    Kickstand Recommendations?

    Hi,

    I use my bike for grocery shopping and the kickstand is not very stable when the bike is loaded with groceries which makes loading and unloading tricky.

    Can anyone recommend a kickstand that will keep a bike loaded with groceries steady? I am hoping to find something that will work well but not be too expensive.



    Thanks

    This type works well for me. I have something similar on a couple of my bikes and they are very stable.

    Have these on by two touring bikes one 26" one 700c, incredibly stable. These fold up onto the nondrive chainstay side, cool enginering. Comes in black as well, but, alas...sort of heavy:

    I have this one http://www.amazon.com/Pletscher-Two-.../dp/B001GSKVSG on my LHT and find that while loading I have to be careful about how I load each side or it falls over. This one looks more stable, similar to the Rolling jackass which I have on the Dummy and love. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...FKRFWGE9HF65AF

    I've used that exact model in your second link and find it much less stable than the Hebie clones I'm using now.
