Product Description

Raleigh Propstand - Stay Fit

This propstand is bolted to the frame's left-hand stays. This arrangement has two benefits.

  • It can offer more stable support if the back of the bike is heavily laden - say with panniers or a childseat
  • Some bikes won't accommodate a 'standard' propstand, fitted just behind the bottom bracket.

Raleigh Propstand features

  • A sideways flick of your foot pivots the propstand in line with the left hand chainstay so it's out of the way when you cycle.
  • Mostly aluminium construction with non-scratch, grippy plastic 'shoe'.
  • Optimised to fit 26-inch wheel bikes.
  • You'll need a 5mm Allen key to fit this propstand.
  • 240g - based upon weighing one of these prop stands at Bike Co-op HQ in September 2014. This is one sturdy kickstand.

A kickstand is a sound component on any utility bike because it allows you the convenience of being able to briefly park your bicycle without depending on a wall or a railing to lean it on.

Because it clamps to the frame's stays, a propstand is best reserved for bikes built with hard steel tubing rather than 'softer' aluminium or carbon frame tubes.
