High-end bicycles don’t have kickstands (or even a place to mount one if we tried), and yet we’ve grown tired of precariously balancing ours on walls or laying them flat on the ground. Evidently, Garrett Blake felt the same way, and invented a fix: Upstand. This clever stand is made up of two parts: one metal tab that installs through the skewer of your bike’s rear axle, and a separate stand that slips on and stays put thanks to strong axial magnets, just when your bike needs a break. While it’s not quite as convenient as a traditional fold-down stands – albeit close – it’s much lighter, comes in three lengths to accommodate wheels of different sizes, and snaps into its included clip that fits right below a water bottle cage for storage while riding.
