Kickstand Options

Hi, I just got a new 2011 Haro Flightline 3. I know its not recommended to have a kickstand on an mtb but I really need one because I have limited space in my basement and for other convenience reasons. I have looked on ebay and at performancebike.com but haven't really found anything that will work. The problem is that the frame is an odd shape and I can't find anything that looks like it will fit. Does anyone know of a kickstand that may fit my bike? I can post a picture of the bike if needed.

Thanks,
Cody

+1

Or flip it upside down. Or take the front wheel off and set it on its dropouts. None of those will cost any money, and none of them will get in the way on the trail.

Thanks for all of the input. Was hoping for an actual kickstand that stays connected to the bike but I may end up buying one of those wheel stands that JonnyV suggested.

Thanks,
Cody
