Any experience with stand rollers?

I'm looking for something to get the rear wheel up/rolling in the quick for a spray of lube. Anyone have any experience with stand rollers like this Harbor Freight one?

These require that you roll the bike onto it, and if you can't afford a rear stand, would work in a pinch. They are also cheap and more portable than a rear stand.

IMO, I would think most rear wheel maintenance is easier on a stand, only thing you can do with this is lube chain, and clean the wheel.

How is the bike going to be held up if this is used ?

I actually don't need to lift the wheel, just need it to roll for lubing. Unfortunately I don't have a garage to work in for the past year now and the driveway's not paved. The little cemented area I have to work with next to the house is slanted so getting her up on the paddock stand is more of a 2-person ordeal comfortably... I could put her up on the paddock in the sidewalk or on the shoulder by the street, this just seems like a good solution for quick clean and lubes even on the slanted areas next to the house.

I've toyed around with this idea too. But I suspect as the wheel turns the bike would try to walk away from you unless it was level. My solution to this possible problem.
2 axle stands and 1 piece of rebar... through the center stand holes. Even adjustable on un evenground!
Axle stands.... $25
Rebar/steel rod.... usually free somewhere...
good luck.

Just like g00gl3it has done in the video. Thanks g00gl3it!

Anytime! Sucky thing is, this no longer works with a 900RR setup

Phobman, we need a Phobman stand 2.0, for 900rr setups!
