Inexpensive Rear Stand...$32.99

Just passing the news along.........

Harbor Frieght Has a 1 piece rear stand for $39.99, and then a 20% coupon

Coupon is in store only

http://www.harborfreightusa.com/usa/...9&keycode=0000

Here's the stand

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=66192

(in store price may be $49.99, but they will match online prices so print off online page).


they also sell a front fork adapter for $9.99
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=65621


By no means is this a pitbull stand, but for $32.99, i think someone can put it to use.

I've seen the stand wouldn't use it to hold up my daughters Barbie bike.

The first time you drop your bike off of it you'll more then spend the money saved buying a good quality stand.

Another question, I see they offer front fork adapters, how do you support the rear of the bike while it's on the front stand?

Not trying to rain of anyones parade, but I wouldn't want to see someone waste their money.

you don't need to put DRZs on stands...you just flip them over like a bicycle to take the wheels off.

This was my solution to a 3,000 mile trip and not wanting to clean/spray the chain by pushing the bike across the parking lot.
