Well I recall that in the 'stands group buy' thread you all wanted to know how I felt about the TRex stands once I got them.
In short, I'm extremely pleased. I am never one to skimp on cost and sacrifice quality. I had always planned to buy a set of pitbull stands, but this deal was too good to pass up, and it turned out to pay off. I figured I would give them a shot and if they sucked, return them. I certainly won't do that. Unless you absolutely HAVE to have the pitbulls for brand name or whatever, I wouldn't spend the extra cash. These are a great set of stands and they work perfectly. I got a rear stand that can do swingarm or spools, a front fork stand with triple tree adapter, a set of rear spools, and all hardware for 160 bucks shipped. That's the price of ONE pitbull front triple tree stand. You can't beat this deal, and for all of you that were worried about the quality, rest assured it is top-notch
They showed up and everything was packed up EXTREMELY well, all wrapped carefully and safe. I pulled it all out and assembled it. Although the stands are two piece, the quality is great, and they aren't going to break. Here is a picture of everything you get and I have noted what all the parts are (note that it comes with the triple tree pins for all sport bikes):
Here is a picture of the two stands:

Anyways, now that I have been the TWF 'guinea pig' to test these out
, you can all be comfortable in buying them. I wouldn't spend your cash unnecessarily on anything more expensive. Buy these and a track day.
You can find them on ebay just search for the username t-rexstands, or I think he has a website also. The guy's name is Tom and he's very helpful. He also sells non-triple tree fronts, and non-combo packages as well, or various setups in case you already have a rear or something
