I have the same issue with the ride being too close with a straight stand, as I have a hanging floor tom on that stand. I just hacksaw off any extra boom I don't use. Less weight. My boom on my ride is maybe 4" long lol. It's a boom-ette lol. I keep the ride pretty low, so I don't have to break it down for travel either, I just fold the legs up. It's the only boom stand on my gig kit.

I'll never understand double braced legs. They just seem like a waste of metal. You could have 6 legs with that amount of metal.
