Previously on Loop-Frame Love: Mary Poppins had her original too-short Pletscher single kickstand switched for a double one that was also too short for her.
After being unsatisfied with what I found locally, I resorted to eBay, and got myself this adjustable-length double kickstand from a vendor in the States:
The stamp in the metal says YING CHENG TAIWAN. The legs screw out and are secured with a threaded nut.
Hubby chastised me for using my adjustable wrench and went and got the socket wrench set to do the last couple of turns. Wait, we have socket wrenches?
Bert got the other double-kickstand. I’ll feel way better about using Bert for kid-hauling now.
Mary also got a new old saddle, a comfy off-white Brooks vinyl model with springs underneath, that the eBay vendor said came off a Raleigh Twenty with a 1980 hub. It has saddlebag loops, so when I’m going crateless I can use my off-white saddlebag.
Coming up: in Part 2, Daisy gets a much-needed double kickstand too!
