Need a Double Kickstand for Dahon P8
 
I carry about 10-40lb of bags to my job and the cute little short kickstand
becomes a pivot point when loaded, meaning, the bike will fall over.

Is there a kickstand that supports both sides like a motorcycle?

thx

Here's one:

Though, you might want to check the BB height of the P8 and compare it to the specs at hebie.de

The bike stands straight up. I've used one on my loaded Surly LHT on tour -works well.

My cheapo crappy folder came with one and I love it, never falls over even with my load of dog, books, groceries etc or wind. And an added bonus, you can use it as a quick work stand, tip the bike forward to rest on front wheel and work on back, tip back to work on front wheel. Mine is steel and probably weighs a gazillion ounces but it works unlike bike kickstands that fall over with the smallest breeze or load.
