I had a joist and some thick new floorboards left from re-building the conservatory floor so I made a ramp to put the bikes up on when working on them. It's only 10 inches high but it makes a big difference. The X9 pushes up fairly easily then use the electric stand to prop it up. There is an extension piece that comes off so the rear wheel can be in free air if you reverse it up or the front if you push it up normally. I used it to fit some nice chromed Honda rear shockers but they are 290mm long which is 20mm longer than standard and although it looks and rides nice, they make the seat a bit tall so will probably be changed for lower ones. They weren't expensive and came from Germany in 4 days.

Good thinking. Like a balance beam for bikes.
