i've heard the same from many bike stores: DO NOT INSTALL A KICKSTAND
Why not? I was looking to order a Pletchser two-leg kickstand for my Thorn Sherpa, but now I have been told by Thorn that "Voids Thorn frame warranty, may crush thin walled chainstays if the bike is heavily loaded or leaned on"
So can anyone suggest an alternative?
I recall seeing a prop pole or something? can anyone give me more info or a link please?
