    No idea, I have no experience with Abba. In my dreams, I would love to own a sky lift. I don't NEED one, though, and so cannot justify the cost.

    All I need is a rear stand and I use Pitbull. If I needed more, I would probably go for the Abba front and rear package.

    Yep that gives TONS of access to the rear end... LOVE it. Not as fast putting the bike up with the pit bull, but as my bike is my daily (only) I woudln't be putting it up on the stand often.

    I've wondered myself about getting one of those stands but like DELuth I can't justify it.

    My bike lives in a barn and has a chain hoist just above it. I can haul it up to eye level and also spin it around.

    Does the trick, though it does take a minute or two to raise it up. Keeps your back in good nick though, and your legs.--

    I would love a place that has a 2 or 4 post hoist / chain hoist.

    My Salary disagrees.

    I have both the Abba Superbike stand and also the new Abba Skylift , fantastic bit of kit for easy maintenance, allows working on it in 3 different modes, wheelie mode with front wheel high , stoppie , with rear wheel high, or horizontal around 3 feet of the ground , highly recommend it.

    Another vote for the Abba - I've used mine across three different bikes just by obtaining a different fitting kit each time (around £20) - I rarely used paddock stands and it's a one man operation and very stable allowing rear wheel access and removal - you can jack the front slightly (I use a light bottle jack) and have both wheels off the ground (Abba also sell a kit that allows this) - I think I paid about £120 for mine (Ebay can often get you one for half that) - it's probably the most used and best value item in the shed...Highly recommended as a lifetime bikers purchase
