I installed a third-party kickstand on my bike when I first got it. It's seen lots of riding, rain and now a winter.
I upgraded to a dual-leg kickstand for better balance when loaded down with utility runs. Bit after removing the kickstand bolt, I discovered the kickstand bracket was stuck to the frame.
After a could of gentle whacks I decided to educate myself a bit more before I broke something I'd regret. Any suggestions on how to break the pieces apart as cleanly as possible so I can install the new kickstand?
I only have a basic set of tools and no real workshop (but I do have a work stand). If it's anything advanced I'll head to the LBS and see what they suggest. Thought I'd try my hand at it first.
