    Schwinn Landmark. I'm thinking about putting a SBP pipe on it, and realized I'd need a rear kickstand. But there's not a whole lot of room around the axle nut, because I've got fenders and a rack bolted up right there. I'm afraid a rear kickstand would interfere.

    Has anyone used one of these Greenfield rear stands that attaches to the frame?

    I had one very similar on my mountain bike build, they're great and far more stable than you'd think. :)

    It wasn't a problem even tho the rear axle on mine was very cluttered too, although you may find it needful to reshape the mount just a bit to fit your bike (tubing diameter/angle)... maybe not, but it's easy 'nuff anyway.

    I have that kick stand on my mountain bike and its very nice. Far more stable than any center kick stand I've had and what's nice is you can easily tilt the bike on it to get the rear tire off the ground for various reasons while tinkering. You wont be sorry on this one.

    So far we've only had one customer - just now - has interference with a rear kickstand (our adjustable one), and that was interfering with his coaster brake mounting point. Have not heard back yet.
