Some bikes get kickstands; some do not.
This is a steel-framed Bianchi Pista, and despite sporting a front brake, handlebar-mounted water bottle and completely jacked-up 46cm Salsa Cowchipper handlebar—not the sorts of thing a traditionalist would employ when contemplating either the lane-splitting life of a bike messenger in downtown Chicago or the next mad velodrome sortie—it does not and will not be found anywhere near a kickstand.
A kickstand is fine for the folding bike or the two-speed Schwinn—I hate how autocorrect always changes Schwinn to Schwann, like Schwann made thousands of heavy, heavy steel-framed bicycles in Chicago in the 1960s—but it is anathema to a fixed-gear bike with lots of places to go and no places to stop pedaling.
Anyway, I can always lean it against the van.
