The bike trail that I ride through is a corrugating/buckling/crumbling/unmaintained road surface. All my 3 ebikes (one with IZIP factory kickstand) rattle. The surface looks similar to this except that mine is covered with crumbled pavement surface.. the Spring tension in all my 3 ebikes are the same.That is clever....but a good kickstand with a good return spring shouldn't rattle.
That tape is used to hold a bolt stopper inside the housing to prevent the leg from over extending. That is the nature of using aftermarket parts, you have modify something for it to fit.I suspect that the vinyl tape around the hinge might be compensating for something needing attention.
It's not exactly a "rattle", the abrupt impact to bigger road bumps causes the leg of the kickstand to momentarily drop and then go back up, making a tapping noise as it hits the upper stop.That is clever....but a good kickstand with a good return spring shouldn't rattle.
I did the same route before and it softened the impact to the stopper, reducing the tapping noise into a soft thud. However, on repeated big bumps I am not comfortable if the kickstand would last a long time.I put a piece of adhesive back foam on the kickstand stand stop (in by the hinge). Only need a piece about 1/4" wide by 1" long. I thought about using a little silicone cabinet door bumper, but had the foam already. After 150 miles it's abraded a bit, but still silences the rattle on expansion joints.
I wish the class 6 roads I ride on in New Hampshire were that good. Besides the potholes that swallow bikes we have large rocks that "peek" up at'ya for a bone jarring slam. Never road an IZIP so I can't comment on the bike.The bike trail that I ride through is a corrugating/buckling/crumbling/unmaintained road surface.
