Yes, done properly, the bike is more stable with the wood method. I've done both.


I have used the "wood" method for a couple of years now, very stable even though I never thought of the Velcro strap on the brake. I just blocked the front wheel. The Velcro will be so superior, thanks for that idea. I may have thought of it eventually but sometimes my mind just can't get outside the box until someone else opens the box for me.

Excellent first post c2.
The wood is good but now I've spoiled myself with the centerstand.

I already had these car axle stands & they work fine for now. My centre stand is on order & is the best way, wherever you are.
