I never thought I would put a kickstand on my bike, but this kickstand has been the biggest life saver. I no longer have to find a rock or bush to lean the bike up against when I have to get off. The kickstand itself is put together really well. It has a really strong spring on it to hold it in place when your riding, but be careful putting this spring on as it is extremely tight. I used a set a brake spring pliers to get it on. The only thing I am worried about is the plastic foot on the bottom. I have only had it a month, but it is well worth the money if you need to have a kickstand.
