bike off a cheap stand you'll regret saving that $25.00 - $30.00.

I agree with patrick pitbulls rock. And they look good too.
the big drawbak is they aint cheap. But they look like they will last forever and are very sturdy

PitBull Front and rear
I use the stem stand front. Easy to use and makes access to everything easy when working on everything

Sure, Pitbull makes the nicest stands. Better things to spend money on though than the nicest stand IMO. Do you already have the nicest riding gear? A supply of the nicest tires? A box full of SnapOn tools?

Get a spool type stand they are more stable.

I've got Vortex stands.......the stem type for the front, and it's a pain in the . It's fine once you lift the bike, nice and stable, but a pain to use.

I like the k&l stands they are not the prettiest but they do the job very well and so do pit bull stands.

Pitbull!

Think about how much your bike is worth to you and how much of a quality stand you want it sitting on?
