I bot similar btwin stand made of aluminium which is discontinued i think.it always becomes loose when parked and comes between the pedals..Has to make it tight more often..Finally i removed the stand..And bot rear stand...
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The center stand has few advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are that the stand can be applied when you are seated on the bike and secondly it brings rigidity because it is at the center of the bicycle. The disadvantage is the pedal coming in the way of the stand when you are trying to fold the stand. This happens only when the bicycle was moved backward when the stand was applied. This is the situation with all center stands which is why we recommend the side stand though the center stand is lower in price.
Regarding the stand slipping out, I would suggest getting the threading checked at our workshop. If the threading is fine they will fix the stand rigidly.

It creates a problem while parking a cycle It stuck between pedals.
It will be grate if you help us to change with back stand.
Not positive about this product.
problem while parking a cycle It stuck with pedal
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The centre stand which you have purchased is installed exactly behind the bottom bracket. The stand will be a hindrance to the pedal at certain angles of the pedal. This is usually explained by the sales manager which is why we have stands at different price points. The advantage of this stand is that it holds the bicycle at the centre increasing the stability. I suggest you explain the same to the store you have purchased the bike from and they might be willing to exchange the stand for you if it is in good condition.

Stand is not that worth ...u should maintain the stiffness of the stand
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. The stand if fixed rigidly and the length is adjusted accurately will not have any problems in it's functional performance. Please let us know where you faced a problem with the stand and we will certainly help you.

Does the job
Nice and easy to install, you get to optiontional ways to install depending on your bike. If your bike already has the bracket then it's an 8mm Allen key required, remove the extra plate this would not be needed then it just bolts to your bike. If you don't have the bracket already welded to your frame then you will need the plate and the bolt. Height adjustment is easy just a 2-3mm Allen key. The stand is easy to kick out and put back due the the sringloaded mechanism it sits nice on my btwin hybrid bike. Would recommend this product
Bought this for my rockrider 340. The top mount is way too big. Very difficult to attach and needs to be off centre to leave room for the gear cable and keep away from the wheel. Invest a bit more money and go for the one tgst mounts to the leg
Nice quality, seems sturdy
Fitting and awkwardness
I always use a bike stand to support my bikes when I am not riding them.
Keeps my bike upright when I'm not on it.
nothing bad to say
It's all I want. It looks great and perfect fits in the designed place of my Original 500 Hybrid bike. It's also strong and firm when in use. The only issue is that I didn't have an 8mm allen key so I had to buy one to proceed the installation. So if you don't have either, take your bike to a Decathlon store, staff are very friendly to help you.
Sticks out from the bike more than previous stands But doesn't get in the way while riding
Easy to fit and stands the bike better than any st
Nothing worth noting
Perfect fit into existing bracket on my partner's B'Twin Riverside 500 Crosstrekking bike with alternative fixings if needed.
Be aware if using existing drilled bracket to fix, the bolt needs a large hex key and regardless of this, a very small hex key is required to adjust the length of the stand's leg.
Fits perfectly into the frame bracket on the bike
Need at least one hex key to fit/adjust
