What are the benefits of a public bicycle repair station?
Cycling has never been so accessible in the UK, and recently significant improvements have been made, such as segregated cycle superhighways and increased secure cycle parking facilities.
Public bike pump & repair stands, provide a convenient place for cyclists to make essential repairs or carry out maintenance to their bicycle. They can be located in communal areas, public spaces and are also a great addition to bike storage for schools, apartments and offices.
Public bike repair stations for more cycle-friendly routes
Public bicycle repair stations provide a fixed platform for cyclists to re-inflate tyres, tune bikes and make repairs whilst away from home. Installing these stations along popular routes improves the reliability of cycling as a mode of transport or recreational activity. Cyclists can be confident that if they get a puncture, facilities are nearby for the necessary repairs.
What’s in a public bike tool station?
Bike repair stands/stations incorporate a range of tools such as screwdrivers, tyre levers and chain tools. Some stations include an integrated pump, with other stations offering a separate standalone pump. Almost all including a pressure gauge. Public pumps are far more user-friendly and are quicker alternatives to portable bike pumps.
