who's got a kickstand?

I think I need one, or am I just the worst bicycle-leaner in the world? Three time in a month my bike has fallen while locked. The last time the rim warped a bit.
I'm only asking because when I search for a kicksand, all I find are variants of the "Schwinn" model. Heavy, cumbersome and needing to be cut to length.

I have one. It's not the lightest around, but it is easily adjustable. A quick search in REI found the Avenir adjustable kickstand. It looks almost but not entirely completely different from what I have, but I would assume it does the job.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

I would get one, but my frame is rectangular so none of them fit on it. I dont mind not having one, they can get in the way and shake a bit while riding. I usually lean my back tire against something anyway to hold it up.

I have one on my commuter. With the panniers I don't want to lay the bike over (especially if I'm carrying the laptop).
