We’ve all been there. Whether a punctured tube, or broken chain, there is nothing much worse than traveling a decent distance for a ride only to find out it’s over before it even began because you can’t get your hands on a common part. Even during a ride, things happen when we’re not prepared. Bike Fixtation has been trying to change that with public-use work stands & tools as well as their large vending machines which are the perfect way to dispense ride saving parts autonomously.
Now, Bike Fixtation has another bicycle craving crushing vending machine that is a little more suited to a number of locations…
Bike Fixtation has made a lot of people happy by saving rides that would have otherwise been doomed. Based in Minneapolis, MN, the company has been making bicycle repair stands and vending machines to be used at trail heads, along bicycle paths, high traffic areas as well as outside of bike shops.
The new wall mount unit can be ordered to operate via line-in or battery power allowing it to be placed virtually anywhere. It can hold up to 15 items and be ordered as “tube only” or “tube and parts”. It can be ordered to accept cash, (foreign & domestic) and credit/debit/gift cards. There is a sensor that if for some reason it doesn’t drop your chain, it will give you a refund. Like all of their products, security is the primary feature so it’s built using heavy gauge steel and a shatter resistant display window making it very difficult to break into.
If you know of a great place to put one of their units, contact your local bike shop or local cycling or transpiration organization. The wall mount vending machine comes with a 2 year warranty, is available in ten durable enamel colors, and retails for $3,175
