not crazy about it, but it looks ok to me. I'd rather keep my Muzzy system.

If it came from JC Whitney, you'd be better off with nothing.

Looks ok, but sounds really good. Thinking of swapping them out for the sarachus when I got the cash, they look nice :)
Btw, any of you fellers ever have any problems with the kickstand? It looks...really small (the foot), kind of scared i will tip over on a hot day....

It shouldn't tip over unless you park on liquefying asphalt (good, hot day) or soft dirt/sand/gravel. In those instances I try to use a square of steel/aluminum, a piece of angle, a piece of plywood (whatever I have nearby), or some have said a crushed pop can works wonders if you can't find anything else.

I have a piece of 1/4" thick 4" wide board from a broken section of wooden fence that I use for a support under my kickstand. in my apartment complex, I need to have it because our asphalt is really soft and crappy.

The kickstand is fine, I've used my bike as a chair many a time. If you're on any kind of incline though, remember to leave it in first (and take it out of first when you start it, bike has a tendency to buck when its started in first).
