Why do some bikes not have kickstands?

A rubber-coated cradle on one end rests under the bike’s top tube, while a rubber foot on the other end grips against the ground. The idea is that it can be folded up and carried in a backpack, jersey pocket or somewhere else when not needed, then taken out and opened up when it’s time to park your steed.

Can I put a kickstand on my mountain bike?

Are all kickstands the same size?
I assume you mean “kickstand” and not “repair stand”. Do you mean a kick stand that fits to the bike? Most kick stands designed to fit in the same place on the bike well be reasonably interchangeable, but not all. Some need cutting down on some bikes, but one of mine is adjustable for the height of the bracket.
