the description shoot ah nobody ever saw
and buy it out of that before we get
started remember to subscribe to the
channel ring the bell and subscribe to
all of our notifications that way they
will get a heads up when we upload a new
video it’s so the kickstand that I
bought off in design is this one right
here it’s a it’s metal it’s some kind of
metal right here and it’s adjustable so
there’s a allen screw on the back they
can use to adjust the height of the
kickstand and it came with this little
bracket right here now the bracket is
for to attach the kickstand if you do
not have a provision for kickstand so
would go over the top like that so what
I’m gonna do is I’m gonna show you how
to put the kickstand on your bike if it
didn’t come with one and so for this
particular one I just see now on the
wrench I have one right here and I’ll
put it on and show you what it looks
like so to attach the kickstand you’re
gonna take the bolt that came with it
drop it through the frame and like I
said if you don’t have a little bracket
right here you can put this on the top
like that and the bolt will go through
and you want to start it off by hand
it should be easily down this pretty
long since you have the bolt down hey
that’s pretty snug doesn’t move the
stand down so give the kickstand and try
your foot and clean them pretty good so
if it’s leaning too much the other way
this is an adjustable allen screw on the
back and it is right right there so you
can loosen that and you can slide the AG
end of the kickstand up or down so that
aleene’s the correct way you don’t want
it too far forward because they’ll make
it tip over easy I’ll blow over or
whatever so hope you guys enjoyed

MTB Kickstand Review
Choosing a Mountain Bike Kickstand is one of the most important things that you will do while out riding your mountain bike. There are some points that you need to take into consideration when choosing the right kind of kickstand. This will save you from many problems that could occur during your rides.
Once chosen, the next step would be to check and buy the proper sized kickstand for the bike you already own. The size that you require depends upon how many spindly wheels you possess in your mountain bike (i.e. how many are rear and front)? To determine the exact size of the mountain bike kickstand you require, it is best to take the actual measurement of the wheel and its mounts. You can also measure the mounting hole of the kickstand itself and that of your mountain bike seat.
There is a wide range of mountain bike kickstands available. You have the ones that you can mount in the ground or you have the ones that are installed on the bikes. The thing that makes them unique is that you can adjust the height of these stands. When you choose a kickstand that is to be mounted in the ground, make sure that the hole where it screws is covered with gravel or a pebble. These small items may cause injury if they are knocked over and hit the leg of the rider.
The other thing you should consider before purchasing the kickstand is whether it will be used in touring or not. If you are a touring cyclist and you use your mountain bike for trips that takes you through rough terrains and sandy beaches then it is obvious that you will need a strong and sturdy support system to support you and your bicycle. However, this does not mean that you should go in for the lightest and most flimsy support system possible. There are many touring bikes that weigh well below ten pounds and are equipped with aluminum alloy fits 24 wheels and rear mount brake system. These bikes are sturdy and strong and would be able to support you and your bicycle for long journeys on rough terrain.
Before making the purchase, you should also check out whether the bike you plan to buy has a much easier time being loaded up and un-loaded. Some mountain bikes have an easier time being loaded up than others. The reason behind this is because some of these bikes are equipped with a much simpler kickstand. There are some that are made up of a simple and straightforward strap with the brake and gears already fitted on them. On the other hand, there are some mountain bikes that are made up of much heavier materials such as titanium and steel and would require an extra strap to be attached to it. This extra strap is designed to keep the bike upright when not in use and prevent slippage during transport.
One way to ensure that the kickstand will be comfortable enough when used on rough terrain is by ensuring that the bracket that will hold the kickstand is firmly attached to the back of the bike frame. Ensure that the lockable front lock is engaged and is properly secured on the bike frame. Also ensure that the lockable rear lock works properly. While purchasing a new kickstand, you should consider buying one that is adjustable so that you can set the height at which it is lowest and the height at which it is highest. This is an important factor to take into account especially if you live in a place that varies in temperature from season to season.
