I'm going to make one of these in the new year, there's enough detail in the pics to see how it goes together but is there any improvements to be made on the design?

Anyone that has made one (Kbasa?) have any comments on obvious shortcomings or improvements to the design?

One obvious (to me) addition is a front wheel support /chock system (proprietary steel thingy where the front wheel sits between tubing guides and sits on an over centre cradle) so the bike can simply be rolled on without the need to apply a stand. I want to use it for road and off road bikes as well as road race bikes without having to stuff around with stands to get the bike stable.

Any advice would be welcome.
