Has anyone had/have any experience (good or bad) with a roller stand to help make cleaning wheels and spokes easier than rolling the bike back and forth? Thanks. See link www.hardlineproducts.com/rollastand.html if you use another brand of stand, Hardline is one maker.
OBF,

no experience with the roller thingy but my hunch would be that instead of spending $65 on the roller thingy most would plunk down another $35 and get a Craftsman motorcycle lift. :yes:

These thangs are the cat's azz for cleaning, long term storage and generally holding the bike upright and solid. Since it's stainless, it won't rust when you get it wet. I've had mine for two years now. Both wheels can be spun by lifting the bike up just a little. Depends on where you place the stand. I really like mine.
I wanted a 'center stand' but got this for much less. I also own a bike lift but this is much handier, smaller and lighter.

I have the H-D version of the wheeel roller black fly. It looks pretty much the same as the one you are looking at except the H-D one has little ramps to get the bike up easier on. They are very good to clean wheels with, just be carefull, it can be tricky if you havent done it before.

New H-D Wheel Cleaning Stand

Just found on eBay a brand new, never-used H-D Wheel Cleaning Stand, part 94687-00, the one they dis-continued. I'm in business -- bring your dirty wheel to me!

Certainly not! Besides, I get to see your FXST. But don't hurry - remember, I'm retired and very busy.

I can relate as I've been laid off since May. I don't know where I found the time to work. I will probaly retire sometime this year.

I have the HD version of the wheel roller, and a Craftsman lift. The roller collects dust. Problem is that while on the side stand, you roll the wheel, and the bike slides over to the side. It is more of a PITA than it is worth. I use the lift, on it's lowest catch, and it is much easier.
