    Moulton TSR kickstand query

    Approaching two months of blissful TSR-2 ownership, I find myself occasionally in situations where a kickstand would be welcome. Examination of the bike's underbits reveals no mounting plate or dedicated holes in the chain stay. From this am right to conclude that, in addition a kickstand (say, like this), I need to purchase something like this (fourth item down from the top) to mount it?

    Any and all advice much appreciated.

    Lexm,

    Interesting. I have to say I don't think I have ever seen a TSR with a kick stand.

    Are you a member of the Yahoo Moulton forum ?

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/moultonbicycle/

    I am sure you would enjoy reading some of the postings there.

    Regards

    Jerry

    Lexm,

    The same question was just asked on the forum link and a few options were posted, but also a warning about damage the tubing so not sure if it would be wise to fit one.

    However someone just posted this which is a neat alternative

    Theres a tent pole like one , shock corded tubes snap together
    and there's a U shaped end to hook onto stuff up top
    to fit under your saddle, a frame tube or wherever..

    I am monitoring this thread to see what suggestions are made, but I'm not sure how well a click-stand would work with a Moulton since there is not traditional top tube.

    I haven't piped up with the kickstand I have used... it clamps to the left chain stay. OK for propping up an unloaded bike. Works quite OK. On smallwheelers, the outer adjustable portion can be ditched for a more elegant look, just cut it to the right length and put a rubber tip on.

    I do have a Pletscher Zoom on my TSR 2. Works very well. To prevent damaging the stays, you may want to consider the "deluxe top plate" as seen on Thor's website.

    Haven't used a kick stand since 1976, didn't know they still made them.

    Hi, I ride a Moulton APB and use a rear mounted Greenfield stand.
    Heres a pic from when I first mounted it and before I cut it down by 5cm.
    I'm happy with it.
