    Park n' Move - GRRRRRRR!!!!!!

    I just recently ordered one of these to solve some storage issues I have with my ST. What a letdown. Unmentioned anywhere on the site is the fact that you really need a polished/fully finished floor for this thing to work correctly. My floor is concrete, and while not billiard table smooth it is far from being rough or so I thought. I've almost tipped the bike over twice now, it seems the wheels get caught on the smallest imperfection in the floor or small pebble. The worst part of this is that included with the item is a printed info sheet with instructions AND their return policy. They'll take it back if I pay the freight and absorb a 15% restocking charge, which I am quite willing to do. Problem is they WILL NOT RESPOND to my emails. I guess they are just hoping I will go away now that they have my money. Lesson learned, buyer beware. It's gonna make a nice (albeit pricey) boat anchor.

    Can you fit casters with larger wheels onto it? Might make it a tad harder to get on the center stand but in doing so would probably make it usable.

    Just a thought...

    or you could possibly offer it for sale here to someone whose garrage floor is smooth.

    Pop off the casters, add a washer or two between the caster bolt and metal body on the Park'n Move, and "Bob's your Uncle!" You're good to roll...

    Received my Park n' Move today. I was a little apprehensive after reading this thread, but the Park n' Move works OK on my level, smooth (but not sealed) concrete garage floor. I started by using a leaf blower to clean out a couple of weeks worth of small yard debris. I agree with you that a little pebble could lock-up a wheel. Bottom line, it's not as effortless as their web site video showed, but it does reduce the effort it takes to get the beaST where I want her.

    +1 and I have to first put the bike up on 1/2 inch strips of wood to get it up on the stand. However as said above, it still helps.

    That is impressive. But is it just me or is that guy like 6'8" 320lbs? He would make turning a VW Jetta around by hand easy.

    +1. Easier to move around, and easier to get the bike on and off. Although it does take up a lot more room when the bike's not on it.
