Solid, stable stand and not expensive

This is a great stand. I can see that a previous review said that it interfered with a gear cable, but on a specialised myka it's perfect even with the myka's tight geometry. Unlike a single sided stand thee pedals do not crash into it if you roll the bike backwards. It's so good that I'm buying one for my recumbent.

good while it lasted

The advantage of this stand is that it is extremely stable - the bike would not fall over even with a substantial asymmetric load (one heavy pannier, and nothing on the other side). However, there were also two problems. One fault was that it obstructed the gear cable, requiring sawing a groove into the metal for the gear cable. The other problem was that (after I think about 3 years) over a period of weeks it started needing more and more force to shift it between the two positions, until it eventually just seized up completely, and could not readily be freed up either with lubricant or any obvious fix to the mechanism. At that point it needed to be replaced.

Prop Stands Guide

What are prop stands?

Prop stands, or kickstands as they are also referred to, are ideal for preventing damage to your bike, as they hold it upright without you needing to lean it against something or lie it down. They are inexpensive, easy to use and can be taken off if needs be.

Who needs a prop stand?

If you make frequent stops on your rides, then a kickstand is an ideal accessory. It’s especially useful when touring, as it will help support your bike without your luggage causing it to topple over. Similarly, a prop stand is perfect for using when getting a child in or out of a child seat or trailer.

What are the choices?

There are all sorts of prop stands out there. Adjustable stands are perfect for tailoring the height to your bike while double leg stands give more stability. There are junior stands available for children’s bikes, mountain bike specific stands and universal fitting stands.

What should I buy with it?

If you haven’t already got assembly tools, our tool section will cater for your needs.

Anything else?

Make sure you kick the stand back up before you set off again! Also, if you leave your bike unattended, be sure to lock it securely and take luggage with you if possible.
