Roll-on bike stands?

So I thought I would get one so as to save the up/down of the center stand when I park the GT in its shed.

I saw a great price at CycleGear and bought it. Taking it back tonight.

It was a big pain to get the bike to roll up on it. And once there there's no way I could get it off without help pulling on the back of the bike. The thing wedged my front tire in so hard that it literally came rolling up the tire when we pulled back with the fender acting as a scraper to peel it off the tire.

So I'm guessing the brace itself is too narrow for the tire.

Does anyone use such a rack/stand?
Suggestions?

Is it practical to use instead of the center stand? Meaning can I leave it for long periods of time?

Thanks.
Mike

I have the Condor which works well, but it is bolted down. I haven't tried it with it standing free.

Harbor Freight has a similar one much cheaper,

Can one just ride the bike onto the stand?

Condor also.

Condor is good just make sure it is bolted down or have someone stand on the ears when you try to pull the bike off of it. It will just slide along without something holding it in place.

I'm leaning toward the Titan Bulldog
http://www.mamotorworks.com/corvette...-64-10379.html

I found one cheaper than the Condor or the Baxley.....
Reason being is that their new design has the lock-down clip on the left side rather than on the right like the 'for sale' version.

The Titan chock looks like they tried to copy the Baxley design. It sounds like they haven't worked out the bugs yet if you found one cheaper because they have been redesigned. The Baxley is cheaper than what that website is listing the the Titan for and the Baxley design works. Let us know how you like the Titan if you get it.

+1 on a baxley. I have two. Absolutely awesome. I use mine in the garage and then lag bolt it to the trailer when towing. Spendy but worth every penny. There are a couple design changes from the older ones so if you buy used watch for that
