    Your LBS has them. They can be trimmed to the correct height at the shop.

    I only use my bike to commute to school. I ride it on sidewalks and roads.

    thats like asking where to buy a cup holder to be mounted on to a formula 1 race car, or a cargo carrying rack on a Porsche.

    But if you have to...local bike shop should have them. Try to see you can get the ones that the police use that is mounted to the non-drivetrain side chainstay (Cooler looking) vs. the typical kickstand that you see mounted next to the bottom bracket (the most popular type).

    There's reason a $1200 mountain bike doesn't come with a kickstand... it's not a commute bike. My suggestion is don't try make it something it isn't. Sell the bike a get a bike intended for commuting, not only will it ride better on streets and sidewalks, but it likely will come with a factory installed kickstand.

    Didn't know sticking a kickstand on mtb is against the law. Jeez, Op wants a kickstand so let him have a kickstand. Some of you guys are silly. I got a kickstand on mine just cause I hate laying it down on the ground, and I stop all the time riding in the woods. I see people with their ipods attached to their mtb's so whats the big deal. Besides, who knows how the Op rides on the city streets. Maybe he likes to jump stairs all the time, or bunny hop fire hydrants. How's he going to do that on a commuter bike? Some of you guys are just too hardcore...

    And to answer the Op's question, just get the Greenfeld KS2 kickstand from amazon. Get the longest one and cut it down to size. Thats by far one of the better kickstands available

    I have motorcycles from 1946, and various bikes. I have removed kickstands from bicycles since 1974. Motorcycles are a bit different, but if you use a side stand, carry a thin metal plate to keep your side stand from poking a hole in the asphalt in warm weather. There may be reliable kickstands. I would like to see one.

    Why make such a big deal out out of a damn kick stand. I want a kick stand on my Diamondback too because i always lay them on the trail and look like an idiot while every other bike just sits there and spit on my bike.

    This thread cracks me up...a buddy of mine once wired his old MTB's kickstand to the frame instead of taking it off so kickstands have been a laughing point in our group for a while.

    I'd be careful buying the kickstands that go on the rear chainstay. Alot of them only fit on specific configurations. If you got a big rotor in the back, they will not fit. I've used a Bell, a double kickstand, and a greenfeld, and everyone of them fell apart except for the greenfeld. The design is really sturdy. The only way I can imagine it breaking is getting it caught on something while going in reverse.

    They are usually stocked right next to the skirts.

    I would search Ebay or chainreaction.com but try your LBS first. You might find it difficult to secure your bike if you have a kickstand. Don't forget to buy a good U lock for your bike.

    Good luck.

    Do what you want, it's your bike. Just a word of caution, don't go crazy and over-tighten it to the frame. You don't want to crimp the metal.

    Davy Ray - no bike is heavy enough to need a plate under its sidestand
    to keep it from sinking in the ground.
    OP - just lean your bike against a tree if you are concerned about
    laying it on the ground.

    If you buy a kickstand at an LBS they'll rub you to buy the extended warranty with a free maintenance plan. You'll have to take the bike in every 6 months to get the kickstand alignment checked and it's mechanism lubed by a professional bike mechanic. Worth every penny!

    Yeah, totally ruins the car.



    Nah, do it! If you're using your 29er for city bike use, do it. If you have panniers and carry big loads, do a centerstand, like a two legged kickstand that holds the bike perfectly vertical instead of leaning to one side.

    If you take your 29er on trail rides, I would suggest getting a long velcro strap to hold it up. If you hit a rock or land a small drop on the trail, sometimes the kickstand will drop down.

    You must shop at Performance Bike or something.

    Nothing wrong with the OP wanting a kickstand. I recommend a carbon one to save weight.

    (First part is true.)
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Look for a greenfield sks2b 305mm .

    Have one on the fat bike and it rules.

    No love for Ti? the suppleness of the Ti stand would be pure sweetness.
