The second most popular question about the SideCar has been: “Can I use it with a Kickback?” closely followed by “How?” (The most popular question is “When can I get one?” the answer to which is “Late February 2013.”)
To ease your concerns we’ve created a quick photo tutorial.
To help you assemble and use your new SideCar, we've made a short instructional video:
Two important details that didn't make into the video:
Insert the front stem into the bike so that 3-3/4" (95mm) of the stem is outside of the frame tube, then adjust the rear stem so that the platform is parallel to the center line of the bike. This ensures that there is enough of the stem engaged with the frame, but still allows room for the KickBack or kickstand.
The large Nylock nut may not be screwed all the way down on some axles. It is a Nyloc so there is little chance of it unthreading, however you can tighten it down to the stop to reduce the amount of horizontal play in the axle. Some play in the system is normal, do not over-tighten the nut.
