Just purchased a 2009 Specialized Sirrus Elite. The bike has carbon seat stays. It doesn't look like there is room for a kickstand in the normal place due to a cable and where the front of a rear fender would attach (not much room at all if any).
Also, the chain stay (not sure if I'm using the correct term) is curved versus straight, so not sure if one of those rear mount kick stands would work or not.
1) Can I attach a kickstand to my bike?
2) If so, what type/kind/model of kickstand would you suggest?
