Recumbent sidestand

Postby RecumbentRide » 7 Oct 2018, 4:38pm

Hi all,
I've got a Challenge Furai and I'd like to fit a sidestand and since I'm unlikely to be able to get one from Challenge as they only answer their emails when they feel like it I'm asking you folk for recommendations. The rear wheel is 24in and I will attach a photo with some measurements later. I'm not bothered about having to drill into the rear dropouts to fit something appropriate if need be. Thanks

This is what Nazca uses on their machines:

I’ve got one on my Fuego, I have found it robust and stable. Obviously you will need to trim it a bit to adjust it to the Furai’s rear wheel size, assuming the mounting holes are compatible.

Yes on the Nazcas there is a braze on for fitting kickstands which challenge don't use. I've attached an image to show what I mean.

At least you have choices there. I've never seen a dropout with so many threaded options.My Street Machne came with a rear kick stand, optional extra though I might say. My Big Dummy came with a cheap side stand that I didn't rate at all, it has however preformed very well. It did have a mounting plate though. I'll try to get to grips with the photo downsizing thing and show the SMGTe one in case it helps.

I've emailed several recumbent dealers in Holland so I'm hoping I can get something soon.
