Peltscher Double Kickstand on Surly Disc Trucker

Hello, Iím ordering a Peltscher Double Legged Kickstand for a Surly Disc Trucker. I will be using Surlyís new Kickstand plate. Iíve heard the bolt that comes with the Kickstand will be too long with this this combination and that I will need a shorter bolt to properly install the Kickstand to the bike using Surlyís plates. Has anyone else encountered this, if so, how short or long should the bolt be? What size is the bolt? Wanna make sure I have everything I need when it gets here. Thank you!

A too-long bolt can be shortened pretty easily.

How would you do this? Cut it I imagine? What tools would you use?

surly makes kick stand adapter plates.. they add to the thickness

How would you do this? Cut it I imagine? What tools would you use?
Reads like mechanics may not be your skill set you may be wanting to find someone to do it for you..

bench vise to hold the work,

the bolt .. a nut that fits that bolt , screwed on past where you will cut, to clear the threads after its cut,

and a hacksaw, can you use one and cut fairly straight?

and some metal files to clean up burrs and roughness after the cut is done and the nut is unscrewed, clearing the threads..



2 bolts , the cap screw and a hex head bolt. are typically with Esge Kickstands

....

A bolt that big, a hacksaw would be best. Rivendell sells that bolt for buck but that seems like more trouble than it's unless you ordered something else.

They're actually pretty easy to buy small stuff from (they'll first class it), but that bolt is something that any bike shop, save one that caters ONLY to high-end road, mountain, or tri, will carry. The Greenfield clamp-on model (a straight copy of the ESGE/Pletscher, right down to the mm markings on the kickstand) uses the same bolt.

Any hardware store will have a properly sized bolt. Wait till it comes, and measure. Easy peasy!

Agree with all of this except that make sure you do not clamp ANY portion of the thread in the vise. bobber, you hit the nail, he may not be familiar with mechanical stuff(s), so just a reminder* to hold the bolt in the vise by the head or you can place a thin piece of wood on either side of the jaws, then clamp the threads within the wood itself.



*for him

When cutting a bolt, I typically clamp it by the threaded portion that is on the waste side. I first run a nut down on the bolt. After the cut, this nut will clean up the threads a bit.
