re-locating tool tray on Ultimate stand
So I've got myself an Ultimate repair stand which has been some of the best money I've spent in my cycling career. The one thing I don't like about it compared to the Park stands is how low the the tool tray. Pedals are constantly whacking into it and tools aren't nearly as easy to get to as the Park tool trays which are up closer to the head. Any ideas how to move the tool tray to the upper section of my stand?
Since ultimate has designed the tool tray to use shims for mounting it on the different diameters of tubes of the different stand models they sell, I would say to try that. Just find a shim of the correct thickness, slide the actual mount over it and than slide the tooltray in it.
yeah, it came w/ 2 shims, no? that's what I recall anyway, one of the shims it to put up higher.... now where did I put that darn thing?

I don't think they are thick enough to combine and mount to the telescoping section.
However, I'm surprised you're having this trouble. Even with the wide platform pedals on my wife's bike, I'm able to rotate the tray to the opposite side of the stand such that it is entirely clear of the pedal arc. If there were a problem, the pedal would just as soon strike the lower support tube if it struck the tool tray.
