We were talking about these on another forum a few weeks ago when a question regarding the casters came up. Who knows how sturdy they are and the price point seems OUTRAGEOUS.

I thought so at first, but it is not too far off a set of new Pit Bull stands.

I took a risk and ordered a discounted price set at $350.

Cheaper than Bursig.

Can't use on triple tree or SSS though to change forks or rear tire respectively.

Better than those bike dolly items as it can be used as traditional front and rear still also.

What is the proposed price? Didn't see that info on the page.

Nice concept. I'd have to agree with others, it might need bigger casters. My garage is not near as clean and smooth as the one in the vid.

Not to mention, if it had very large casters, this would work well at pikes peak for race day.

Not sure. I got in at $350, but it is limited to a certain number then the price goes up. Eventually it is showing $425, but I imagine it will be higher once the campaign is over.

At $350, it made sense to try.

I think it is a pretty cool idea for a storage aspect but for a mechanic aspect, the pit-bull stands are hard to beat. Imagine that thing rolling down the driveway lol or when you wrench on it, it keeps moving. The triple tree front stand is necessary if you want to pull forks though.

Yep, agreed.

I will use the one I ordered for moving a bike around the garage that isn't used as often as the other (storage). I won't be getting rid of my Pit Bulls anytime soon.

Nice to know it can still be used as a "normal stand" from time to time.

better than a dolly. I don't think the rear stand has the leverage a good standard one has.
