Whilst cruising through Millvale looking for Stu’s Tag-O-Rama tag (with no luck of course) campV got a flat/leak. It was great to be able to ride over to the 43rd street, Lawrenceville, headquarters of BikePgh to use the easily-accessible outdoor tools and pump to get road-ready again.

Nice set-up. Well appreciated!

Thanks ;-)

You’re welcome. Glad folks are putting it to use.

Walnut Capital just added a fixit to Bk Sq near Anthropologie and the Toy Store.

Is there one downtown at the new Bike Parking facility? Or anywhere downtown? Other than borrowing from GTBR, of course.

I’ve heard it said the Third Ave Garage has one. Don’t know of any others Downtown, but I’m not there often.

BTW, Scott, to whom should issues with the stands (say, a busted pump) be reported to?

3rd Ave garage has one. The city hasn’t installed any of fixits, ie, they are all privately installed, so the owner should be contacted.

You can also tell us, and we’ll see what we can do. where is there a busted pump?

Pitt campus (Forbes & Bouquet/Law School). Air comes out (of a tire) but doesn’t go in…

I have pump, some instruments, some kind of lubricant, and patch kit at work at Ansaldo at 1000 Technology Drive. So if you need something just stop and ask guards to call Mikhail. They all know me. :)

I used it during my fit of flats. I found it very helpful.

thanks buffalo x2.

Those pumps are shite, and need fixed a bunch.

i’ll pass the word along, but it might be good to notify pitt as well.
