One arm rear stand

I just purchased a One arm rear stand and was wondering what others' opinions are of these? They are incredibly well built (have the front as well) but I'm a little concerned about the constant pressure on the ESA shock while being stored (as opposed to the center stand where the weight is on the frame). As well, what about the torque imposed on the FD since the pin only goes in about 1/3 of the way into the drive tube...

Perhaps these are unfounded concerns considering the torque the FD undergoes when riding, but the pressure on the shock has me a little worried.

Anyone out there with opinions on the subject?

Try checking a front wheel holder/stand.

I have a Titan Bulldog chock and just ride the bike into it. It holds the bike upright with no need for kick or center stand.

Yep, I'm going back to the center stand and returning the rear stand.

I checked the tire using a level on rear stand and the wheel is twisted 1/2 an inch not 1 inch.
