The Trucker Kickstand Plate is designed to allow you to install most center-mount kickstands like the GreenField or Pletscher Double Leg Kickstand on the Surly Long Haul Trucker or Disc Trucker touring bikes. These plates allow the clamping force of the kickstand to be spread evenly across both chainstays. Due to their unique shape, they will only fit the Long Haul Trucker or Disc Trucker frames and could damage other frames if they don't line up properly.
Includes upper and lower plates
Works with most center-mount kickstands
Fits 700c and 26" models
Compatible with Surly Long Haul Trucker and Disc Trucker frames

Excellent product & shipped faster than expected. Does the job well & allowed me to mount a double-leg kickstand on my Surly Disc Trucker touring bike without risking damage to the chainstays. Surly's website recommends against mounting kickstands to the chainstays without this adapter, and for good reason- the chainstays on the LHDT are rather thin & do look like they could be damaged by a stand directly on them or over-tightening the bolt/plate that comes standard with most kickstands. This product does a great job of solving that problem.
I personally would recommend using grease like Polylube (which is also available from Tree Fort Bikes at the moment) on the bolt before tightening it through the adapter to make sure that it doesn't rust & can be removed or adjusted more easily later on. That's what I did & I'm very happy with how it all looks & feels now.
I used this to attach the BV Double-Leg Kickstand to my Surly & couldn't be happier with how it turned out. :)
