New Thing for Bike

Bike Fixtation.  It’s a self-service ‘bay’ where you can get your wheels spinning again after an equipment failure.  The idea is that they’ll be located near transit hubs, such as train stations, where the nexus of commuters would converge.

“Bike Fixtation offers self-service kiosks on an extended-hours basis for bicyclists… You can buy a tube or patch kit, pump up your tires for free, and make simple adjustments using supplied tools.”

Currently, the only two are located in Minneapolis… but it’s a neat idea, and I hope it takes off.  I’d rather see a Bike Fixation on every corner, as opposed to the Starbucks’ that lurk everywhere.
