Never mind the wear and tear, often bicycles are the target of vandals, especially if cyclists ride to catch alternative transportation. Trek Bicycle wants to make it easier to get the parts you need when you need them. Their Trek Stop outpost has everything to fix a flat: patches, tubes and pump. If the rider needs patching, there are water bottles and energy bards.
The kiosk currently sits in Madison, Wisconsin because that is where Trek is headquartered, but it seems only logical that this will roll out nationwide.
You can also get whole bikes from vending machines:
