Slipstream Kick Stand Fix
Update 4/9/08 see SlipStream Kick Stand Fix Installed
There may be more but this is what I’ve found on the Longbikes web site:
Product upgrade announcement: Slipstream owners, if you have had problems with your ESGE 2 leg kickstand not staying tight to the frame, I finally made some reinforcing adapters which beef up the kickstand bridge and eliminate the problem of the kickstand rotating. We will have a small quantity on the shelf in a few days when they come back from anodizing. If you need or want to upgrade to these, drop me a note and we can get them to you. I will determine the price and get photos on the site sometime later this week
The new parts (shown above) have a lip to prevent the kick stand from turning and lips to keep the bracket itself from turning. Looks like it should work. The parts themselves are like all of Greg’s parts very nicely machined and finished, very high quality parts.
The parts have arrived but the roads in New Hampshire are not yet ready for much Slipstream riding. We still have a lot of snow and ice along the sides of the road where there are sides. But I will be installing and reporting on results soon, I hope.
