Hi,

Does anyone know of a business in Australia that supplies the Pitbull range of bike stands ?
I am hoping to pick up a front and rear set for my bikes.

I have looked into it myself.
I don't believe their is anyone in OZ that carries pitbull stands.
Thanks for the reply. That is what I have come up with as well. I have now contacted Pitbull directly, so hope to get a quote through shortly. The stands look to be really well made, and judging by the reviews, they work nicely as well.

Their great and very reputable. Most guys use them in the US. I should've brought over a few in my container when I moved back here three years ago. Shipping will be the killer because of size and weight.
Let me know what they quote you as I may be interested also.

I purchased a pit bull trailer restraint from the US and they shipped to Oz. No dramas, all arrived safe. Good quality etc

Enhanced Automotive in SA import the Pit Bull trailer restraints if anyone is chasing them. However they do not import the bike stands as explained to me on the phone yesterday.

After finding out that a number of US online suppliers were not permitted to send the Pit bull stands out of the US, I went directly to the manufacturer.
I have ordered a hybrid front stand with the removable extended handle, as well as the hybrid one arm rear stand to suit the Ducati large hub (including the left and right pins). Pit bull were excellent to deal with - prompt reply to my emails and worked out a good deal with the shipping.
I am looking forward to getting these stands and trying them out.

My stands turned up today, and I could not be happier. The Pit bull stands are great quality and work perfectly.
I was using my front stand like that until a racer in the paddock told me that I shouldn't put the rubber pad under the axle. It is much more stable if you place both of the rubber pads directly behind the axle under the flat portion that is in between the axle and caliper mounts. Give it a try!

@cm76 Who did you get the Pitbulls through? Was the freight absurd? I'm really interested in getting a set.
I went direct to Pit bull - the service was excellent, and I received my stands within a week of ordering. Send them an email for a quote including postage.
