Kickstands

July 29, 2010

Eliza needs a kickstand badly!! I having to find a wall to prop her up against and when Pashley arrives it will make it harder to arrange the bikes in the bedroom.

I was going to try and do something like Deborah from Loop-Frame Love did here but the mounting plate wont work with Eliza because of her rod brakes.

Soooo if anyone has any ideas I’d really appreciate it …I’d love a double kickstand but at this point I’ll entertain any ideas

Much Love& Happy Riding!

    If you contact Jon Gehman at Red Barn Bicycle Accessories (http://redbarnbike.blogspot.com), I am sure he can make one for you.

    Your only other hope is finding an original one, which would be tough.

      Veloruia~

      Is there anyways I could get some close up shots of the kickstand on your DL-1?? This may make it easier for me to try and figure out something.

      TIA:)

    I will see if I can get you a picture of the one on mine. It is either an Esge or Greenfield, standard single leg aluminum kickstand.

    Here is a picture to the kickstand mounted on my DL-1. It is a Greenfield (made in the USA) It is a bit on the short side, but I plan to add a rubber foot to the end of it which will make it bit taller. I have seen racks with the full rear wheel stand (think Dutch style) on a DL-1 somewhere, but cannot remember where I saw it.

    I will check and see if there is clearance for the double legged Esge stand. I have one on another bike, but have no clue if it will fit or not. I doubt it, but I have been wrong before…once 😉

      Have you seen this double kickstand from Velo Orange? I’d LOVE to see if that would work too..Knowing my luck it will work on my Pashley when I get it but not the DL-1

      I have someone from Boston that is able to make me something that will work with the Raleigh ..He is the person that made the rear rack for Velouria’s DL-1 from Lovely Bicycle.

    My DL-1 has a standard kick stand on it, and someone shaved down the plate to accommodate the rods. A DIY solution to be sure, but a cheap one. those kick stands are everywhere. I can take a picture if you are interested in this solution.
