If you've noticed the increase in threaded holes appearing on the inner left hand side chainstay, but are so far unaware of what they accommodate, then grab a Pletscher kickstand.
The holes are designed to attach the 'Comp' kickstand, a stand which manufacturers such as Giant, Cannondale and Merida are now working into their frame designs. The small, welded on plate eliminates the need for a clamp, as featured in most traditional designs.
