    I plan on doing dual kickstands on both the bikes I have (motorized and not).

    The unmotorized bike has side baskets in the rear and trying to balance it while loading them is a bother.

    The motorized bike will have one too. This is especially important considering the prevalence of rear flat tires people tend to see. I want a full wraparound rear fender so I dunno exactly how I'll do it, but at least the bike won't be laying on its side while I'm messing with the rear wheel.

    There's the ESGE kickstand (shown), there's one by Hebie that's only available in Canada (not the US!), and then there's some rear-flip kickstands for Pashleys and various Euro utility bikes--but these only mount on single-speed width wheels (or geared hubs).

    Amazon lists at least one, but it says that it's only for single-speed (or geared hub) bikes. ALL of these types I've seen say that they will only fit on single-speed bikes, though I haven't seen one up close to understand why.....

    ....Also we note: the lowrider "wishbone" double kickstand you also see on Amazon looks like the one branded Hebie in Canada....
