    Cool kickstand

    I'm planning to purchase a couple of these for an upcoming tour. I love 'em so I thought I would share:

    The owner, designer and producer of that little device posts in these forums quite often as well. I believe he is packing up shop for 6 weeks while he is on holiday in europe.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the interest in Click-Stand. It is such fun to see someone else mention a Click-Stand instead of just shameless me! Please, give one a try. If it doesnít make you happy, send it back.

    Shiznaz is right. I do have to shut the shop down for six to seven weeks. It is terrible timing. I can take orders from those on the Forum up until April 30th. After that I might not get them made & shipped. I will be gone from May 3 until mid June. Sadly, it is not a cycling tour.

    Tom

    Whew. My bike should be in by the 19th, that gives me enough time to measure. I'd be bummed if I couldn't put an order in before my tour.

    I just ordered two-for my wife also. Thanks for sharing. I am sure this will score a lot of points w/ business owners who are tired of touring bikes leaning against their windows and store fronts.

    Tom had mine shipped to me the next day. Thanks, Tom. Have a wonderful time in Italy! Since you're not biking, you have lots of opportunity to taste the wonderful red wines there.

    What's the advantage over something like the ESGE double leg which requires nothing more than a swipe of the foot?

    I guess it won't void your Thorn bike warranty, plus it means you don't have a kick stand strapped to your bike if you're afraid of looking nerdy or having it rattle around. Its also lighter and probably cheaper, and could be used to hold up a tarp or for other uses. More work to use than a regular kickstand, but not really much more work.

    I do have a question for people with double legged stands such as an Esage. Double legged stands donít lean when parked on level ground, which is good for loaded bikes, but how well do they work on a slope? Iíve never seen, so I really would like to know.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    IME, poorly. I had the ESGE on my franken-mtb (mtb with a rack and semi-slick tires) for a while, went back to a traditional kickstand. I may have over-cut it though, due to inexperience. (especially since I went from 1.5" tires back to 2" tires - much better for the lousy rear-heavy weight distribution on that bike)

    I just bought a click-stand for my new LHT, and (at least with a quick test) it seems much better than the ESGE stand, and about a pound and a half lighter. The ESGE stand is HEAVY, and I am not a weight weenie, but it's over a pound and a half for something that you only use when not moving. The click-stand (touring/tandem model, sized for a 62cm bike) was only 104g on the kitchen scale, plus a few grams for the parking bands.

    For those looking for LHT complete photos - I'll take them when my build is 100% finished. Bike rides great, still waiting for the fenders to show up at the LBS though.
