Wheel Chocks

I'm very interested in purchasing one of the free-standing wheel chocks for use in storing the K12LT over winter. At this point I like the Condor and Bike-Grab the best. If the Condor will actually support the K-bike by the rear wheel it will be my choice because that would really help a tight storage situation. I did a search of the NG and read a report that the LA Chock is a real pain to extricate the K-bike from. So, if you have any experience with any of these free standing wheel chocks I'd appreciate hearing about your experiences--good and bad.

Another perspective.

LA Chock is not difficult. I was able to get the bike out while it was in the step down portion of the trailer (the bike was in a forward incline position) by just pulling back on the handlebars. You can always use reverse to get it out also.

Thumbs up Wheeldock works for me

I have a Wheeldock. I use it in my trailer and free standing in my garage. It is easier to get in an out of than then some of the others that require the bike run over a fulcrum or bump to actuate the locking mechanism. It is well made and easily transportable. When the bike is locked in place it is very stable. I do not know if it can be utilized at the rear wheel but you could call them. They have a nice clip on their web site.

I made a set of side stands that use the use the motor mount holes to hold the bike up in stead of putting it up on the center stand, I also have a condor chock and prefer the side stands. I also made a set with wheels, now I can push the LT around in my shop with out worry about it going down. If interested let me know. I think there are some pictures in one of may posts.

I personally use the Condor for my LT as well as the M/X and some others. We also use them in the shop as well as the trailers and Van for transporting. Very versatile and reliable.
