Default Re: First Build Thread - BTR Inspired Cruiser

My rear dropout kickstand didn't work the best either. I ended up bending the small tabs in and flipping it over. It's loose until you get everything locked down. I usually get my wheel adjusted and tightened slightly until it's secure enough not to move. Then I put the bike up on the stand and lock it down tight. You could also drill and tap a small hole in the drop out for an additional bolt to hold it in place. I'll probably do that in the near future.

Currently no bike but thinking about starting a new build soon.
