    Light is good (which is the Oxford ones). The ones like your ebay link tend to be a little more flexible and require a little bit of aligning each time you use them which is slightly annoying.

    Both appear to only come with forks to work with pickup spools, so you'll need to get some of those if your bike doesn't have them presently fitted. Some bikes don't have provision to bolt in pickup spools, in which case the flat plate lifting setup is what you want - and neither of those appear to suggest they come with the plates as well as the pickup spools.

    I don't have pickup spools currently fitted, but my bike does have bolt holes for them.

    Cool, that's one thing sorted. Ghetto option are just appropriately sized bolts, no actual need for spools. That's a good option for temporarily getting you going. Spools are easier on the arms of the stand though.

    Are the ones that use the pickup spools any better/safer than and ones that don't ?

    I've one one on Bikebiz that just has the flat bits you rest the swing arms on.
    I don't really see the bike moving much once its up on the stand, but I've not done this before so.....

    The flat ones are harder to use as the swing arm is varying widths at different points and the spools are a fixed place and width. I have to use the flat ones on an older bike and it is fiddly and can be easy for the bike to fall, I don't like them.

    Did the spools come with bolts?
    Maybe a silly question, but the spools don't appear to have bolts to go in the hole on my swing arm.
