U-Fix-It Bike Station

Kerr Bikes

As I cruised along the riverfront heading to the Portland Saturday Market, the path was packed with cyclists and pedestrians enjoying the sunny afternoon. I was happy to spot a free, self-service bike repair station, because my bike seat needed to be raised a bit.

I liked that the station made the tools needed for basic repairs accessible to the passerby, as well as empowered cyclists to do it themselves. For the inexperienced mechanic, it can be easy to pass even the simplest repairs and adjustments to a trained professional, but then you'll never learn.
