As we often need create do some spike before we create detailed tasks for stories., do you add spike task for the stories before you do detailed task breakdown and estimation for the story?

Thanks,

Why do you generall need a spike task? And if you don't know how to break the story into tasks, how could you estimate it?

Curious, Ilja
