Poor machining made this useless for me

    Comments about Ascent Kickstand:

    This kickstand was ultimately not usable for me.
    Note: I have NO PROBLEM with trimming the thing for length. I fully expect to need to do that. Some other reviewers seem shocked that it needed trimming and described it as "too long". It's long intentionally so you can trim it to fit your specific bike. Expect that.
    Another reviewer had difficulty getting the plastic tip onto the end of the kickstand. Mine won't go on either.
    Yet another reviewer said the mounting bolt wasn't long enough to use with the top clamp for his bike's frame. I have that problem too, with a Giant Escape 3. Conceivably I can install it without using the top clamp, as the Escape 3 has a slot that the kickstand fits into on the underside just behind the crank. I'd need a shorter bolt if I do that.
    But the real problem is the threaded hole machined into the mounting plate. On the unit I got, the hole exits the underside of the mounting bracket right up against a slanted portion of the body of the kickstand, so there's no way to get a nut and lockwasher to tighten down. They'd just bump into the angled body of the kickstand, and that's simply not how nuts and lockwashers are intended to work. Perhaps it was just bad machining on the unit I got. Mine was basically defective. Would not recommend.

      Bolt and top plate would not work on the frame style. Bought a short bolt and trimmed the kick stand, so it fit the small women's frame. Works well.

          Depending on bike size, you will need to cut it to size.

            It's nearly impossible to get the plastic protective cap they give you onto the kickstand if you need to cut it. I needed to trim about 1 inch off the kickstand but absolutely could not get the plastic cap on without having to use a bench grinder to narrow the end.

              Looks nicely made. It comes with a plastic tip to keep your floors from getting scratched, as well as providing added stability if you put the stand's leg down on something other than a hard surface (dirt, lawn, etc.). Extra long size that probably will work with any size bike. It is easy to cut off notched sections of length for proper fitting. Reasonably priced, too.

                  Nice kickstand. Just a little too long, and haven't been able to find the time to chop about an inch off. Otherwise it would have been great.

                  This attached to the frame, right behind the bottom bracket. On my bike I have three cables running there (Diamondback Insight 2) and I couldn't use it. Look at your bike before you buy this.

                    Mounting instructions very simple. Cutting stand to length instructions a little confusing. Read thru instructions until you get it straight. The plastic "foot" would not fit, but stand holds bike up firmly.

                        I needed a kick stand and this is the only one that was available. It is pretty heavy and needs to get "cut" to the length you need. It does have marked lines. I decided not even to use it. Didn't send it back.

                          Comments about Ascent Kickstand:

                          It is very aggravating to have a too short kickstand and the bike leans too much and easy to fall over. I take excellent care of my bike, to watch it fall over because of a poor length and designed kickstand makes me angry. This stand for my extra large frame and high clearance bottom bracket was the right length. For smaller reach bikes, the stand is designed with notches to cut to fit. Nice to have a stand that the bike won't fall over!!!
