FG Gubellini paddock stand

Hi All,


I have an FG Gubellini paddock stand for my F4.


It slides into the hollow axle from the 'chain side' only and is of robust construction.


It is basically the one in the attached photo



Please advise on thoughts on whether these are designed to allow a rider to sit on the bike whilst on the stand. I know some people may say 'try it', I dont want to find out the hard way that they are not designed to allow for this.


Many thanks

That thing looks stronger than mine, and I have tried sitting on my F4, while on the stand, and also with the front wheel on a "normal" paddock stand with a 20 mm steel rod through the front wheel axle.

One point to consider is sideways stability. This one looks a bit narrower than mine-

That's not an FG stand for an MV, pin is on the wrong side it will only work on the wheel side
FG MV stands are red......I have 4
FG stand is 52.5cm wide.....T-Rex stand is 56.5cm wide, to the outside of the wheels
pin diameter 42.1mm
1st picture FG under my Brutale.....to the left rear one under my F4 with a T-Rex stand next to it
2nd picture ID tag
3rd picture 1ton auto jack stand......probably take 2 tons

Thoughts? Make a decision yourself for a change

The photo I supplied wasn't of my stand. Mine is an FG stand but it is grey in colour and has a fatter pin that slips nicely up the centre of the axle.

When it comes to decision making for myself, if it was what wax to apply to my bike or what colour pants to wear then I can make that decision myself. If it has the possibilility of causing damage to the stand and or the bike then I will seek the opinions of others more experienced than me and this forum is of course a good place to do that.

Get down off your high horse and If you dont like offering advice for others to follow simply dont offer any.

Sub, were it me, I would probably sit on the bike with that stand. It looks to be robustly constructed.

I am wondering if there is a weight rating on one of those labels......

My thoughts are why would one want, or need, to sit on a bike while on its stand? Just sayin'.

There are several reasons to sit on a bike while it is on the stand. One that springs immediately to mind is to check riding position for rear sets.

Could also be to set up your suspension. Doing the measurements while seated on the bike.

Hey genius, for some stupid reason you posted a picture of a stand that DOES NOT FIT AN MV

THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THIS FORUM THAT SPEAK NO ENGLISH.....They look at the pictures
And Google Translator is useless for technical things
So l posted pictures of the correct stand

Your subframe is made of small horizontal aluminum tubes.....
The stand is made from large vertical steel tubes
In equal sizes steel is 3 times as strong as aluminum, aluminum weighs 1/3 as much as steel

THINK!
