Stands

Do you use bike stands, or just use the kick stand when you store your bike?

What are the stands even for, besides having a fancy stand?

Keep your tires off the ground so they don't flat spot if left for too long.
You can also use carpet and pump more air into the tires.

The stand makes is ALOT easier to wax/grease your chain and easier when you wash and service your bike. It also keeps your tire off of the cold ground during storage.
