Hi, I have an hpv grasshopper (non-folder) - can anyone recommend a stand for this bike, ideally a twin leg stand which can lift either the front or back wheel off the ground . Many thanks, Will

I can't give any specific recommendation but Practical Cycles have a good range.

The standard single sided one has worked well for me over the last 9 years - no idea if a twin leg would work (wrt the chain run)

Just seen http://www.freshtripe.co.uk/freshtripe/Accessories_files/VO%20Copenhagen%20Kick-1.jpg
which would get over the potential chain foul problem.

I have an Easy Racer Gold Rush which came with a one leg stand (as an extra) but it kept falling over unless the ground was flat and even - I replaced it with the Hebie 690c NLE Bipod stand (a twin-leg stand) (bought in a cycle shop in Holland after the bike fell over yet again as I was parking it outside) and have been very pleased with this - much more stable - cannot park facing downhill on a steep hill if I have panniers on as the weight will roll the bike off the stand, and on windy days have to park facing the wind - the bike has a Zzipper faring which can catch the wind and again roll the bike off the stand.

(It does mean that if I have to park on a steep hill when the wind is blowind uphill I can be in difficulties - but that does not happen often)
