reports on the nifty Bike Fixtation, a self-service cycle-repair kiosk that is equipped with a sturdy repair stand, bike tools (firmly tethered by aircraft cables), a tire inflator, and a vending machine that dispenses parts, accessories, and even snacks. Alas, there’s only one kiosk up and running – in Minneapolis’ Uptown Transit Station – but Bike Fixtation owners Chad De Baker and Alex Anderson have the entrepreneurial spirit and cycling passion (“We're bike people,” their Web site proclaims) that could get this thing rolling.
