Bonnie portable centre stand

I brought the center stand from Peter Stevens Adelaide (Triumph Dealer) It works a treat so easy to use.There is no weight in it so you could put in your luggage and take it with you when you travel

Finally, maybe a solution to an elusive award of best Bonnie stand? However, $205 is pretty expensive...

I don't know what your objection is based on. I have a TEC centre stand and it's really well made and fits perfectly. Same for their shocks.

Ummm... let's see... TEC = let other people/firms design, develop and produce products and then send one of their unit to china to rip them off and undercut them on price... yep... that's the way to do things in business these days...

SC Bonneville is spot on.

I will not be one to support this business model. And will always try to purchase products from anywhere but the cheap crap from China.

Do you really know where the parts are made that you are paying inflated 'western' prices for?
My original reply was solely intended to feedback that the TEC stand I bought was well made and good value.

I don't know how "inflated" the "western" prices are... you have to cover development and design costs, the cost of actually having a 'brick & mortar" facility, in many cases including manufacturing facilities and your inventory and distribution costs...

If I take someone elses design, I eliminate that cost... if I market through ebay, I eliminate the overhead of having an actually business location and if I source through the cheapest chinese manufacturer, then I have no control over the quality control or materials used in the parts manufacture...

Is it a workable business model... yeah... happens everyday... is it "kosher"?... that's for you to decide and if you decides it is, so be it... If your motive is to get the absolute cheapest price... go for it...

But if you believe in supporting businesses that actually move things forward rather than ripping off designs and undercutting on price... pay a few more bucks and support those who support you by actually designing, developing and promoting new products...

Bottom line is though... don't criticize anyone that chooses to support the company that actually designs, in some cases actually manufactures, markets and has customer service accountability via traditional marketing/sales outlets....
