Dual kickstand for trek 520

Looking for dual kickstand for my 520. I had a local bike shop order one in, but where it clamped on the bike, cable guide is in the way. I have seen photos of them on 520, but may be a different design (year). Just got my 520 a couple months ago. (New) Have a stand on back, loaded up my Bob, couple saddle bags on back, went for a ride for few days on rail trail. (Not totally level or paved) Ended up bending the bolts holding the stand on the bike. About 40 pounds on the Bob, 13 pounds in the bags. Any ideas is appreciated.

You Modify the Aluminum of the Esge 2 leg Kickstand, to create the cable path .. new direct mount Kickstand , has fittings in the frame ..

But [as you found] with a pannier load, it would be better to get a stronger heat treated steel bolt, the regular stainless steel is relatively soft..

+
Now, Tubus has a second kickstand You fit under the front pannier rack, as an accessory... its very useful holding up the bike with 4 panniers.
or just 2 up front.

and..
Click Stand makes (to measure) , for you, a folding pole prop stand ,you deploy , and fit its U tip under the top tube, & set the brakes with an elastic loop..
it works too ..

{they have a face book page featuring touring cyclist's bikes using it, around the globe)

Thanks, Click stand sounds interesting... I didn't see on their site, does it mount on the bike some how or do I just stick it somewhere convenient and grab it when needed? (As long as it is, could be a challenge.) I'm leaning toward modifying the frame mount for the dual... if I can without compromising the functionality. Thanks for the advice... when I figure out what I want, and try it, I'll post here and let you know how it worked out.

You might want to post a photo of the area of the 520's frame with the cable guide showing. Perhaps we can suggest a modification. I use the ESGE Twinn on a Bridgestone RB-T. Perhaps some judicious grinding of the stand where it interferes?

He (it's just 1 guy) custom makes them to a length you measure and supply. , like a tent pole, they are sectional
with an elastic cord thru the tubing .. to snap to full length,
it's carry mount would, perhaps, be along side a water bottle cage, ?
A road/mountain Morph pump alongside another bottle cage mount?

I recently ground away a part of the ESGE kickstand mount for the same reason. It works fine now, and is nice and sturdy.

Can't figure out how to post picture on this site... sad I know, old man and not very tech savvy.�� I'll talk to the guys at the bike shop about maybe some careful grinding on the stand. They wouldn't sell it to me because it wouldn't fit. They are trying to find one made for the 520. If that doesn't work, I might try the click stand... or maybe stronger bolts for the stand I have... I just like the dual stand if I can get it to work. Thanks for your help.

Sure like my click stand. It was kinda awkward at first, but I got used to it after a while. Works well even with my 64cm frame.
