I've got a rear-mount kickstand on my Cannondale T800 that was installed when the bike was new about 11 years ago. I'd like to get another to install on my wife's new Cannondale T1 (yeah, I'd like the new T1, but it was HER T800 that was stolen....). I know there's lots of debate about rear-mount kickstands on aluminum frames, but the one I have works fine the way we use the bikes. Does anyone recognize the brand? All I see on the stand are four very stylized characters inside an oval, and I'm not even sure whether I'm reading it right side up or down. The first character looks like a circle with a pie-slice wedge cut from the top. The next character looks like a reversed "D". The third character is a rather flattened "0". The final character is a "D" in normal orientation. Of course, this could all be read from upside down, which changes the game entirely! Does this sound familiar to anyone, please? Thanks.
