This is probably a dumb question....
I added a cool hoop style kickstand from Spookytooth. (see pic)
I did have to do a minor grinding mod to the right side of the stand to make it fit on the rear tangs just right. Works nice and has a locking position. After years and years with this bike, it took a motor to get a kickstand!
My question: I have quick release rear hub. It's extremely nice and heavy duty. But with added width of the kickstand the retaining axle screw doesn't make enough thread engagement for comfort....it works, maybe 3-4 threads or so, but I want more. Is it ok to remove what I think is an axle spacer? See pic #2.
