    Hi. Can anyone recommend a wheel chock stand for my van. Needs to be able to take 17" and 21" wheels please?
    I'd did borrow one from a mate but found the blade front got stuck in it, making it a bit dodgy to remove the bike in the van.
    Cheers broadie

    I've got one of these, really heavy duty with soft rubber feet that grip the van floor, providing your van floor is not all dusty and full of crap!

    I paid a bit less for mine, nearer 50 quid mark. A search on eBay will find you the one you need. ;)

    I’ve got a bumpstop one (got mine off eBay secondhand, seem a bit pricey new) you can adjust it for different wheels, they come with some extra wide plates too if your not bolting it down, but can’t remember where I’ve put mine :rolleyes:. I used it when I kept my bike in a shed so I could just push it in and didn’t need a rear stand.

    Got holes in the upright bit at front so you could bolt it to bulkhead or rig something up.

    Jesus wept, £380 for a few bits of stock welded together. I've seen some expensive shit but that really takes the biscuit o_O:D

    I got an entire trailer for that much.

    Didn't intend it to be a criticism of you, apologies. Unless it's your company, obviously ;)

    Does look a decent bit of kit but a simple wheel chuck woukd suffice for use in a van?! ;)

    none taken mate, I’ve used this guys stuff and find it the best I’ve seen and used, if you have the tools to make the same and powder coat it then good on you.
    I personally wouldn’t put a 10 to 20 k bike on a 50 quid stand but understand everyone has a budget so each to there own

    I brought a bike back from paisley(Glasgow to Buckinghamshire ) on one of these and didn’t even have to strap it down so wouldn’t use anything else now

    Thanks guys. Bought 2 " BikeTek" off eBay for £65.50. exactly the same as the warrior but in black works fine on both bikes. If they need to be stiffened I can always take the welder to them. But seem more than good enough for now.
