As urban cities become more and more bike-friendly, creations like the Bikestock Vending Machine will be introduced. Avid cyclists have experienced inopportune flat tires and other mishaps before, but unless they happen during the day, they often can't be fixed right away. In fact, the Bikestock Vending Machine was conceived when co-founder Matthew von Ohlen experienced a flat tire late at night on the Manhattan bridge.
Chock full of tubes, tools, ponchos and seasonal items, the Bikestock Vending Machine also offers food and beverages for those longer journeys. Provided nearby is an air station and tools to make to ensure cyclists get back on the road with minimal effort. Although currently there is only one location in Brooklyn, New York, the service hopes to expand.
