What is a Bike Fix-it Station?
Every Bike Fix-it Station includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance. Everything from changing a flat tire to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. Hanging your bike allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments. Each station also has an air pump to keep your tires inflated and ready to roll! The Bike Fix-It Station includes these tools:
- Philips and flat head screwdrivers
- 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm Allen wrenches
- Headset wrench
- Pedal wrench
- 8, 9, 10, 11mm box wrenches
- Tire levers (2)
