Racing bikes and higher end bikes dont have kick stands because the tubing is so thin on a light weight bike a kick stand will crush or deform your chain stays.....many manufactures will recommend not to install one on the chain stays........if you have an expensive ultra light dont do it...........use the stands that mount to the rear axle if you must
