OK, so by that I mean I bought a hydraulic lift, assembled it, and used it for the first time today. But I got your attention, didn't I?
I watched Paul's video, and tried a few different things. But I'm still trying to figure out the best jack points to lift by. I decided to ask here for advice, while I also search around the forums.
Do you all with XC's/XCT/etc fit your lift directly across the middle of the bike? I ask as I heard a comment about "being off about 20 degrees" etc and when lining up the lift points, I was trying to avoid uneven lifting. I settled on quite a diagonal approach, but don't think this is the answer.
Here are some pix:
This is the right side of the bike, the front to the right.

So, let me have it. Do I straighten it out more, I'm interested in what seems to be working for you all.
