Does your CX have a mounting plate for a kickstand? If so, I think the best one you can get is the Esge Twin
kickstand. Otherwise, a standard one will work.
The bad thing about regular kickstands is that the bike is long and the triangle formed by the two wheels and the kickstand is pretty narrow. You're walking the tightrope between leaning the bike enough so it won't tip over the other way, and leaning it too much. The double-legged stand is much more stable - plus it acts as a maintenance stand for when you're fixing a rear tire or adjusting your derailleurs.
