Aren't those bikes too heavy? Those things don't have a lot of vertical strength.
Like 100-150kg max if I remember correctly.

Pickup trucks typically have a max towbar down loading of 150- 300kg. Small cars are down to 75kg.

So I'm within my truck's the max loading.

CNC machine is just about there. Debugging Z axis... might be a direction cable issue for the Z stepper motor driven and then I can begin experimenting...
