Bike Lift Front Stand FS-10
Save yourself a lot of headaches - don't buy this product.
I would first like to say this review is not a knock on Revzilla, because I think it is a fantastic company and will continue ordering from them.
The major problem with bike-lift products in that the adapters to actually make this stand (and all stands) useful are NOT included. Not a big deal if you can search for and purchase the adapters online. As it turns out, bike-lift has discontinued selling the adapters in the US. The only US company I found that sold the front adapters did not have them in stock, and could not order them for me. I was issued a refund, and afterward contacted bike-lift directly. They set me up with their North Am distributor, located in Ontario. I ended up getting the cone and pad style adapters which costed me, with shipping, nearly as much as the bike stand alone.
At the end of the day, does it function as a front stand? Well...the cone adapters work well with my forks and give me easy access to the axle (the whole reason why I chose this stand), but the pad style adapters are actually too wide and don't lift the forks at two solid points on either side.
In all honesty, Revzilla should consider removing this product from their website because I don't want any other customers to go through the same headaches I went through.
