I read a product review in the current Roadracing World and ordered a ProAligner. I have been pulling strings for years to check alignment. But, getting a good alignment with strings is a time consuming, tedious process and this looks like it may save time. It’s a lot cheaper than the laser systems on the market and small enough to carry in a tool bag to the track. I will post up my impressions once I use it.

I may be having a brain fart, but how does it work? I don't get it!
A bit like using open sights on a rifle. Sight down the side of the tire to the scale resting against other tire.
Current method for aligning:
It takes more than a few minutes

String is a bit fussy...
I have a piece of 30mm square aluminium tube. I just hold that against the rear tyre and check the gap to the front, it's very quick.
With a 180 rear and 120 front, the gap should be close to 30mm each side, so I have glued an extra piece of the 30x30 square to the side, which makes it even easier.
