Cyclists Can Buy Bike Parts Using Express Biker's Kiosks

Express Biker has introduced a new way to buy new bike parts in New York City. The company realizes that getting a flat tire is inconvenient, especially if it happens anytime outside the nine-to-five window that traditional brick and mortar stores are open. To increase convenience for the cyclists of NYC, Express Biker has added two 24-hour self-serve vending machines that dispense items like various tools, bike parts and tire patch-up kits.

To make things even more convenient, credit cards and cell phones can be swiped to make a payment. Although there are only two machines currently, Express Biker is looking to increase its number of locations, particularly in high-traffic areas and near gas stations. This initiative is commendable for encouraging sustainable transportation by increasing convenience for the city’s cyclists.
