The pit-bulls are indestructible. Best part, like in Rusty's case, if he got a bike that needed spools, he just buys a couple extra parts for the adjuster side of the stand, and voila, there ya go.
I got the Trackside stand from CycleGear, it was on sale for like $45. It works with either spools or without and is pretty sturdy. My only complaint is that its collapsible handle doesn't tend to lock in place when extended, but I reckon I could use a mill bit to help it find a "seat".

"This old engine has a nickels-and-dimes sound to it. As if there were a lot of loose change flying around inside. Sounds awful, but it's just normal valve clatter. Once you get used to that sound and learn to expect it, you automatically hear any difference. If you don't hear any, that's good." -- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
