You know (if you like to ski/board) that most resorts will have tools for fixing your bindings, etc. at ski lifts.

Well - a city in the US has brought this to local cyclists with these public repair stations. Very cool Cool

Looks like a torture station for the local hoodlums!

Great idea though. Might be a looooooong time before we see one in Sydney!

Sydney City Council had a free tune up service at the Observatory this morning, looked kinda like that one...

It's just 2 blokes with a work stand and a COS dolly bird handing out leaflets.

Nice bunch though, I stopped for a chat when they had it set up last week. Couldn't do anything for my bent hanger though Sad

A coffee table and espresso machine....you could have a coffee while your friendly service attendant applies a drop of lube and adjusts your tyre pressure. Eye-wink or not!
