Recommended Wheel Chocks

I've used the "Bike Grab" ( http://www.bikegrab.com/ ) with multiple bikes and varying tire widths. Excellent product, but pricey. You get what you pay fore. My Brother uses an LA Chock ( http://www.baxleycompanies.com/ )which he loves and easily swapped from trailer to garage and finally, a couple buddies have the Condor Chock ( http://www.condor-lift.com/ ) and sware by it.

I think all three of these chocks have great reputations and you will have to shop around for the best deal. Avoid buying the cheap no-name product off Ebay. I made that mistake which resulted in wasted time and money.

Thumbs up Wheeldock works for me

I have been very happy with the Wheeldock I purchased for my enclosed trailer. I do not see much written about it on this site. It is portable so it can be removed from the trailer and placed in the garage. It is easily re-anchored in the trailer with removable pins and locks the front wheel in place with a mechanical process that requires more than a push. The Wheeldock can be exited by pushing the bike back and does not require the bike to be put in reverse to back out over a hump once the locking bar is reset. You can research at http://www.wheeldock.com/default.asp but I think it is better than the tubular and sheet stock construction.

Where do you live? I can fab up a couple that will fit the area and tires perfectly. Put the bolt points on the frame rails for good security. Include front tie down points in the chock design. Should be able to do both for a $100. You can do the painting.

If you are far away, check out a local welding fabricator. Half these guys have bikes and will do a great job for a good price.
