    need advice on double leg kickstand

    I'll probably also post this on the utility forum.

    I'm shopping for a double kickstand for my commuter. I'd like to try a Pletcher but they're too expensive for me. I'm looking at the Civia. Anybody used one of those?
    There's also the massload ones. Several models, including one that folds to the non drive side like the Pletcher and the one that just gets narrower when you fold it up. How about those?

    m-wave has a steel one that looks nice and is cheep but would that be way heavier than an aluminum one?

    There's also the one from crowcycleco.com that has button adjustable legs but the legs are plastic and I'm worried they might break easily.

    I have a Sunlight one on another bike and it's been fine. The chain slaps against it sometimes but it's great for when you have weight on the bike or a trailer.

    I'm looking for one that is stable, cheep, light(relatively) and maybe doesn't get hit by the chain.

    The Pletscher double is the bees knees. You have to pay for quality.

    +1 on the Pletscher.
    I assume you are looking for a double leg stand because you are carry a decent load on your bike? If so, this isn't the place to economize.
    I'm sure some of the others are OK, but the first time your bike falls over and wrecks your bars / brake levers / paint etc because you bought a cheap kickstand you'll wish you spent the extra $.

    I got mine for less with their sale at the end of last year, but I don't think these are all that expensive. Perhaps I've been riding a BMW motorcycle for too long.
