    I use one like the MSR you ordered at home pretty frequently for quick service stuff (I have a full sized lift for big repairs) and it works great and tucks away nicely when not needed.

    I'm kinda cheap, scrap lumber and it makes a handy seat when needed. Built to the height I needed.

    I know this us about stands, but on moderns with good side stands I find little or no need to haul along a jack stand or crate.

    I do when I take the Fantic, but that's because the stock stand was crap and I lost track of it a couple of decades ago. I really should make a replacement as it's a real hassle to find things to lean the bike against in competitions.

    Stands are useless if you want to change oil

    Thst is why the full bile stand is for. Plus I can do tires and forks on 4 bikes at once.

    I was not really looking for a stand for events. Just for storing the bike in the shop and when working on it. A fixed height stand for events is fine. I only paid $70 shipped for the MSR, so I am fine with the cost. I might try to make some nice wood stands as well.

    this one is my favorite as well. so useful. and the little pitcher that came with it worked great for oil changes. If I could I would buy another.

    Your picture did not show up. Would you mind trying again. I am interested to see what your creation looks like. Thanks.

    I got the MSR Lift Stand. It is a nice stand that I will probably use for my DR-Z400 instead as it does not seem like I will need it on my new Scorpa. The Scorpa 300 Factory feels so much lighter to pick it up. Compared to my old GG the Scorpa feels like a bicycle. I think the GG only weights 8lbs more, but it makes a difference.

    I built a scrap wood version last year and it’s been great.

    I bought one of these Rage folding MX bike stand that included oil drain catch bucket and folds up for storage. I noticed that at 20" tall, it might be a bit of an effort to lift a trials bike onto it. Fortunately for me, I have a loaner L-T Ohlins shock that lets the bike sit up much higher and a "Tugger" strap to help me lift my Evo 200 onto the taller stand without any issues. For a regular-travel suspension Trials bike, I think an 18" bike stand is a better fit. $40.50 delivered for the Rage MX Stand with oil drain plastic bucket is a nice addition to my workshop.
