    permanent kick stand.

    The frame I have has a permanent kick stand built into it. Can i just take a hacksaw to it? the bracket part is all rusted and nasty, and I wouldn't mind getting rid of it...

    keep the kickstand. it acts like flints and makes cool sparks at night.

    he is indeed serious, it makes the nearly impossible job of removing the old schwinn style integrated/permanent kickstand a breeze. also handy for installing a new one, which believe me is a horrible experience without the proper tool.
