That is perhaps the reason why new services for bicycle riders start to become interesting business concepts.
Bike Fixtation is a DIY bicycle repair station vending machine recently launched to serve stranded bicycle riders in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area in the USA.
The place offers all equipment needed to get unlucky bicycle riders back on the track. Through the vending machine you can buy a tube or patch kit, pump your tyres for free, and make simple adjustments using supplied tools. Bike Fixtation is open for 365 days a year from six in the morning to midnight.
