Recumbent Kickstand Fit List
Our recumbent customers often ask which kickstand works best with which bike. There are some kickstands that work well with many bikes, and some bikes that can use different models of kickstands. As with any recumbent accessory that wasn't made specifically for recumbents, there are varying degrees of fit and function for each application. Using a five star system, the Hostel Shoppe has rated the fit and function of each kickstand we carry. Five stars provides the best fit and function, but please note that not all bikes have a 5 star fit - that's because we haven't seen a kickstand that can provide it. If you have had experience with a certain kickstand on a certain bike (be it good or bad) please drop us a line and tell us about it. Due to manufacturer changes in bicycle frames and kickstands over the years, we are only able to test the fit on current models only. Please call if you aren't sure!
