Did your bike fall over?? Ouch if it did, just guessing by the size of your warning!!

(heaven forbid, BTW, we'd miss the chance to repeat a topic 10x) :laughing:
Anyway, here are some pictures of the Red Racing front stand in action. By way of a quick review, it's great. Very solidly built, very easy to raise/lower the bike, etc. It's definitely a good tool for changing out the front wheel or working on brakes. I pushed the bike around a bit... no chance of it falling off the stand, and no chance of the stand tipping over (short of a full-on flying kick).
It's a little hard to see what's happening in the close-up. Basically, a plate sits atop the stand (secured by a pin that goes into the stand). You put this plate up against the bottom of the bike's lower clamp, and you're off to the races.
