Chain maintenance is so much easier now.
Gel pad. FT seat is even worse than Icon one (imo). Haven't taken any rides yet with it on Scram, but it worked well on 2x4 that they call a seat on KLR.Cripes they look strong enough to lift a Chevy!
Sorry to hijack but what is the strap/on seat cover, is it a gel pad and if so does it make a big difference to comfort?
The roller stuff is fine for wheel cleaning / chain maint. - but I need something to secure the bike during wheel removal.I like the stand concept but I have been using an alternate style roller type wedge that you place on the ground and then roll which ever end front ot rear onto and it makes both chain cleaning/maintenance and wheel cleaning a breeze and cost only 30.00 USD. For the cost of two of those pitbull stands plus just a bit more money you can invest in a decent hydraulic work stand that is much more useful like my neighbor has:

The Euro vs dollar conversion rate keeps falling, and remember that customers in the USA don't pay the 20% VAT tax.
Perhaps we could arrange a group buy at a good price?
The list price including delivery to the USA is $432.
How much less does the pair of pit bulls cost?
My neighbor has rebuilt two bikes frame up using the stand and he is not one to be gentle with them, maybe he has a different model then you've seen but after 4 years his is still going strong.The roller stuff is fine for wheel cleaning / chain maint. - but I need something to secure the bike during wheel removal.
I wouldn't put any bike on one of the Harbor Freight lifts, I've seen - first hand - how unstable and cheaply made they are.
I'm not questioning it's durability - just it's lack of safety. Take a look at this video for reference, its a bit long - but informative. I took a chance on one of these a couple of years ago, and donated it to the scrap heap when I saw how one of my bike "teetered" while using it.My neighbor has rebuilt two bikes frame up using the stand and he is not one to be gentle with them, maybe he has a different model then you've seen but after 4 years his is still going strong.
