I've come across the basic and some creative methods for kickstand support. I accidentally discover that a piece of Styrofoam works pretty good too. What do some of you use for kickstand support ?
I use the electrical box covers too, i tie a string to it and wrap it around the handgrip, that way I don't forget it and can just pick it up with the string, No bending over.I have a kickstand puck I picked up at a bike show for free, a blank electrical box cover works great, costs about $.69 and is easy to carry and stow, plus if you forget to pick it up it's easy to replace at any home store or even walmart.
I use a crushed beer can. Provides twice the piece of mind as soda, half the calories and the price is not much different.Crushed soda can, not only do you get soda, you get peace of mind. All for 75¢
The stand can sink down into the pavement then get solidly stuck there if the temperature cools down enough to solidify the pavement again.Center stands are much worse: tried that trick once, and the bike sank straight down -- had some difficulty getting it off the sunken center stand, but it didn't fall over, at least. :biggrin: Cheers!
