I finally bought this after years of procrastination. I should have bought it earlier as I use it almost every day. My repair stand has a device to hold the front end straight, but it is awkward to use and must be adjusted for each bike on the stand. This works for every bike, no adjustment needed. If you work on your bike at all, I would recommend this tool.
Simple tool to keep the front wheel facing forward on a work stand.Allows you to lean the bike nose down to get close w the brakes.With a Park stand a must.Rotate the bike completely on a stand without the front wheel beating you up,or flopping side to side.
I bought this to replace the flop stopper which failed twice. While the flop stopper looks cool, it depends on a composite plastic collar to hold it at the proper length. The collar that came with it split under the stress of holding my handlebars, nothing more. Wrote to the company for a replacement, that one split too. I give up, back to Blue for me and the dependability of solid metal with a lovely vinyl coating.
If you have a bike repair stand this is a must have. Attaches easily and securely and keeps the front wheel form dangling around when working on your bike.
I can't wait to use it while putting on new handle bar tape. I think it would be great for holding my handle bars still while transporting my bike on the trunk rack.
