Self-serve station ... for bikes

Bike service station

Campus bikers can air their tires and make repairs at a new bike station strategically placed near the bike rack on the Memorial Union's west side. The stainless steel station includes a mount that lifts bikes up for easy access, and provides eight bicycle tools and a tire pump. All are securely bolted or cabled to prevent theft.

The project was a joint effort, funded by the Government of the Student Body and the Inter Residence Hall Association. Products of Minneapolis-based Bike Fixation, the repair stand with tools costs roughly $1,000, and the pump is about $750. An additional stand-alone pump will be installed near Parks Library later this summer. Photo by Bob Elbert.
