Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Will a kickstand fit on a Wabi Classic? I've tried one of those double leg types but it was a no go. Does anyone ride with a kickstand on there F.G.?

The only bike I would run a kickstand on is a bike heavy enough to need it and generally something with racks and fenders that I might be loading often. My e-bike has a kickstand and that is it. It is very rare on any of my other bikes would i need a kickstand and it is just weight, something else to go wrong and a poor design. The rear mounted two bolt kickstands are great but typically only found on e-bikes and Scott for a while had a kickstand for their SUB bikes which was mid mount but was two bolt and cleanly tucked into the frame so it wasn't just a loose flopper.

Greenfield in the end makes a decent quality product but the 1 bolt design is just terrible and it is not their fault nor any other kickstand brand it is just the way things ended up instead of saying hey let's standardize two bolts and charge an extra $1 and make it easy for everyone.
