Kick Stand Installation Question(3 posts)

Kick Stand Installation QuestionChainstay

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.
Carbon and Ti kickstand for that onemhinman

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.
