    Just got a new kick stand from Spooky Tooth. The 40cc Tanaka was a bit to heavy and off center for my old side stand.
    the "NUVO" center stand is beefier than I expected and very sturdy. In the raised position its slightly lower to the ground than I anticipated but shouldn't cause any problems.
    Good clearance around the rear wheel and for the pedals.

    This is another reason I love my bike from Five Flags, other than the motor mount with handle that's easy to remove & easily helps me carry the bike up a flight of stairs.

    They include this type of kickstand with the bike (tho it doesn't have the spring), and when I take off the front wheel, the bike remains standing on the kickstand and back wheel. And what's even cooler is that when I remove the *back* wheel, the bike remains balanced on the kickstand and *front* wheel. The weight is perfectly distributed on this folding bike that I can take either wheel off and it just stays. That's pretty neat to me.
