Kickstand for Rockhopper Frame

Greetings !

I know that a kickstand does not belong on a real bike of any sort, just being extra weight to be carried every kilometer (or mile) and something extra to foul on the underbrush, but I picked up a dual disk 2017 RockHopper Sport 29r aluminum frame to build into a road bike and I noticed that it has a boss built into the left rear chain stay for bolting on a two-bolt proprietary Specialized kickstand.

I suspect that anyone who ever bought a RockHopper 29er to ride seriously and found a kickstand on it likely instantly unbolted it and tossed it, thinking "Well, thats one piece of crap that will never be used again." I am not even sure what vintage this frame is, but I'm hoping that someone here will recognise the chain stay from the pictures below and find a RockHopper kickstand for the bike in their junk bin.

Anyone got one I can put to good use ? I can pay postage... plus a reasonable amount for the desired piece of crap.

Binky

Yes I did, and found the one and only side stand (Specialized Part No. 9899-3002) that looks like it might be what I want -- but I have a 2017 RockHopper Sport 29r frame and the website says it fits

Hi. Did you end up figuring out how to put a kickstand on your rockhopper? Just got one for the wife and she wants one on it.

I just put an aluminum centre stand on it.

The next time I'm in the local shop that sells Specialized accessories, I'll ask if they have one...
