    I haven't seen crome steel or carbon fiber if that's what you're looking for but every bike store can put on an inexpensive one for $10 that clamps to the chain stays - is this the type you dislike. I'd just go for the function and ignore the looks - never looks good on a good lookin bike anyway.

    I think a chrome one or a c/f kick stand would kick ass, I pick up a clamp one from nashbar but I am afraid it will crimp the Al.
    Any suggestion

    Thanks

    There will be no problem as long as you are only supporting an unloaded bike. I mention this because you described the bike as a "tourer", and I don't know if you have racks on it or not. Of course, if it doesn't physically fit the frame, don't even attempt it.
    It is my belief that every person in this world has something to teach, and everything to learn.

    Before I learned to do without the kickstand (and love doing so), I used the kind that clamps to the chain stay and seat stay, very near to the dropout. You can add padding to the clamps and IMO there is very little chance of crushing anything. They are more stable than the traditional stand. There are several brands out there, or at least the was, each with different angles (seat stay to chainstay angles), so sometimes you have to get the one that fits your bike best.

    The website airbomb.com has a few. Here's a double kickstand that might fit the bill:
