    Kickstand for Lowrider

    Anyone know if theres such thing as a 5-6" kickstand? 8" seems to be the smallest I can find online. The pedals work for now but when my new ones come in, I don't want to be scratching them on pavement.

    Even lowrider bike websites don't have em, what the hecks up with that?

    Make your own...Mount one and cut it (hack saw) to whatever length you need. Leave a little extra. Heat the tip with a propane torch to red hot, then bend slightly on an anvil (hammer).

    Tubus has one that adds to their lowrider racks, this year, check with like touring store http://www.thetouringstore.com/index.htm
    to see if they are exported from Germany Art.-Nr: 73000 http://tubus.com/en/spares-and-accessories

    My Koga Miyata WTR in '04 came with a modified Tubus Ergo
    with a KS attached to the lower left of the rack..

    Thanks for the replies.
    I didn't want to mess up the color by heating and don't have a torch, so I improvised a bit with a socket and a shiny bolt instead of bending it.

    i would guess no one makes them 'cause when someone makes a lowrider for theirself there's no set height. a manfacturer would have to make them in 1/2" increments or something.

    on a couple i just cut the kickstand down and welded a fender washer to the bottom to help with stability.
