When I was a kid, everybody's bike had a kickstand. Now, it seems that nobody has one. Thing it, I really dislike having to lean my pike up against stuff, it's never stable, and more often than not my bike ends up lying on the ground, resting on the deraileurs and pedals and handlebars. I've looked around in some bike shops, and it seems like nobody even carries kick stands and the cycle guys in those shops throw some attitude my way whenever I ask for them. What's up with that? I want a kick stand, by golly! I don't think that makes me a loser!
