BV Adjustable Bicycle Kickstand with Concealed Spring-Loaded Latch, for 24-29 Inch Bike Kickstand
I just went to the hardware store to buy another longer bolt to fit this Bicycle Kickstand to a different bike. It was a 3/8-16 bolt. I used a 2.5″ bolt for the new bike, since the included ones were not long enough.
Prior to buying this kickstand, I was never really satisfied with the generic kickstands sold with bikes. They tended to be either too tall or too short with no real way to adjust them. Changing tires (from a rugged tire to a street slick) would alter the height of the bike, thus making the generic kickstand unstable.
This kickstand is really amazing. First off, it is relatively light weight at 0.66 pounds total. Most other sturdy stands weigh double that, if not more. Second, the adjustability is super easy. Press a tab, move the adjustable section to the desired height, and set. No bolts or complicated mechanisms.
Another selling point to me was the length. This will fit 24″ wheels up to 29″ wheels. The kickstand easily fit my 29er mountain bike and felt very sturdy because I could adjust the height precisely.
To many, putting a kickstand on a high dollar bike is unholy, but to me, its a useful feature. I’ve had bikes fall when they were leaning against something. Never had a bike fall due to this kickstand.
I’ve put this on my road bike now, and its so worth having. Dropping a high dollar carbon bike sucks, not to mention damaging the frame or components. This prevents that thought from even existing.
To the real mountain bikers out there, I’ve taken this on trails and some sizeable drops, and the stand never came down once.
The mechanism is so solid and makes a very confirming click when you extend or retract it. It also works perfectly on the roads with a road bike. No noise or jostling.
To summarize, this kickstand is rock solid, will fit most bikes on the market, can be easily adjusted without any tools, and works amazingly well even on mountain trails.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one for every bike I own simply because of the ease of adjustment and how good of a stand this is. If you are on the fence about buying this, don’t think twice.
And the included bolt(s) can be replaced with sizes that you need with a stop to the local hardware store. 3/8-16 was the bolt that I got, in 2.5″ to be precise.*
Package included both a standard hex bolt and an allen bolt. Very nice to have a choice.Promised Review By Dylan
