Pit Bull Spooled Forward Handle Rear Stand
Excellent for Tight Spaces
My bike is parked in front of one of my cars. This space is very tight, with just a few inches to spare if the front tire of the bike is against the wall of the garage.
I purchased this because it is a space-neutral solution. Setup was a cinch. I centered the spools on the cradles and used the lowest-height option for the stand.
A traditional rear stand rotates the bike backwards, which pulls it away from the wall by a few inches. Also, the stand handle will now impinge into the space behind the bike.
The forward handle stand pivots the bike forward and there are no parts that extend behind the bike. This is a space neutral product.
Impressed with the overall quality of the product. I had been borrowing a friend's rear stand (unknown brand) and this is head and shoulders above that in terms of build quality.
The only downsides I can think of is that I wish it cleared the kick stand when the kick stand is in the down position.

I like this much more than a normal rear stand
Stand quality is excellent as you would expect from Pit Bull. Very easy setup and works perfectly with my aprilia falco even with leaving the sidestand down. I really like being able to stand beside the bike and hold it upright while lining up the spools.

Very easy to use by myself.
Obviously it's not cheap, but it is built very simple and solid. Quite easy to set up, and once adjusted correctly to hit the rear spools at the right height, is super easy to raise and lower by myself with my bike of about 450LBS.

Great for working alone.
Once set up this is great for a guy like me who works alone on his bike. I can get the bike on and off the stand by myself with no issues. Once the bike is on the stand it feels solid enough for me to feel comfortable sitting on the bike. The wheels feel a little cheap but are fine.

This Rear Stand is worth it!!
This stand does its job. Not only does pitbull make an amazing product but they also designed this one brilliantly. For those who worry about dropping their bike because of the need to stand behind it, this is your stand. The lever in the front makes it much easier to grip your bike and lift it with less worry. Excellent product!

This is my first stand, very sturdy. I like the forward handle,makes it easier by being able to hold on to the handle bar while putting it on the stand.

Great quality at a great price.
I bought this stand for my 2014 BMW S1000R and it works great. Easy to set up and the forward handle makes mounting the bike on the stand easy.
