    Downtube-ish / Kickstand

    I saw this bike on the Flickr a few mins ago. It has a frame that's very similar to the Downtube 9FS, and the forks of a Birdy. Does anyone know what it is?

    There are are more photos from his photostream here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kaminero/

    Specifically, I'm hoping to be able to order the kickstand from it for my Downtube 9FS. If anyone has any ideas where to get a similar kickstand for the 9FS, or any kickstand that's easy to install without modding the bike frame, I'd love to hear it.

    Thanks.

    I just saw a link to the larger photo on that bike, it looks like it's an actual birdy. I never realized before seeing that how similar the frames were to the downtube FS bikes before.

    That particular kickstand is for the Birdy with its 18" wheel so it would be too short for the 20" Downtube. Unless you are handy and could extend it. I have one which I took off mine, it is plain aluminium.

    What year is your 9fs? I have an '09 8fs and it now comes with a hole next to the BB. I was able to add a kickstand in that hole as my pix shows:



    This is a regular run of the mill height adjustable kickstand that you can buy at Sports Authority or Dicks. I believe the brand is Bell, but I'm not sure.
