Thanks for pointing out the bit about the top piece. Obviously, whatever you feel comfortable recommending from a business perspective is one thing, but I have no qualms using it. It might take a bit more creativity than with the other bikes, but once the good spots are found (for me, the linkage), it does the job just fine. Stable enough to work on the back for what I need and beyond stable enough to take the front off as well. Still $200 cheaper and less bulky than a center stand and will get the job done when I need it to. That's what matters right?
