When I was out in Washington last month, my main man Randy Pulk had one of these and as soon as I saw the Click Stand in action, I knew that I’d be ordering one. Randy had bought his Click Stand for bikepacking in high open ‘sagebrush’ trips that don’t have trees to lean your bike up against. It also would come in handy in the desert, where everything has spines. But the reason that I knew that I had to buy one was primarily for photography. I lean my bike with the best of them….and my bike falls over with the best of them.
Now with the Click Stand, I can balance the bike in places that I’d never even attempt with just a stick. They have a good set of instructions on the website to determine what size and how many segments that your Click Stand will have. The stand comes in two different thicknesses. I ordered the heavy-duty CS and it came in the mail a couple of days later.
The key to sticking the landing with the Click Stand are the little hair scrunchy things that lock up your brakes. With the brakes locked down, Ten Beers maintained a steady stiff upper lip for the duration…with splendid results. The little hair scrunchies stay on your bars when not in use.
Click Stands are made to order in Aberdeen Washington and you can check them out at Click-Stand.com
