    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? :clap

    While catching up on Noah's RTW blog, I came across this photo. Looks like I need to give that a shot as well!

    If for some reason You end up short a stand Steve and SteveWFL needs it before his cross country ride... I can ship him the one that I got from ya, for my friends Jessica's cross country ride. Might save ya some grief in a pinch!^)-

    Her engine blew while crossing MT and so it still sits here in her goody box with some books, and a headlight for her DRZ.
    Was getting ready to ship her stuff this week, but nooo hurry on the TrailStand for awhile...

    :D It took a little longer this time, but I have enough to cover all the backorders and I will be assembling, packing and creating the labels through today and this evening, I will ship as many as I can tonight and the rest should go out tomorrow. First orders in will be first out as you would expect.
    Thanks very much for your patience on your order, we small U.S. businesses appreciate our customers! :clap

    "Always take an umbrella with you in order to keep the rain away" some people say.

    This principle is not true for the trail stand: I haven't had a puncture for years but the weekend after I received it I did have one!

    Glad I took it with me and it worked just fine. Thanks for a good product!

    Very cool indeed!! I will be ordering one for myself when I come back from my Bishop ride.

    Not to worry, I will show lots of pics while testing it on wheel set changes at home.

    Now lets just hope I didn't jinx myself for a flat this weekend!

    Good day folks,

    I just bought a trail stand and am wondering how do you lift the bike to put the stand under it? I'm traveling at the moment and don't have the opportunity to mess around with it but am perplexed at how I would do it solo. Any suggestions would be great

    Cheers

    Hey nextlife23,

    Rear Wheel lift:
    Loosen axle nut and other hardware first,
    Turn front wheel to the left and lock the front brake with the included strap,
    Adjust the Trail Stand higher than the spot you will place it, typically under the frame buy the right side footpeg, you may need to adjust it more than once to just get the rear wheel off the ground. If your bike tilts too far onto the kickstand put something under it like a flat rock to make the bike more upright when the Trail Stand is in place to increase stability.
    You can kneel down and push on the side of the seat with your left hand and place the Trail Stand under the frame with your right. Or your can stand and bend over and lift on the rear footpeg mount (if you have one) or the swingarm and place the Trail Stand.

    You always want the Trail Stand vertical, with the foot FLAT on the ground, it must be place such that the only force on the Trail Stand is a vertical down force only.

    For the front, kneel on your right knee with the handle bar already turned to the left and push straight up on the throttle end of the bar and place the Trail Stand in a hole in your skid plate on the right front side typically. Someplace that it cannnot slip, if your bike is not stable like this again put something under the kick stand to make the bike stay more upright and put more down force on the Trail Stand. You can also place something on the right side of the rear wheel to stop it from rotating around the kickstand.
    Again loosen the hardware first before putting the bike on the Trail Stand and remember it's up to you to decide if using the Trail Stand is stable enough for you to use on your bike, since all bike geometry's are different you have to make the decision to use it or not.

    Here are the instruction from the website and there is a pdf link on this page also:
    http://www.endurostar.com/ts2_instr.htm

    It's really not as hard as it is to write up, just make sure there is enough downforce on the Trail Stand and you always lock the front brake with the strap when lifting the rear wheel.

    Thanks for the order, please ask more questions if necessary, you can email me at endurostar@yahoo.com

    Haven't bumped the thread for a while, the fall was busy. Time to get ready for the spring riding season!

    Anyone got some new pics of the Trail Stand in use?

    Hard to imagine why it took me so long to buy one of these. Used one that my buddy had to change a flat on the trail and couldn't believe how easy it was. Great product.
