    Kickstand Extenter

    I didn't know where to put this thread so I put it here. Does any one know of where to get or how to make a kickstand extender? I need to add about an inch. My bike is top-heavy now and I need it a little more upright. I am considering a new, adjustable one but until then I want to extent mine.
    Thanks

    Hmmmmm, that just might work. I think it would extent it enough and have a bigger "foot" so it doesn't sink into the soft ground. I'll have to get a couple and see. Thanks no1mad.

    if you can get some small diameter steel tubing
    in a size that has a very tight fit over your existing kickstand
    and hammer a length on to it and cut off to the length you want

    Bike: 2000ish(?)Trek Bruiser 3, monster of a bike

    Owner of LBS used a greenfield rear mount kick(with some modifications, LOTS of mods used on this bike), and used steel tubing(plus cap/foot) to put a kick on a bike that was not meant for town use at all, much less to have a kick stand. It makes a great "urban assault vehicle" though, and is his main winter rig(thanks to studded tires).

    the foot bolts to the aluminum upper bart , so by moving the bolts and nuts to alternate holes you adjust the length..

    if you saw off most kickstands , they wont grow back .
    though welding aluminum on may help.

    but Greenfield KS are only $10. retail..
