Double-leg cycle kick stand

Double-leg cycle kick stand

I am looking for a strong, stable but lightweight double-leg cycle stand. Can you recommend one?

Jim Moran

Some of the double-leg  kick stands on the market are undoubtedly heavy and look to have been designed for the postal bike market. One that does not is made by the venerable Swiss firm of Pletscher, from die-cast aluminium alloy. Weighing under 600g, it costs around £26. You should be able to order it from any shop that has an account with Chicken Cycles, the UK distributor. Stockists include Evans Cycles.
