Tandems traditionally use the underside of the top tube, just behind the Captain's seat tube. But there's nothing magic about that location. 

  • Commuters.
  • Club Riders.
  • Everyday Cyclists.
  • Tour riders with a support van.
  • Handlebar bags, rack bags, seat bags, and baskets.
  • Carbon Fiber and Lycra


The Max Click-Stand

I can do that. Select "multicolor" in the color choice, then in the "Special Instructions" box let me know the colors and order of the tubes, and which is at the top. If blue is one of your colors, remember to let me know which one.

The Folding Portable Kickstand for All Bikes


Click-Stand

The Max Click-Stand is for:


  • Tour bikes with panniers.
  • Tandems.
  • Tourists with their camping gear.
  • Long wheel-base recumbents.
  • Bikes with trailers.
  • Utility bikes.
  • eBikes
  • Anyone who loads up their bike.

The Mini Click-Stand is for:


The Mini Click-Stand

First,  decide if a Mini, or a Max is right for you. Its all about what you carry on your bike.

Top Tube

​Recumbents

Catching one of the seat stays is the perfect option for bikepackers with frame bags, carbon bikes with wide top tubes, step-through bikes, or bikes with extremely sloping top tubes. 

There are six models of Click-Stands, let's find the right one for you.

Finally, go forth and measure your bike. For help see the page:

These all fit the same bike.

More segments just fold smaller.

Words of Wisdom:


  • If you are right in the middle and can't decide, get the Max. It will support all bicycles.
  • If you can't decide on the number of sections, here is my advise. Get a Mini-6, or a Max-5.
  • If you can't find or decide on a place to carry a Click-Stand, I offer two frame mounted brackets.
  • A Mini-4 or Mini-5 may make sense for a smaller frame, check the folded length chart.
  • A Max-6 may make sense for a taller frame or atypical Contact Points.
  • If you discover you have made the wrong choice just let me know. For every problem, at least with Click-Stand, there is a solution.

If it is available, the best location for a Click-Stand on a recumbent is back at the seat support. 

"Measure Your Bike"

 Third, decide if your Click-Stand should be made with 4,5,or 6 segments. Its all about where you will carry it, and how small it folds. 

This is the traditional location. It works for many different types of bicycles. The cradle doesn't have to be directly next to the seat tube.

 Second, locate the "Contact Point" on your bike. That point is where the Click-Stand will touch your bike.

When creativity takes hold, seat rails, odd frame members, rear suspension linkage, light brackets, the front edge of a rack, a Stoker's handlebar stem have all become Contact Points.


The standard black Mini and Max Click-Stands are also available in several colors. Colors add $4 to your bill. Either you can't resist, or you remember that black is beautiful.

Fourth, colors (or colours):

The Mini comes as a Mini-4, Mini-5, or Mini-6. The Max comes as a Max-4, Max-5, or Max-6. the only difference is how small they are when folded, well that and money. It is all about where you will carry it. A Mini-6 will fit in your jersey pocket. A Max-5 will fit in a handlebar bag. To help you decide I made two charts. Using the measured "Contact Height" of your bike you can see approximately how short your Mini or Max will fold. Of course you will have to measure your bike first.
