Redline swivel stands??

Looking to pull the trigger on a set of these. I would love to move the bike around on the stands as I please. I wanted to check here first and see if anyone has tried them out? Any reviews?

not sure about the front, but i'd trust the rear and will probably be grabbing one of these in january since my bike room is smaller and it would be nice to move it around easier while indoors.

i bought a stand that goes with my current(non-pitbull) rear stand. cost was 40 bucks and works like a charm. allows to swivel the rear end around 360 while on stand. those redline stand look like they may be hard to get the bike on. ill take a pic of my setup.

There is a video on the link I posted above. The guy put the bike on the stand in about 2 seconds. He then maneuvers it all around with ease. Looks tempting as hell

I have the regular redline stands..nothing wrong with them at all. Ian (the owner of Redline) is a member here. Used to be pretty active and go to the conventions, but don't see him around any more.

I haven't talked to him in a bit either. They advertise their car lifts on craigslist all the time .

I have the regular Redline stands also. Been using them for 8 years with no problems. I've seen the roller ones he sells in person and they work great. Just don't roll it on a rough surface or it may stop and you'll push the bike over. Work best on a nice smooth concrete floor.

There are instructions on the site also telling you how to move the bike on the stands. Do that and you'll have no problems.

Will do. I thought they looked like they were very well made. (Not mass produced junk) I emailed the owner for a shipping quote and he seemed very professorial as well. Now that I have some input from you and KMac about them I will be ordering.
