frame-mounted side-stand stronger than a Hebie 611

Postby latequartet » 7 May 2016, 9:19am

We have a new bike, with frame mounting holes on the chain stay. The Hebie 611 is not strong enough and has failed (at less than the 25kg max load), any suggestions of an alternative replacement side-stand (before we consider a bigger shift in kickstand choices), that will mount in the same place?

How about a twin leg stand? Something like this one:-

Others are available

Thanks Elizabeth, we do know about the wide range of alternatives, but are specifically looking for a frame-mounted side-stand stronger than a Hebie 611.

I had a twin leg stand on one bike and found it to be very good for stability and ease of use. Bolts on in exactly the same way as a prop stand. Another alternative to consider are the prop stands that fix on at the rear axle - has the advantage of providing support directly underneath your loaded panniers - also it is nicely out the way, I have found with other prop stands that over time they would move out a bit so that the crank would clip it as you pedalled. I have a Rose bike that came with one fitted so can vouch for it's stability.

Thanks, and sorry, Elizabethsdad (not Elizabeth) ... it is actually a kickstand (Hebie) mounted on the chain stay right by the rear axle that we're wanting to replace with something strong.

There is a Pletscher Comp zoom which uses the two-hole frame mount and seems to work fine for a couple of PCSOs with chunky bikes, but I'm not sure even with rack bags full they are quite 25Kg. It looks more substantial than the Hebie 611, though.
