Wonder how much that adds to the price? Overall they look less than the ebay listings.

I bought a set of T-rex stands. I think their cool. I've had them for a year now. I'm just not crazy about the swing arm/ rubber stand. It's def. better with spools.

The one that came in my combo pack can do swingarm rear or spool rear.

The rearstand he's got looks exactly like the Vortex one I've had for two years now and I only paid 40 for it brand new from a shop that recently closed its doors.

Some bikes have slightly different fork lengths too. A normal stand would have the bike sitting crooked.

It's also less sketchy to remove the front wheel. Much more stable in general. Fork stands they just kinda sit on the little rubber pads. Since wheel nut torques are usually around 80 ftlbs you don't want to be wailing on there with a wrench and have it fall off the stand...
