Bike Fixtation is a DIY bicycle repair station recently launched to serve stranded bicycle riders in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. The smart initiative offers self-service kiosks on an extended-hours basis for bicyclists.
The guys from Bike Fixtation share their knowledge to others who want to start a small self-service bicycle repair kiosk in their own town, with all different items such as a customized vending machine selling inner tubes, patch kits, lights, snacks, drinks, sunscreen, or the bicycle repair stand and the self-contained inflator. Setting up your own Bike Fixtation would help the local cycling community as it provides useful service. In addition, I see an interesting combination with the issue of vacant urban spaces.
