These Awesome Public Bike Repair Stations Let You Fix Your Bike for Free

These super useful bicycle repair stations have been popping up over Cambridge to encourage biking and make it easier for cyclists to fix their stuff. From the looks of it, there's all the basic tools you need to fix your bike and an air pump to pump flat tires.

So far, there are three free public bike repair units in various locations across the city. Cambridge officials say they actually got the idea from MIT, who has had these sort of stands for years, and that each station costs the city approximately $1,000. Not a bad investment to try to get people to bike more.

For those curious, the stands are located at Harvard Square, outside the main library and at Fresh Pond. [Boston.com via Boston Biker]
