Kickstand for a Bacchetta Giro 20 w/discs

Another question related to setting my new to me Bacchetta Giro 20 ... kickstand options. I am aware of the Calhourn Cycles 'Chetta Kickstand and the Bacchetta Kickstand (they seem to be the same and based on a Greenfield stabliser kickstand which I have used in the past on a trailer).

Does anyone have experience with either of these or other options for the Giro 20? I am particularly interested in how well the stands work with a loaded bike.

Thanks
Andrew

Not sure if something like this would work - chainstay mount that works well on other-than round shapes of tubing, adjustable length. Marketed in Canada as Q-Stand

Thanks for the suggestion but no chain-stays for it to attach to. Have decided to go with the Bacchetta kickstand for disc brakes. Will see how it works out.
