Axle mounted kickstand instructions

I recently bought this type of axle mounted kickstand but since it is unlike the simple ones shown on the Dutch utility bikes I can't figure out how to install it. Spooky Tooth did not send instructions nor did their rep know.! Can anyone tell me how to mount this....yes i know it goes on the real axle but I need pics.......also i have a bike with deraileeur. thanks in advance.....

may not be derailleur,QR hub , compatible.

+ a side profile view is more useful than your leaning it against the wall shot.

got a 3 speed Ig hub bike to fit it on, instead?

axle mounted kickstand

This is the only bike I really wanted it for...my comfort bike now turned motorized. It needs this substantial kickstand to prevent the constant falling over it does while I load my battery and necessities. This is the only type of this nature i can find..a taiwanese knockoff with no instructions.

go to a machine shop, maybe they can make some parts to adapt the mount with some special made parts.

Or take the stand and the bike to a framebuilder and have the frame modified to take your loop stand.

[NB, Flash didn't work, that picture is against too dark a background to be seen]

have you considered a central mounted Swiss made Esge 2 legged Kickstand ?

I had a more substantial rear wheel prop stand built as a part
of my loaded touring bike

It was built integrated, as a part of the original frame build.
