True. It's been a few years since I did that frame swap; I remember it wasn't that stable but still managed to get the job done. Sometimes you have to make do with what you have for the time being.

As for a shop or having paying customers, that's another story. I'd have all the right tools/stands/etc for every job.

If you dont like it dont ****ing buy it. I bought one and I love it. Many others have bought them and loved them.

Oh, wah! Lol. Don't get your panties in a bunch.

I'm not opposed to having a side stand and have mentioned in another thread that I considered buying one, but it still wouldn't achieve what the Abba Sky Lift stand or having a work table/lift can do in terms of getting the bike off the ground to a more comfortable height.

I currently kneel, sit on my ass, lay on my back, or sit on my seat creeper when working on my bike. Depending on what I'm doing or how long I work on my bike, my neck or lower back will get sore sometimes. Getting the bike higher would alleviate that. A HF lift with a coupon or building a work table would be a cheaper solution than the Abba Sky Lift stand.

Mine freed up a lot of space for my car, I can now pull in with a passenger and they can get out. Before that it just wasn't happening. I have now rearranged and it allows me to push the bike in a spot that moving by itself would make it super annoying.

Wah wah

I just bought a cheap ass chair with wheels. Have had it for years and works great, even with the bike on the ground.
