How can I tell if I need the 285 or 305 mm rear kickstand?

Thanks,
Andy

For what wheel size? 285 is the standard one for most bikes.
Interestingly, a 26x2.0 and a 700-30 are very close to the
the same axle height and a 285 does both without cutting.
Kickstands may be trimmed if too long, directions on/in package.

Watch which way the bike falls over when you put it on the
stand.....................

LOL! Harsh but true. I gave up on kickstands for that reason, although
the BB mounted ones seem quite good.
