Can't comment on that one, but I did just setup this one -- http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=6600

I like it -- tho I haven't put my bikes on it yet -- cuz I bought extra arms so it'll hold up to four bikes and with the long arms on the front, I think I can buy extra 'feet' to hold an extra set or two of wheels. Also, with the two arms spread a bit apart and on a stable base, I think I can do some bike maintenance. I'm in an apartment, no garage or other work space. I bought a heavy duty 3'x5' work mat to go under the stand, so when I do work, I won't ruin the carpet.

The only reason I considered the one you're looking at is cuz it's better aesthetically.
hope that helps.

Unfortunately the tubes that are supposed to match where cut wrong 1 1/2" off . So I'm going to return it and try again. However two people did comment on how great it is while I was waiting in line to pay tho.
