Bike Fixit Station

Bike Fixit Station includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments. Swing by the library for a tune-up, and then hop on Hines for a ride!
