I'm very particular about what I put on my bike. It's just an entry-level Trek 7.3 hybrid style, but I keep it clean, maintained, and free of scratches. I desperately need a kickstand, so I thought I would give this a try. It looks well-made, but extending the leg as far as necessary to reach the floor after installation told me I would be passing the product on to someone less picky. The stand seemed to bend under the pressure of holding the bike in place. There's no way it would keep the bike upright once I loaded it with my tail pack and snacks. The geometry just doesn't work for my application. I'll spend a few extra bucks to buy a kickstand my Trek dealer recommends.
- How accurate was the sizing? One size fits all usually disappoints most.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality of manufacture is good. Universal fit engineering was not good on my Trek 7.3.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
The kickstand looks nice and I like how it adjust but the rubber piece at the bottom fell off shortly after putting kickstand on my daughters bike and continues to fall off every time she rides. If the bottom was of better quality it would be an "excellent" kickstand.
