    Your link did not work. Was it to the 'Delta Rothco'? I took a look at it- seems to be very similar to what I see in a lot of shops, and I'm guessing would be a decent storage stand.

    I've got the freestanding metal deal, the bikesaloft from performance:

    Works great. We've got 3 bikes on it. Nashbar sells one that's practically identical.

    It would appear to be the same stand most likely an error so take advantage now if someone wants one, the will have to honor the price but sales are always comming up but the price is very good.
    Unless the photo is incorrect but I only know of one XPORT Bikes Aloft 2 model. I paid $69.99 during one of their sales.

    That stand at $59 is an excellent buy. It would appear to be sold under many different brand names and all appear to be the same size tubing. An extra pair of short arms installed on the back will allow you to handle 3 bikes without problem.

    I orderd one guys.
    Thanks.

    I'm having it shipped to their store.
    I also purchased this stand http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...slisearch=true

    I had them price match it with bluesky cycling's price of 29.98

    Lets hope they don't take a month to ship it to their own store.

    The Aloft 2 Storage Rack rocks. I have had mine for 4 years now. It doubles as a work stand pretty well if you set the bike at the right level.

    Will you be storing it next to a wall?

    If so, you could use/make a wall mount (the kind that holds the top tube with two arms) and just mount it on the wall so the bike's tires are still on the ground, but the bike is more stable.
