Was looking to get a pitbull stand but pretty much none of the online retailers carry them anymore! Didn't want to buy it through but I'll because they have a month of lead time and charge for shipping. Called up STG and apparently Brian has a special relationship with Pitbull and can still sell them over the phone and via email and lucky for me, they had 1 left in stock!
Was able to use my STG cash, get free shipping, and had the stand delivered within 4 days!!
This is the first time using a forward handle stand and it took some time to set up but it works really well now that the height and width are adjusted to fit my bike. The forward handle makes it much easier to get my bike up on the stand. It does require quite a bit of force to get my 500lb bike up but it's at least easier to position while holding my bike upright.
