No further than your hauling the bike its probably overkill. OTOH, can you be too careful taking the new pride and joy home the first time?

Good idea I dont think you can be to careful...

I used a baxley chock for years, I would recommend a canyon dancer in conjunction to take some of the stress off the front bearings. I found with the wheel locked in place you've got the whole weight of the bike swinging like a pendulum, it killed the bearings on a couple bikes before I added a canyon dancer,
