Not as exciting as my "headline" might imply but I have a wooden stool
in my garage that is 20 inches high. If I rotate the drive-side pedal
of my xtra to the top and put it on the stool, a coffee can (no. 10
size) fits under the xtracycle-provided kickstand. The back wheel is
then off the ground, ready for all of my repair and maintenance needs.
It's not super stable (I wouldn't sit on it) but it's stable enough
to wrestle with the rear wheel.
I'm not sure if the kickstand is the xtracycle supplied length, we
would have to wait for dr2chase to chime in on that, as I bought my
rig from him secondhand. Of course, bottom bracket height and crank
length will change things too.
Thing is, I have a no-cost "center stand" for working on the rear
wheel of my xtra and I think that's cool.
