I've had a set of these for about 3 years now and absolutely love them. They are really easy to stand the bike up on and in my case where I have a small 1-car garage with a bike, ATV, a car, tool box, bench, etc. it used to be impossible to walk around through there. Now with the bike stood up I can cover it and tuck it away with ease giving me much more room. They roll around super easy and the wheel locks do indeed work like they should. What really helps is being able to just spin the bike any direction in a matter of feet rather than backing out, turning, pulling up, turning, you get the idea. I'd highly recommend them...

I have an older version of these stands and love them. Bought them back in '06 and are still working as they did then.
It is nice to push the bike into a corner with ease. The only thing is you have to be careful when pushing over a crack or uneven surfaces as you could push the bike off the stand. But with any common sense you won't have a problem over cracks and they are a great stand
I'm another supporter of the Redline swivel stands. I've had these for 4 or 5 years now and gotta say you can't beat them. There is no issue removing the front wheel with the front stand under the forks, just loosen all the bolts and pull it off.
I will tell you a couple things to watch out for though. Make sure you keep an eye on the wheels. Be sure they are fully threaded into the stands before using them. I had a couple of the studs on the casters break off because they had unthreaded themselves some and I didn't notice it. This may be partially due to me using the rear stand when hauling my bike in the back of my truck when the casters were unthreaded a little. The only other issue I sometimes run into, is the front stand will flex when moving the bike. When the front stand flexes and I'm trying to move the bike straight sideways, the wheel on the stand will contact the front tire and the bike will stop, so just be careful when moving straight sideways.
Other than those 2 small hang ups, I've had great luck with these stands and would never go without them since I have a small garage and often need to move the bike around.
