Since the 60's I've always been told and though that putting a kickstand on a bike was a "faux pas". Early on I used a flick stand (anybody remember those). For the past 30 years I just haven't used anything on either my road (now hybrid) or mtn bikes. However, I'm beginning to rethink the issue. My wife and I just purchased replacement hybrids and am concerned about the typical scratches and paint chips we have accumulated over the past years. Living in FL, I see more and more better bikes with stands on the trails. So I'm just wondering how many of you have stands and what might be the best kind to purchase.
