    Either a well placed stick or a rear tire wedged with a rock.

    A non windy day helps too...

    Yeah, I'm calling photoshop on that example. Look at where the front tire meets pavement...

    I use the method taught to me by a photographer from MBA. They call it the "1-2-3" method.

    You get the bike balanced as well as possible with an assistant holding the wheel of the bike. At the count of "3", the assistant lets go of the wheel (and gets back far enough not to be in the frame) for the brief moment the photo is snapped, and then grabs the bike just as it starts to fall. It's the simplest of low-budget, low-tech hacks that actually works quite well.

    Sometimes you can find just the right stick that can be concealed by the bike depending on the angle you shoot from.

    If you really want to get industrious, the monofilament fishing line method can also work for you, but that can be difficult to conceal when not shooting in a 'studio' environment LOL.
