After fitting the stand today, does this look to vertical? it seems steady enough but most stands I have seen are leaning slightly back towards the rear wheel. Is yours like this?
I also used the mini ratchet method and I can tell you guys, if you are thinking of fitting the stand yourself I would get a mini ratchet and do use it. Apart from faffing about finding a piece of cord strong enough (15 mins) the whole job took me about 40 mins.
