Today’s Service Station
I’m sure just about everyone within a mile of one of these public bike repair stations knows exactly where it is—these are remarkably useful pieces of hardware for the urban commuter. Dero makes the pictured Fixit bike repair station, meant for businesses and city government installations for public use. The heavy duty repair stand has a selection of tamper resistant tools and an air pump for tending most repairs on the fly. It even has QR codes for smartphone users to lookup common repair how-tos.
The Fixit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools and air pump are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments.
