Carbon stick stand

Hi does anyone use or recommend a carbon stick stand.... most are only on EBay and are under $20.00. My bike is a carbon Specialized flat bar road .... or any other lightweight alternatives for a stand?
thanks all

I find a tree or something to lean it against works best.

No. If I need to keep it upright, I keep riding.

The Click stand has worked well for me fo nine years, supporting a fully loaded touring bike. I usually simply lay it down, or lean it against a tree or other object, but there are times it is useful. I have also used it on tour to support a tarp.

Upstand (https://upstandingbicycle.com/shop/t...muter-upstand/) works great! I prefer this non-folding version as it is a bit more robust. I had folding one previously and it worked fine for 2.5 years but eventually it broke: cord that holds it together pulled through the eyelet which was holding one of its ends. It was mostly my error though - I was tightening something on my bike (don't even remember now what it was) and put quite a lot of pressure on the bike.

Nice product. I don't know if I would use it on a fully loaded touring bike, but that isn't really its purpose. For a "normal" bike it would be perfect. They are a good company. They are the ones who make the bicycle racks for motorcycles.
