Self-service bicycle repair stations are available in five locations in the Metroparks, courtesy of local bicycle organizations.
Each Fixit station, manufactured by Dero, includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike 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.
