Why can't you just hang the bike from the ceiling with ropes or straps? I do that all the time.For 1098:
What would be cheaper, do you think - this stand or paying dealer to remove+replace the triples, forks and shock? I need this job done but can very easily justify doing it myself with this stand!

OK, what I do is take a tall step ladder, like a 7 footer. Put the bike under the ladder and hang it from the top step. I use the tie down straps with the ratchets. Works great but I have to secure the other end of the bike also or it wobbles around too much. Where there is a will, there is a way.Have you seen my garage LOL? I wouldn't swing a 5 pound monkey from the roof...it's a 50 year old POS that my landlord has promised me since I moved in he would be replacing. Yah right LOL.
Besides, I can think of dozens of uses for this stand, and sell my Ducati stands
It is cool as it is, but I'd like to see a U.S. version that ratchets up in small increments, not just full height. Price point is steep, but matches the build quality as shown.
No rafters in my garage, nor most European garages.Why can't you just hang the bike from the ceiling with ropes or straps? I do that all the time.
Totally agree with you on that, that guy is my kind of genious! The exchange rate is why I want to see a US version, made here, priced for here. :yeah:Credit for the inventor, but don't forget that everything in Europe has a price premium for equivalent or less value than for things in the USA. Then you have the weak dollar...
