Question Easiest to use front wheel paddock stand - UK?

Hi all, can someone recommend a good solid easy to use front wheel stand available to use and purchase in the UK?

I've never really used paddock stands before having mainly older bikes but recently bought this one for the rear:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-Pro...53.m2749.l2649

I can use this fine but was wondering if I can lift both the front and rear at the same time, mainly just for cleaning the wheel etc as I'll probably take it do the dealer when getting new tyres fitted.

TIA

Hi John if you want to lift the front up on a front paddock like this one as you have the rear one

you have to have the bike on the rear paddock stand before you can use the front one so yes its fine

I use an ABBA stand with the front lift arm, or an ABBA Skylift but good quality stuff and easy to use.

I've used Pit Bull stands for years. Simply the best.

Same here, more than a few decades. Quality product.

Ahh, but the OP is in Europe. Prolly a lot of quality stands there.

Same as Bugz John. I had it for my GSX-S 1000 but just bought adaptor end pieces for the 790 when I bought it. Utterly stable and does the business.
