A forum member by the name of Ostbob showed me another way to stand the bike up straight.
Click here to watch the video.
Let me know what you think.
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!

What is a wheel dock ? Pictures of your bike on it please .
All is explained -- with pics -- in this article I wrote for webBikeWorld almost two years ago:

Wheeldock Review - webBikeWorld

Shortly after I wrote that and made the video that goes with it, I got in the habit of riding the bike into the Wheeldock -- no more pushing -- every time I finished riding for the day.

There are a lot of other high-quality chocks, but for the reasons I explained in the article, I prefer this "no-hump" one. There are a bunch of other forum members who use the Wheeldock (and a bunch who use a Condor, etc.).

See you in the spring.
