Bike Fixtation is an appropriately called self-service bicycle repair station that comes with compressed air, a vending machine that sells drinks and spare parts and a bike stand complete with tools attached to it.

Started by two guys known only as Chad and Alex, Bike Fixtation's gig is to sell the vending machines to entrepreneurs in bike-friendly cities. So far there's just one installed, at a train station in their home city of Minneapolis, but we'd like to see the trend catch on and expand to other cities. At the very least these ought to do well in cities that still have a bike messenger presence.
