Purchased along with a new bike for my daughter's birthday. The stand says it will fit bikes 16"-20" however the 20" bike we bought was too tall for the stand so the bike just falls over.
I'm sorry to read that the stand did not fit. Could you kindly reply to me with the make and model of bike? This stand fits the b'twin 16" and 20" junior bikes. If it does not fit, please feel free to return it to us for a refund or an exchange.

very good and seems to be strong enough for my daughter
Good product easy to fit.
Easy to fit.
I bought the kick stand for my daughter's 20 inch bike. When I fitted it ,it looked too short to support bike. I was about to have the inconvenience of returning it when I decided to read the reviews. Some reviewers had the same or similar problem. Then I read the reply from Decathlon's UK MD, who pointed out that the kick stand's arm is telescopic, oops!
Saved me the trip and embarrassment . But like others, I think because the instructions are so microscopic and do not point out in words on the packaging that the stand is telescopic, most of us miss this seemingly obvious inclusion. Please make it more obvious on the instructions.please.
Sturdy and telescopic
Fitted to (non-Decathlon) 14" wheel bicycle in quick time to save bike from extra scratches and risk of being dropped on ground. Great.
Good price, well made and easy to fit.
Good product! Adjustable, easy to use
Easy to attach
I have two kids bikes, a Specialized Hotrock 16 and a Hoy Bonaly 16. On the Hoy it is barely short enough to support the bike without it toppling over though it needs to be parked on a slope with the stand facing downhill. On the Specialized it is too long, the stand holds the bike upright so it cannot be used, the bike would fall over. Useless for both my 16 inchers, not recommended.
Looks sturdy and well made
Too long, useless for 16" bikes
Unfortunately the kickstands are not compatible with 100% of bikes that are not made by Btwin, so apologies that it has not fitted your two bikes. If you would like to return the product to one our stores, or via our online service for an exchange or refund, please don't hesitate.

Nothing more to say
When fitted it was too short for a 20 inch bike.
Thank you for posting your review of the b'Twin 20" kick stand. I'm so sorry to read that it is too short for your 20" junior bike.
If you have a 20" b'Twin bike it should be the correct length as the stand is telescopic. I'm sorry to read that it does not fit your make and model of bike. Please don't hesitate to return your kickstand to store for a refund or an exchange.
We do sell a longer version for 24", 26" and 28" bikes which may be more suitable.
If you would like to forward us the name and make of your bike, we may be able to help.
