Need rear mounted kickstand that doesn't interfere with disk brake.

I used to have a Greenfield stand that worked well holding my bike with loaded panniers. My newer bike has disk brake hardware between the seatstay and chainstay where the stand would fit.

Yesterday I saw a stand (Avenir) that bolts to the axle and braces against the chainstay of a cheaper bike; won't work with quick release. Amazon has a POS that attaches only to the chainstay; terrible reviews. I see some for MTBs but only up to 26" wheels. I saw an image of one that appears to bolt THROUGH the chainstay; God forbid!

Does anybody know of a good quality stand that attaches to the chainstay of a bike with 700c wheels?

There's actually a standard for having holes in the chain stay to mount a kickstand to.

I've got some adjustable thing that fits, barely, on my bike with a 140 mm rotor. It came from a bike store; they had several different sorts, we put the bike on the work stand, and I bought the one that worked. The first they tried didn't.

Giant Roam/Seek kickstand.

Works great with rear disc brakes/panniers.

This is what I bought for my new disc-brake bike:
http://www.amazon.com/TOPCABIN-Bicyc...ords=kickstand
I have had a couple of problems with it. First it doesn't grip the chainstay securely enough, so it has "rotated" a couple of times and led to the bike falling. (luckily I park inside on carpeting at work, and at home the bike can't fall over due to parking between my other two bikes) I'm afraid to tighten it too much and damage the chainstay. However, my chainstay is roundish, and this is designed to work better with a "flattish" chainstay.
Secondly, the screw that adjusts the length of the leg is fairly useless. It repeatedly loosened up causing the bike to fall, and a couple of times the leg fell off while I was riding. I remedied this by finding a steel bolt whose head fit inside the channel and used a locking washer and bolt.
I guess I've gone about 6 months without a problem, but if and when it fails again, I'm gonna replace it.
I understand what you want, because on my older MTB-based commuter I have a kickstand that clamps across where the chainstay and seat stay meet and even with the rear baskets loaded with groceries and my commuter backpack on the rack the bike stays upright and secure. The chainstay-only kickstand would'nt "stand" a chance. with that weight.

Would something like this help, or are you talking about attachment to one chainstay only?

Does it have to be rear mounted? My disk brake commuter has a plain old Greenfield clamped to the chain stays up by the bottom bracket. Does your frame have space there?

I have Bontrager's rear-mount kickstand on my touring bike, and it's very sturdy even when the bike is loaded up. It clamps (with protective plastic/rubber pieces) onto the chainstay and seatstay to form a bracing structure which arcs in such a way as to allow clearance for most disc rotors.

Here's the current version of it, with a better clamp design compared to the older one (seen below), along with adjustable length:



Here's a picture of the older version of the kickstand on my previous disc-equipped commuter:
