Clickstand
« on: May 11, 2016, 08:03:06 PM »
I recently  had a clickstand for  sale . This was because I bought a new Nomad frame and the  clickstand  was too small. As it did not selling contacted  Tom  at clickstand to as if an additional section  could  be fitted to make it fit.
Tom was away on holiday but asked me to send the new measurements and he would deal with it when he returned.
I have just returned from a cycling tour of the Drau  river in Austria  to find Tom had sent all the parts to make my clickstand fit my new frame, FOC.
What fantastic  service from a one man outfit. I would recommend his products to anyone.

Tom Nostrant is one of the nicest people in all of cycling.

Period.

Best,

Great product.

I bought it for my Surly LHT but it works for both my Thorn Mercury and the Twin Raven Tandem.

The only thing to watch out for is to stop the front wheel rotating and stop the handle bars from turning.

The only "but" I've had with my Clickstand, Mike, is that the little elastic tabs used to lock the brakes don't do so very well. The best device I've found for doing that in the Bike Brake band: http://www.bikebrake.com/.  Another device, with a lot of other uses besides, is the 4" Quick-release rubber tie: http://www.leevalley.com/en/garden/page.aspx?p=65393&cat=2,43319,33283

I just use a bit of nylon webbing with a fastex connector to tie the front wheel to the downtube. Makes the whole setup very stable. I keep that strap in one of the mesh pockets on the side of my handlebar bag.

Yeah, you probably have the newer metal ones. Jim's is one of the older wooden ones. Very stable, but a quite heavy. Jim is in the US, so shipping wouldn't be as much as to the UK.

Perhaps Jim could post a video of him folding it up and stashing it on his bike. ;)

<nods> Dave's right...Jim got the "high winds/heavy loads" edition.

All the best,

Dan.

I'm thinking to make a clickstand by myself and i have an idea as base to make one.

http://www.decathlon.fr/baton-arpenaz-100-bleu-id_8355380.html

I imagine that it's enought rigid, light and can be compact once folded

Add a 30mm frame clip and a rubber cap ..

Some suggestions !?  :)

Why not buy one from clickstand  your Nomad  deserves it. The cost might seem high but they are worth it.

You can use a walking pole directly as a bike stand.
See this page at use no.4. https://couplahosers.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/4-uses-for-trekking-poles-when-bicycle-touring/
You can also use the pole at a shorter setting with the hand loop around your top tube or seat tube junction or rear rack. Just hook the loop over the pole end.
I tried this out the other week.

I have also made a clickstand type pole using old tent poles, a couple of walking pole feet, and some Sugru.

I haven't really used it as a clickstand, I usually just lean my bike against something handy, but the pole I made is also a useful tarp pole.
