Esge Pletscher ............. if too long just cut an inch or two off ...
Question is why you want a double ? To keep the bike upright with stuff hanging off the corners ?
I am asking as most doubles are somewhat cheap and dont have a wide enough stance, the Pletscher does ..but its not cheap

Hebie is another one , it does not come over to the left side , with both legs
like Esge Pletscher.. so how it integrates with your rig is an unknown..
on the other there is a hinge, and the U of legs stay as they are, just folded up and back.

I got this one for my wife's Downtube Nova and was surprised how bulky and heavy it was. It went to the vendor the next day.

Double Leg Kickstands

The kickstand that came with my Schwinn is way too short. The bike barely stays up so if I'm going to order a new one might as well get one that props it up. I plan to have my camera bag attached to the rack so I'd like to avoid a tip over.
