A brand new public bike repair station w/ air pump was just installed along the M-Path at Paciencia Park in South Miami. The station is located next to the South Miami Metrorail Station (Sunset Drive & US1).
It's great to see the project come to realization, earlier this year Malone Matson submitted her idea to the Miami Foundation - Public Space Challenge and was declared a winner. The Dero Fixit public bike repair station was installed by MDT and ideally will be utilized by bicycle commuters needing quick repairs along the M-Path.
Two more similar repair stations are tentatively scheduled to be installed at unconfirmed locations, though Coconut Grove seems likely. Government Center could greatly benefit from of one of these, the Adrienne Arsht Center (OMNI) Metromover/Bus Terminal at the Venetian Causeway would be another ideal candidate due to all the bicycle traffic to and from Miami Beach.
"The Dero Fixit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools and air pump are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments."
