I don't know how much heigth you need but this is the kickstand I have. It's 12 3/4" from the floor to the bottom of my rear chain stay when the stand is down. My bike will rock from the front to rear wheel depending on which one I want off the floor.My two-legged bike stand doesn't touch the ground after I installed a suspension fork. In my case, it's more critical because of my front and rear engines.
What do you guys use as bike stand?
I had the two legged kickstand with rubber feet from Spooky, it would just barely keep the bike up, it wasn't high enough. Then I tried to bend the "steel" and found out why it was called an alloy stand, it cracked.
i have a 20" bike and was going to lay it flat and custom mount it so when it would normally be down it would be up and vice versa.......do you think it would work?I had the two legged kickstand with rubber feet from Spooky, it would just barely keep the bike up, it wasn't high enough.

I broke down and spent the money for the above stand, there are many suppliers all around $40 - $45. It works well and lifts the front wheel up about 2 to 3 inches, just right. It is heavy duty and easy to install. This is on a cruiser style bike. It is easy to use and folds up nicely. It bolts right on to the frame, no special kickstand plate needed. You do have to line it up right so that it unfolds perpendicular to the frame, that might take a few adjustments.
Highly recommended, in fact I don't know of any other option that comes close.
Sky,In the up position it looks like a regular one legged kickstand. It sits up pretty tight, you have to push it down with your foot.
I don't quite understand what you are trying to do, but in the up position, the two legs are folded right next to eachother.
Sky,ouch, hope nothing broke!
