Rim-Killers

There are numerous bicycle stands in Karlsruhe, but if you look at them more closely you will find that most of them are the notorious Felgenkiller or Rim-Killers, so called because they only hold your bike by the front wheel, so if it happens to fall or be pushed over the front wheel could be bent out of shape.

Another disadvantage is that you can lock only the front wheel onto the stand, but not the frame of the bicycle, so if you are really unlucky you might come back to find the front wheel still there, but the rest of the bike gone.
