Fits ALL Thorn models with Rohloff dropouts (except Mercury) to enable a ESGE KS18 Propstand to fit. (SJSC#26518)

NOTE: if a rear rack is fitted you need to use one of the regular dropout adaptors on the other side to balance the central fitting of the rack, this will need to be bent out to accommodate the extra width of the adaptors (if not allready fitted on the bike) the replacement items (SJSC#49690 or SJSC#11703) are in the associated items further down this page.

This is the ONLY way to fit a Kick/Prop stand to one of these bikes without voiding the frame warrany.

This still needs to be used with care, many of our reservations still apply, you could break this adaptor or the stand if overloaded, but importantly this wont damage the bike frames integrity in any way!

Required to fit to the frame : 2 x M5x12mm socket cap bolts. The stand bolts to it with M6x20mm socket cap bolts, we recommend the use of Loctite or split washers on the stand bolts.(no fitting hardware included)

bends when used with loaded bike

ConsBends when used with a loaded bike
ProsOkay for bike without any baggage
I bought this about two years ago with the recommeded pletscher stand. After two years of use I have had to remove it because it has bent so much that the bike topples over when using the stand. I have just watched a youtube video for a review of the Nomad Mark 3 bike where the reviewer has experienced the same issue. I have used the stand with a loaded bike but not carrying excessive weight - no more that 10 KGs. Just my opinion but I don't think this is fit for purpose.
SJS Customer Service:
A stand is SUCH a great thing to have that they get used a lot, this adaptor allows a stand to be used with our Rohloff bikes that offers no threat to the integrity of the frame, however the downside is that (although VERY expensive) it is deemed to be "sacrificial" like a derailleur gear hanger. It's true, unless the rider is very careful where and how they use this item it WILL bend as described.
Useful but restricted in application if you want to fit a rack as well.

I recommend this product
ConsRequires careful matching of stand and rack if you wish to use both.
ProsAllows fitting of a stand without risking damage to the frame.
A useful accessory that allows you to fit a prop stand but I found that (in order to clear the recommended Esge KS18 Comp 18 Flex Stand) a Tubus classic style rack foot has to be spaced out significantly wider than the turret provided on the mount. In the end I was not happy with this arrangement and had to choose between rack or stand. This is likely to be the case with any rack which has structure more than a few mm to the rear of the lower mounting hole. It would appear from photographs that the Thorn Expedition Rack does not have these clearance issues but I have not tried one personally.

Will it fit with Thorn rear rack? Can you ship to the United States?
01 Sep 2021
I am the owner of a Mk1Thorn Nomad with the Rohlhoff dropouts, located in Pittsburgh PA in the US.

Assuming it will fit with the Thorn rear rack installed, would you be able to ship me an adapter, and corresponding KS18 ESGE kickstand?

Thank you!

Would this work with a thorn Sherpa?
Unfortunately only Rohloff specific bikes.
