Click Stand

Click Stand, the folding bicycle stand, another handy piece of kit, that Garry likes to use.

Passepartout, Garry’s bike isn’t equipped with a stand, so Garry always has to find a tree or post of some kind to lean his bike against when he stops!

This was a particular problem when he cycled across the Nullabor Plain, back in 2012! Garry’s solution, then, was to carry a stick, which wasn’t that practical, but served it’s purpose and gave Garry somewhere to lean his bike.

Garry still likes to lean his bike up against something, particularly when stopping for the night. It usually means that Passepartout can be securely locked to something. But there is the odd occasion when there just isn’t anything, that’s when the Click Stand comes in handy!

Basically, the Click Stand is a tent pole with a cradle on one end and a fat rubber foot on the other, designed to stop it sinking into the ground.

The Click Stand is very sturdy and is more than able to support a fully loaded touring bike.
