We have all seen self-service bicycle stations before, but at the Minneapolis Uptown Transit Station they have one that is worth taking note of: The Fixtation.
The Fixtation is more than just a bike repair station. It has everything you would expect it to, like Allen wrenches, screwdrivers, wheel wrench, adjustable wrenches, tire levers and even a no-cost pump to firm up those tires. But wait, there’s more.
The other aspect of the Fixtation is what makes it different from any other. Next to the stand is a unique vending machine. In this machine you will find the typical offering like drinks and energy bars, but you will also find things like multi-tools, lights, tire tubes, patch kits and more.
