Outfitting Breezer Doppler
 
I just got a new 2018 Breezer Doppler Cafe this week. I was told by my LBS that a kickstand cannot be fitted due to the hydraulic line and derailleur cable running under the bottom bracket and due to the disc brake rotors on the rear triangle. I am really wanting the Pletcher dual leg kickstand. Anybody ever install one on a Doppler?

Also need front and rear rack ideas for getting groceries and hauling things from stores. No touring is in my plans for now. Axles are 12mm through axles if that matters.

Need a good solid rear view mirror too.

Thanks!

You'd have to flip the bike over and give us a picture of the area behind the bottom bracket for us to judge the ability to mount a kickstand- you can often move the tubing out of the way of the kickstand clamp, im.surprised tjats the reason it can't be mounted. But it's not uncommon for there to be a reason a kickstand won't fit. And yeah, a rear triangle kickstand won't work there.

I'm not well versed on racks for thru axle bikes, but there are racks that mount through your rear thru axle, maybe a front thru axle too. Your rear has typical rack mounts, but the eyelets above the rear rack are kinda high (they're probably just intended for the mudguards. The eyelets halfway up the fork are great points for mounting front racks, but it will also need to connect at the front thru axle, or at the bolt/hole that I assume exists right above the front tire, where the fork meets.

If there's a threaded eyelet down by the front axle and a hole in the fork crown, a Wald basket (137 or 139) on a Soma Lucas front rack makes a nice grocery holding system. I have the basket zip tied to the rack.

Thank you! I'll do some research on racks. Found a good thread here on mirrors so I can get one ordered. I may order the kickstand and see if I can make it work. If not I can always sell it.
