Should I use a KickBack stand if I install a PeaPod on my Xtracycle?


I'm planning on purchasing a PeaPod for my Xtracycle. I'm wondering whether the stock kickstand will have difficulty keeping the bike upright while I'm loading my kid in and out of the seat, and if I should perhaps install a KickBack stand for stability. If anyone has experience loading kids in and out of the PeaPod, let me know what you think about the kickstand issue.

Thanks for your help,

    In short, the answer to this question is yes. While the standard kickstand will work, it is not ideal.

    The KickBack, when used on a level or mostly level surface, will keep your bike upright, and make it far more difficult to topple. You will feel more comfortable moving about the bike as you load/unload when the bike is upright and well supported.

    You can even 'hack' your own extra wide legs for the Kickback if you want extra support - the video instruction for this is here:
