Rear Mount Kickstand

Hello,

I recently purchased a 15.5" Marlin 6 and 15.5 Skye LS both with hydraulic disc brakes. I am wondering if I can mount the Greenfield rear mount kickstand to the chain stay/seat stay? I am concerned that the hydraulic disc brake mechanism on the seat stay might interfere with mounting the kickstand. Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks!

I can't give you a specific answer, but I can help you find the answer for yourself.

The kickstand uses an adapter bracket that bridges the chain and seat stays. The key for you is the distance between those where the bracket attaches. I don't know it offhand, but you can visit your local shop with a small ruler, and measure that distance on the bracket, then compare that to your bike to know where the stand needs to mount, and confirm whether or not the brake is in the way.

I have a Greenfield stabilizer on my bike, but not disc brakes. All I can say is that looking at the picture it would appear that the bracket for the Greenfield Stablizer should mount past the radius of the brake disc. Should, but I can't say for sure. Perhaps you could visit a bike store and see if they'd let you see if it'd work, and if so then buy one?

NEW bikes have been getting a mount in the Chainstay for a rear mount KS, that uses 2 5mm bolts.. Trek is selling some
Pletcher in switzerland makes several types [Maybe Riv nuts can be set to use those]

If it'd help, I can measure mine when I get home tonite. I can also give you to measurements on the fiancée's Bontrager rearmount.

In the meantime, I'd offer my happiness of the product, which holds my touring bike with full bags without wobble.

Are we to assume that your fiancee doesn't follow bike forums?

She picked her touring bike because it was pink and purple and had a kangaroo headbadge, I'll let you figure the answer to that

Then again, she impulse bought a pretty solid deal on her Specialized road bike, so maybe she is around here without my knowledge!

Thanks everyone. Jefnvk I wouldn't mind knowing the dimensions from the Bontrager. I did order (2) of the Greenfield rear mount stabilizers. I like to support the "made in the USA" manufactures when I can so I hope they fit. If not Trek has a Bontrager product number W327235 that they verified will work.

I measured approx 4.1" length and .8" width on the Bontrager, and 2.25" length and 1.3" width on the Greenfield

Greenfield:

Thanks Jefnvk! It looks like the Greenfield is going to be tight if it does fit. The Bontrager is probably the better fit. Thank you for taking the time and posting these pictures.

No worries. I'm still on the bottom side of absorbing more info than I give out, so when I see an opportunity to help, I choose to give back!

I'd say just from a general glance, the Bontrager was designed with a disc in mind. I still prefer the Greenfield, I don't like the adjustable foot of the Bontrager over solid steel, but both feel confident and decent quality. Best of luck to you!

As much as I wanted the Greenfield product it didn't reach across to the seat stay. So I will wait until this weekend to see if the Bontrager product fits.

Click stand carries like that too, U support goes further up on the frame, they can support a loaded touring bike..

I did look, 'Up stand' seems for weight weenies on racing, road bikes..
