    As seen elsewhere on TGT, I'm back on the street / road bike scene after a decades long (more than 2 :( ) hiatus and need help from you old hands.

    My 1st issue, I need to maneuver an @700lb bike in tight quarters on a concrete slab.

    I think this is what I want:

    But the ads I've seen say they are asking +$200 for it; I AIN'T gonna pay it!

    Harbor Frieght has this for $99:

    But I've seen it used and it's too cumbersome & bulky.

    Does anyone know where I can get the center stand dolly for <$99?

    Thanks Dave. I see only one size for the $64 Venom and I just read all the reviews; there were several caster failures and 1 or 2 mentioned the plate flexing, all with bikes my size which is over the 500# rating. I'm not gonna risk that.

    I'm trying, at my advanced age, confusion is a frequent visitor. And sometimes the SOB doesn't want to leave.
