Do the CycleQuad's fit in a 220R chassis?  That's a main part of the 
issue.  I want to get it off
the floor and in the rack in my office.   I'm trying to clean up in here 
(it's a mess) and going vertically
is the only way out.  I've got a vaulted ceiling in here, so plenty of "up" 
room.  Though the first rack
is getting a bit "full"....thinking of going with another one, and taking 
out the 6 foot table and putting
in a 4 foot one.  One rack on either side....
