This makes sense. I have a feeling something is missing from the story IMO
Nah, you can believe what you want and use your Condor however you want. It really doesn't matter to me.
In the end, if it were me and I was going to use a Condor to keep my bike in over the winter, or for long periods of time, I would most definitely anchor it even more now knowing that something as simple as an under inflated tire could cause it to move and possibly fall over.

I really don't get why it's such a big deal that I suggested you consider making something more secure. To each his own I guess....

I have a Condor wheel chock and it works good but I find it can be a real pain to pull the bike back out of.


I have used it for years and never once thought it was not secure enough

I would be skeptical of a bike docked in the Condor just falling over as well, I have had both my RG and SG docked in the condor chalk in the garage and neither have ever fallen over. The only way I could fathom this happening is that the cradle for the wheel is not adjusted for the correct size wheel.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in
a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming --WOW -- " What a ride!!!

I've not got anything fancy and after seeing the tip overs you guys got me a little nervous lol. I used a couple 2x6s, a one inch strip, and some black pipe to make a little "lift/stand". Pretty much to keep weight off tires and it helps for little things when I need the bike to be level. I've used it for 4 years now with no issues. I cant take credit for it, it's not the spawn of my mind. I found the plans lurking on another forum.

(Dont mind the clutter) pics aren't great but they show it in action.

That's just a homemade version of what shops used to use 20yrs ago. Worked great for at the time for what it was but more that one guy got smacked real hard from that bar if the bike moved.

Love my Condor

Have it mounted to my lift (Horrible Freight). I always just ride in, up and get off. I tie it down to the lift because I leave it there. Also have the HF version but I find that the tire is hard to fit properly and often gets stuck (need to pry it out). Never happens on the Condor. Really nice product.
