Re: Wheel Chock
I originally bought a wheel chock from Cycle Gear, couldn't get the LT out without a neighbor's help, even after putting a plastic bag over the wheel cradle as recommended by another rider to prevent the tire from sticking to the cradle. Took it back and bought a Condor, which I really love.
I normally parked my LT, and now my GTLE in the chock nightly. To ensure the chock doesn't move forward when riding into it, I bolted some wood blocks in front and back of the front brace. This worked well, but once, when I had been working on the LT, I used the foot peg to get up off the floor, and while my back was turned, the LT fell right, into my car - no damage to the LT, but made a couple of minor dents in the car.
I then bought and installed the rear legs for the Condor, with the thought that it would make it much more unlikely to topple to the side. That worked great for a while, until the GTLE fell to the left into a workbench, still in the Condor. I have since bolted the Condor firmly to the concrete floor and don't anticipate any further problems, barring a major earthquake.
