Happy trails centerstand

Hey all,

Have any of you gotten the happy trails centerstand for your pre 2012 wee?

https://www.happy-trail.com/centerstand.html

It's a good price but I would like to not buy something that either won't fit, or won't last.

Does anyone have any other options that are less than 300 dollars (preferably under 200)?

Thanks!

I have had the HT centerstand on my '11 Wee since 2012. I thought it was good value. I only use it for chain/wheel maintenance and during winter storage. It has a narrower stance than OEM and although it is well made is probably lighter material than OEM as well ( I have not actually seen an OEM ). The installation was easy but one of the mounting bolts did break during the first few months of use. I contacted HT and they quickly sent a new set of mounting hardware. I have not had an issue since. I like their use of two springs to hold and retract the stand.
I would not sit on the bike when on the stand or rock it off the stand as I don't believe the HT stand would last with that type of use.
I paid $149 cdn back in '12.

You can see my bike on the stand in the "Show us your Wee" pics (page 281)
