Wheel Chock Recommendations

Can anyone point me in the direction of a decent front wheel chock to mount in my trailer?

Looking to spend $100 or less. I dont want harbor freight quality but dont need the $$$$$$ Baxley Sport Chock system either...

Any favorites I should consider?

i have a HF one and its seen loads of use and never had an issue but i also strap my bike down properly so the chock is really only there to help hold the bike before strapping it down and after removing the straps

I know you said you don't want to hear it but the HF ones are good. I've had 2 mounted to an open flatbed utility trailer I used for my bike hauler for years. They are exposed to the weather all the time and have been flawless. I've hauled everything from my '12 Concours14 to a Ninja 250.

I also have one like Jkester92 has and the issue I have with it that tire sticks to the large flat areas of the chock making it very difficult to get the bike out of it especially after had been tied down or if the tires were warm when the bike was put in it (i.e. at the end of a track day) I actually bolted a piece of automotive carpet to mine to prevent this from happening. It helps a little.

Just my $0.02 after having hauled many, many bikes for a lot of miles.

I have 4 Baxleys and 2 HF ones. The Baxleys are worth the money in my opinion. The HF ones work Ok but if you try a Baxley I am pretty sure you will want one... I need to sell my HF ones (cheap!) at some point as I don't use them any more.

Thanks for the feedback. I ended up getting the roll in one from Cycle Gear. After seeing reports that the front wheels can stick, I intend to line the front part with some black fabric. (like the kind you wrap a subwoofer box in)

That will work well. The tire will also stick to the part that pivots but it should not be a big issue if you bolt down the chock.

it would take you like ten minutes to make one out of a single 6-foot 4x4 and a couple of screws.

That's what I did so it would match my bike.

HF with $0.03 cent expansion pins to replace the “cotter-pins” that fall out & use as intended with impunity.
Note: Dismounting easy from left side of bike with left foot standing on the leading edge of chock. Reaching over to the bars then grabbing the front brake, compress the forks while releasing the brake on rebound along with a tug. Easy

Allow me to ask a stupid question (I've never used chocks in the garage). Do chocks have sizes? I am assuming a 120 tread will be OK in these?
