Copenhagen Dual Leg Kickstand
The Copenhagen dual leg kickstand is perfect for city bikes. It has a "scissor-action" that folds both legs to the non-drive side of the bike. The leg length is adjustable and can be locked to the desired length. It fits bikes with or without kickstand plates.

Didn't like it on the bike for which I purchased it (i.e. Velo Orange Polyvalent); but it looks and functions great on my bike that has a basket on front. Helps keep the handlebars from turning right or left when the bike is parked.
Have had this on my bike for about 600 miles now, and I love it! I commute and have weekend trips with my son in tow, and the added balance of a dual leg stand is nice (never leave a bike with a child unattended!) when loading my son on and off the rear child carrier. It also helps balance the bike on most surfaces when I'm towing a bike trailer. Easy to adjust the height, but I found that the shortest setting was already for sufficient for my small frame Cannondale hybrid.
Word of warning about sizing! The top fastener plate was way too large (length wise) to fit on my bike's rear mounting plate (and the bolt was too long to fasten the top plate to the actual stand). While my sample size was limited to the 20-odd bikes in my apartment building, this top plate fit just under half of them. Also of note, some rear mounting plates have an upward lip that will prevent the fastener from fitting flush with the plate. I simply took an angle grinder to shave off one side until it fit into the space between the rear fork and sat snugly on the mounting plate. Overall this problem was easily solved with an angle grinder and $0.35 at a hardware store to buy a shorter M9 bolt. I felt that this did not detract from the quality of the stand (which I would buy again), but also felt that this could be a source of frustration for anyone expecting to install it without having to modify the installation parts.
Easy to install, out of the way and sturdy. Great kickstand. Have one of four bikes between me and my partner
Bought this for my bike after purchasing a child bike seat. Now that it is installed I can dismount from my bike and be assured my bike won’t tip over. Plus it looks slick on my Linus roadster. Cheers VeloOrange
