lift/stand recommendations?

Whats the cheapest way to safely get both wheels off the ground for a tire change on these bikes? I want to be able to pull them both at the same time, I usually replace tires as a set.

Was looking at this thing: https://abbastandsusa.com/product-de...ckage-2&pid=43 but was hoping for a cheaper alternative for something I'd use maybe twice a year tops.

I've had a look around and the ABBA stands aren't much more expensive than the less worthy competition.

Prices here in Australia are outrageous though..

Front and rear package: USD$285 ..... AUD$475

Skylift USD$699 ...... AUD$1099

No thanks, i'll pass

When life throws you curves, lean into them.

What's the cheapest way? Find the cheapest stands, I guess. Perhaps a floor jack and a ratcheting tie down rig of some sort would work but I'm really not a fan of going ghetto when I work on my bikes. Maybe Harbor Freight has something out there. The rear stand is something you could certainly use more than twice a year for things like chain adjustments and cleaning. We all would like to spend less money but sometimes there isn't much choice. My friend made a rear stand out of wood way back when. It worked but wasn't very confidence inspiring.

The good thing about the abba stands is that if you change to a different bike they've got a range of adaptors. There's a German accessory website called motea that sell stands and hydraulic stands that lift the whole bike. They might be worth a try.

I have the abba superbike stand. I have had rear spool stands in the past but this much better. Works great and very well made. I have changed bikes 3 times since getting the abba stand and just bought the adapter for the new bike. I don't have the part that allows lifting both front and rear at once.

I second the Abba superbike stand. I have the accessory to the stand that lifts the front wheel off the ground along with the rear. I did not want to spent the money but I'm glad I did.

guess I missed the "cheap" part.

Seriously I have had a couple of my pitbull stands 20 years and they still work like day one. Get what you pay for.
