|Kick Stand Installation Question||Chainstay|
Oct 19, 2003 6:01 PM
|There is not enough clearance between the tire and the chain stay bridge to install a kick stand on my Merlin Extralight. Do you think it would be OK to cut out the bridge with a hacksaw? I figure once that kickstand bolt is good and tight then I will have all the reinforcment I need.
I sure would like a kickstand to go with my spoke clackers.

|A bike like that should have no less than kickstand with a carbon shaft and Ti mechanism. Make sure you use a dull blade when you cut out the bridge.|

|... but just in case... duct tape... cuz if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy...
Be the bike.
