Centre kickstand for Genesis Tour de Fer?

Hi (first post here :-),

in the grand scheme of things, I am considering building a custom Genesis Tour de Fer as a do-everything bike for commuting and 2-week EU tours. I will have tons of other questions on the Touring forum in near future, but the issue at hand currently is: does anyone has experience with kickstands mounted to TdF?

I own a CdF and there is no place for a kickstand unless I would use one of the chainstain-crushing ones. But it seems that TdF has a plate at the bottom bracket that should take a centrally-mounted kickstand (e.g. https://www.pletscher.ch/index.php/en/products-en/kickstands-en/center-kickstands-en). Could anyone please confirm?

Thanks a lot!

I will answer my own question as it might be useful for others. Yes, TdF has a centre plate between chainstains that will take a kickstand (CdF does not). I saw it online with someone else's bike first and then bought a frame and can provide a proof myself :-)
