Nope!jamesxyz said:Can anyone recommend a good strudy kickstand for a touring bike - i.e. one that will keep it upright when fully loaded?
I would never guarantee it keeping the bike upright all the time, but on my hybrid/tourer I use a bipod stand. As long as it's on levellish ground it's more stable than a single kickstand. I still lean it against something sturdy if it's really laden though.jamesxyz said:Can anyone recommend a good strudy kickstand for a touring bike - i.e. one that will keep it upright when fully loaded?
I recently bought the exact same stand as you. I've only used it with a small amount of weight in my panniers so far, but it has worked very well.Fandango said:I have tried cheap stands and a motorbike type stand, which worked but I didn't like it much as the front swung about a bit. I finally settled on http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/product.asp?pf_id=18786 which I tried out from Dover to Lowestoft last week and it worked well. I weighed my gear and it came to 28KG which is just 2 KG under the max load, but the stand never seemed stressed - hard to tell until it crumples though. You do need to be careful where you use the stand - it needs level ground really, but so far so good.
That's a neat stand.PrettyboyTim said:I use the Pletscher twin-leg prop stand ( see http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/product-...Height-Over-290-mm--27-Inch-and-700c-1512.htm ) I prefer it to the Hebie one as the legs don't stick out when it folds up - both legs fold up under the left-hand chainstay.
