Re: Just joined the group

Cheers guys, After doing some research I have decided to go with the Abba stand :thumbup: . The extra security (bike not dropping) and the fact that one stand does most if not all bikes with the right adapter sound's good to me, worth the extra cost! I shall keep my eye out on fleabay as there's a f...
