MSR Hi-Jack stand

I finally broke down and bought one of these and I love it:thumbsup: I have a bunch of work to do on 3 bikes and I was tired of being on the cold concrete floor (high of 38 this weekend). I'm on concrete 5 days a week so it's nice to sit in my rolling chair and work on my bike. My knees are already thanking me:banana: That is all.

i was intrested in one of thoes a while back. my buddy bought one, i cant remember what brand it was but i wasent happy with the stability of it. hopefully urs is better

i end up buying one of these http://www.harborfreight.com/automotive-motorcycle/lifts-stands/1000-lb-capacity-motorcycle-lift-68892.html

i love it. but you cant really sit and wrench though. and not everyone has the room for it. but it acts as a bench when not in use

there regular price for it is rediclous too. i got mine on sale with a coupon for $250. had it for two years and no problems :bonk:

I have one of the scissor lifts, with casters, I love it. I did have to add an extra eye bolt on each side for the securing hooks to line up with the pegs in a straight fashion.

The full size lifts are nice. I didn't see the Harbor Freight ones... oh well this one will do. It's pretty stable I removed all my suspension with no issues and was better than I expected. Just thrilled to be off the floor. It's kinda a bitch for me to pick up my wr450 to get it on and off the stand so I need to figure out something easier like ramps or just get stronger :smirk:

That's where the one with wheels shines, it Rolls right under the bike.

It would be possible to add casters to yours but the legs would need to be shortened equal to the height of the casters.
