Yes, this should be a quick fix. It comes down to the type of kickstand you have and the type of bolt it uses to attach to your bike.

Most clamp-on style kickstands [|look something like this]. Follow this procedure:

# Sandwich your bicycle's chainstays between the top plate and the bottom plate (which is attached to the kickstand).
# Feed the bolt down through the holes in the top plate and the bottom plate. The bolt is typically a 14 mm hex head type.
# Tighten the bolt using a 14 mm [|socket wrench] (if you don't have one, an [product|IF145-231|adjustable wrench] should work just fine).
# Be careful not to overtighten; you don't want to damage your bike frame by crushing the chainstays.

Some bicycles have a built-in kickstand plate. (Look for a flat piece of metal welded between the chainstays down near the bottom bracket shell, right behind where the cranks attach to your bicycle frame). Bikes with a built-in kickstand plate don't need the clamp-style kickstand shown above. Instead, you will need a kickstand that [|looks something like this].

These kickstands typically attach using a shorter allen head bolt. So you'll need an [|allen wrench] (usually 8 mm, but could be 10 mm or even 14 mm) to attach this style kickstand to your bike's existing kickstand plate.

Hope this helps!
