Bob "kick stand"

I had several folks ask me for details on my bob kick stand. It's not my original idea, and I had no "plans" I winged it. My 1st one was 1/2 PVC but found it to not be strong enough for my taste, so I went with 3/4 inch PVC, and 1 inch for the tees.





Detail photos below.

I have a BOB and I am wondering why you need one?

I just do the fold and the bike and trailer are parked.

Just curious.

I don't like he stress on the bike or the loading/ unloading with the fold method this is much easier
