The Bike - 2012 Salsa Vaya
The problem - no kickstand mounting plate. Disk brake limits rear triangle options. So I purchased and installed a double leg Pletscher, but there were three conflicts that together are too much of a compromise and may actually damage the chainstays. The first conflict is with the rear disk brake cable routing braise on. It is right where the top plate for the kickstand crosses that chainstay (non drive side - on top of the stay). I cut the corner off the plate, but that is when I noticed the other two conflicts. Conflict two is minor, but involves the front derailler cable touching/rubbing on the kickstand plate. Conflict three, and the most problematic is a conflict with the lower part of the kickstand itself where it touches the rear derailer cable (that travels from under the BB and below the driveside chainstay). With the kickstand installed the cable must travel around the kickstand in an odd angle, compromising rear shifting.
I know I could go without one and have on most bikes for 30 years. However, this is my commuter/tourer/grocery getter that I like to use a stand for. I also pull a BOB trailer and an upright bike is quite important when loaded. If the bike leans too much the whole rigs topples over. Very difficult to right after that.
So, any other stands that might work? I may put a small stand on the BOB as I have seen on this forum, but I would still like one for just the Vaya.
