Re: Enthusiastic in Louisville
Don't worry about the higher center of gravity. You really don't notice it at all when you are riding. I will say though, a conventional bicycle kickstand won't cut it....I'd recommend a bi-pod kickstand like you see on scooters. I recently ordered two from Niagra cycles (one for me and one for my friend in Louisville) and it works well. Since you are closeby, I'd be happy to let you check them out firsthand if you like. Yes, the Staton kits are a bit on the heavy side, but that's one reason they are so darn good. They are definately built to last! Just let me know if I can be of any help. In my opinion, the Trek looks like a fine bike for this...I'd go with it and give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
