Are there any taller/bigger side plate side stands I can buy, in case I decide to not use a hockey puck?
I have had good success with the hockey puck. I used a single bolt up from the bottom with a locking nut on it. Its been on for almost 30,000km with no issues. I recessed the bolt head in the bottom so as not to scratch if I parked on a delicate surface like a tiled floor for example
