Default re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

okay here is one born from necessity. When i dropped the size of the rear wheel the kickstand was too long. The one i put on to fit fell off during ride to the park so i was left trying to make one work. I found one that was too long so I chopped it off with a hacksaw. then it was just a hair short. I didn't want to saw another one so I attached a bolt to the bottom of it with a couple of pipe clamps like those used on radiator hose. It works fine so far. As often as I change rear wheels I figured it was as good an idea as any. ugly but workable
