Ben Verdugo, the Operations Manager for the Uptown Community Parking District, sent us word that the Parking District just made the city’s first bike corral on 5th and University Avenue even more friendly with the installation of a Dero bicycle Fixit Station next to the corral. This Fixit Station is the same as the one located in the Whole Foods parking lot across from their bike racks. Below are some photos Verdugo sent in:

The Dero Fixit Service Stations are designed to help riders fix minor problems that they may encounter while riding. The stations are described as follows:

You are riding home from work when you notice your bike needs some adjusting. The bike shop is closed and out of your way, so now what? Fixit to the rescue!

The Fixit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools and air pump are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments.
