I currently have a bike stand with a slot for the rear hub and it has served my bike for a number of years. I've got a second bike coming and could just buy another one. It's this one here:

It's a BikeHut Floor Stand. I've always wondered whether this type of stand could cause any damage to the rear forks or wheel due to the potentially high lateral force when slotting the bike into it and if the bike isn't perfectly vertical.

Hence, before I buy another of these, is there a better compact bike stand that is mechanically more sympathetic that this type of stand?

In particular I was looking at this one where you roll the rear wheel onto it:

However, it's twice the price.
