Kickstands???D Bris

<< pause while laughter subsides >>

While riding over the weekend I saw a bike with what I thought was a kickstand that mounted to the chainstay, at the rear, and apparently folded forward along the underside of the chainstay when not in use.

Was I imagining this or is this for real? If so, any idea who makes it and where I could get one?

... might be a Tranz X model... available through your LBS from QBP... I've seen said mounted on Police/Ranger rigs... and even bought one for a recumbent (it needs to be modified). I believe that it's been marketed under several different labels (Cannondale Coda had one just like it a few years ago).

Some models can fold either way... others fold back (when extended, their balance point is on a line near the rear axle.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

It would be just the ticket for my rig......perhaps a holster for the 12 gauge also?
