    By far the best stand you can get and never a worry about the safety or security of it when the bike is on it. Hell, I am more worried using the bike lift to get it on the stand.

    Instead of 2 x 8 I used ( 2 ) 2 X 4 and 4 X 4 because its what I had laying around, they were treated and a little twisted. Once the bike sits on them its straight as an arrow, solid as a rock. A little twist never hurt anybody lol
