The good:

- As always, nice video, Paul: clear, concise, well made and edited.

- Cheap and simple.

The, eh, so-so:

- The height of the right-side block will depend on the tire and amount of air in the shock, for those anal types (like me) who really want the bike straight.

- What if you bump into the bike -- will it fall over?

Me, I'll stick with my WheelDock. Much more expensive than the 4x4, but no worries about falling over (and I saved money by not buying a table saw), and I can ride into it after every ride (saving garage space).

But, yep, good idea for temporary needs. And quality video.

Paul, your videos are always great!

Personally I'd be very nervous with blocks in that configuration trying to hold the bike up straight.

Like Wsp suggested and others, I got a WheelDock and love it.

Great low cost idea!

Keep those great videos coming!

Happy Holidays Brothers!
