Re: [rootsradicals] Question: Experience with Installation Trouble - Kickback on Big Dummy?
- Just a follow-up to my email here. I installed my Kickback on my Big Dummy over the weekend & it went on easily. I think it points down a little more than it should so I may end up cutting some of the stopper off. I haven't ridden it yet with the Kickback installed so we'll see how i goes. I did take the suggestion that was posted last week & put some chair leg end caps on it. The 7/8" worked great.Some pics are here:http://roberttilley.smugmug.com/Bicycles/Surly-Big-Dummy/16185229_DFKXRK#!i=1785705391&k=Hr69SV6&lb=1&s=Ahttp://roberttilley.smugmug.com/Bicycles/Surly-Big-Dummy/16185229_DFKXRK#!i=1785703907&k=fzDNTzD&lb=1&s=ARobert TilleySan Diego, CAOn Tue, Apr 3, 2012 at 12:27 PM, <rltilley@...> wrote:
I just bought one as well and will install it on the new version of the Dummy (18"). Unfortunately I won't be able to get to it until Sunday. I'll post some pics after I get it installed.

Subject: [rootsradicals] Question: Experience with Installation Trouble - Kickback on Big Dummy?
Â We have a customer who's having an issue installing a KickBack on a current-model Big Dummy.Â This is the first time we've had someone mention this (and people have been installing the KickBack on this type of Big Dummy for a couple of years now), so we're wondering if any of you have any experience with this. If so, what was the nature of the problem and what did you do to remedy it?
Â From the photos the customer sent, it looks like the two 'stubs' that rest against the Big Dummy frame when the KickBack is retracted are contacting the kickstand bracket, so we're wondering if that's somehow misaligned. Info on how your KickBack interfaces with this bracket would also be appreciated, because that might tell us if his is installed differently somehow.
"I just purchased a Kickback centerstand through xtracycle.com <http://xtracycle.com/> . It arrived yesterday, and I promptly installed it. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to fit quite right, it doesn't fold up parallel with the chainstays. I've attached a couple photos showing the maximum retraction. It appears as though the stub on the kickback hits the stock kickstand bracket on the Big Dummy's frame. Any suggestions? It seems like the stub on the centerstand should be about Â½" shorter to allow it to fully fold up."
Â Thanks in advance.
