    +1 Or you put enough loose balls in the cup so that it looks like you can put one more in there but you really can't. The bearings should have room to move.

    You don't have to be elaborate about the storage of spokes. My daughter's touring bike has spoke storage built into the chainstay but mine doesn't. I just ziptie them under the rear rack.

    It looks like your kickstand was too loose which allowed it to move on the frame. That will erode the paint and metal. It's almost as bad as over tightening them.
