I have; in over 30 years of riding and racing, I've owned and subsequently sold or gave away; LP, Handy, Woodcraft, K&L, DP, and some no name brand I bought from a friend.

I've used countless other brands working on other peoples racebikes.

I've had my oldest Pitbull stand almost 8 years now, never had a bike fall off of it, use it almost daily and other than some concrete scratches she's like brand new.
The wheels are still round and roll well and are tight on their spindle, the spool hooks are great and the stand in general is just as good as any of the newer Pitbulls we use daily in the shop.

Like I said earlier, there's lots of other stands out there, but typically most experienced riders / racers like the Pitbull, plus you'll only buy them once because they never seem to wear out.

I agree. The Pit Bull rear stand is the standard, and like Patrick, I've had mine for years.

Not a big fan of the front though (pin/triple style). Like every Pit Bull fan here has said already, build quality is great, but I think the front is a little heavy/bulky. The Woodcraft front pin/triple stand is lighter and a little easier to use, IMO. Had mine for years as well.

Just wished PitBull had a 'titanium' edition. BLINNNNGGGGGGG!!! I'm sure they wouldn't be expensive. (*COUGH!*)

Yeah I definitely prefer the "fork lift" front for everything but fork service.

i have the t-rex rear stand and have not had any problems with it. it is not one piece like a pit bull but it gets the job done and seems sturdy to me. i dont leave my bike on a stand for extended periods of time either. .02

They're not bad, just not the most sturdy.

i have a set of these stands for one of my bikes, and they work great, all my friends have pitbulls, and i have used them for a while too. but i got these, put them together and they work great, just as sturdy as pitbull to me, especially the rear. can't complain a bit
