BikeTek 360 Rear Floating Stand
Customer Product Reviews
Better than I thought
I was slightly worried abut how stable this would leave my bike if some one was to move it. No worries at all! The free movment of the stand is fantastic. When I'm sitting down on my stool polishing the bike I simply pull the bike along past me with ease.
Meets a need
Purchased this to manoeuvre a Speed Triple round the garage. Manoeuvring takes some getting used to, I've got it on concrete where it's hard work. If you've got a smooth surface it'll work fine, that said it's not the products fault. As others have said there are no instructions so referred to pictures on web. I will also use this stand to clean chain and perform maintenance instead of my Abba stand. At this price point it's good value.
Poor quality control by the manufacturer meant the first stand I received had to go back, the bearings for the castor swivels were full of swarf so wouldn't rotate unless under extreme pressure. Second one was a lot better but not 100% perfect, but once the weight of the bike is on it, it all swivels OK. Great idea for maneuvering bikes. As ever Sportsbikeshop customer service & returns procedure was outstanding.
Happy customer overall
The stand is good and sturdy. Easy enough to assemble but you need photographs from the website as there are no instructions. The packaging was quite damaged, and without instructions or a parts list it was difficult to know if parts were missing until assembled. It needs a relatively smooth floor to move a bike on.
Paddock stands OK
Two separate sections, a paddock stand that sits on a three wheeled 360 mover. The wheels section seem to be missing some sort of bracket to connect the two. The design engineer seems to have got fed up and QC passed it, it isn't finished! But the paddock stands OK, just do a mod to rectify their flaws.
Build is good. Instructions, none which did make life interesting. Pictures on here helped. Only fault can find is, no locking clamp between trolley and paddock stand. Have found that bike can pop off when moving, so suggest one hand on stand one on bike or like me, a cable tie to hold them together. Otherwise, good stand. Lifts bike rear wheel fully clear, easy to move. Easy to store and lightweight compared to other lifts I have.
As others have said, there are no instructions with this product which is why I have given it four stars. I cannot see why the manufacturer could not include a simple construction sheet. Apart from that the stand does a great job of holding my Kawasaki Versys.
The actual stand is very good. However, as other people have said there are no assembly instructions so I had to use the picture from this page to work out how it went together. I also have some parts (big plastic wheels and fixings) which are left over as they are on the picture above and I can't see where they fit!
This stand has it all. It's strong, stable, well made and on wheels. Can convert in a normal static paddock stand with extra wheels supplied. Only negative no instructions so if your not mechanically minded you could be scratching your head for a while. I would definitely purchase again.
