Bicycling is a brilliantly green way to get around and new products are always being designed to appeal to cyclists. Now, equipment that used to be available only at bike shops or in home basements and garages is popping up in cities, colleges and corporate campuses around the country. Called Public Bike Repair and Maintenance, commercial grade bike pumps and bike repair stands are being installed in “public” locations that are readily accessible to cyclists but bolted into concrete to prevent theft. Velodome Shelters is getting in on the trend with their latest products, a new Deluxe Public Work Stand and Wheel Chock. A sleek looking fixture, the Deluxe Public Work Stand enables cycling enthusiasts to make repairs while on the road, day or night and the Wheel Chock enables two bikes to be repaired at one time. The stand incorporates all of the necessary tools to maintain and repair bicycles and get cyclists back on the road.
