Mdr have you tried their centre lift stands? How do they compare to the abba stands?

Not used my Abba stand since I bought it and tried it out...

Too much faffing removing frames hole covers just for chain maintenance and cleaning for me  :006:

I have an old Scorpion one that lifts under the fork legs. Has pegs that slot into the holes in the bottom of the forks. Easy peasy to use and rock steady.

Hi, why not buy one of these a1JAC stand they are not cheap but neither is the body work on the sx while you are trying to put it on a paddock stand. When in use It lifts both wheels off the ground and high enough to get both wheels out for tyre changing, good for oiling and adjusting chain. I can spin it round in my garage so ride in, place on stand spin it round so bikes pointing out. Now based in Sheffield not Leeds had mine since I bought my sx 3years ago so no affiliation with Sheffield. You can always sell it on or buy just another fitting kit for it if you change your bike.
