Re: Pletscher Double Leg Kickstand
- Thanks Rich. Yes, I planned on having to trim the legs like I have had to do with the single leg Greenfields that I usually use. A Dremel tool with a cut off wheel makes quick work of it.

It does require that the legs be trimmed to length as part of the installation unless you want the front wheel way off the ground when using it. I have it on the Steelwool Tweed frame which had minimal clearance from the BB to the chainstay bridge so I had to do some minor filing on the stand to get it to fit OK. Should fit w/o modification on most frames that accept a normal behind bottom bracket mounted side stand.

Does anyone have any experience with them? I seem to recall that someone on here commented on one before, but I can't find the thread when I search.
