Regardless of how you feel towards kickstands on a road bike, judging by the number of questions I used to get in the bike shop about them, there are people out there that want one. Case in point? The carbon fiber, collapsible Upstand. First spotted about a year ago, the Upstand has been upgraded and offers the bike propping ability for bicycles without a kickstand mount. Got a 20″ wheeled folding or recumbent bike? There’s an Upstand for that. There are also sizes for 26″/700c and 29″ wheels as well.
Created by the same folks behind 2×2 Cycles, Upstand is building the kickstands in the US and is looking for some support.
