Trailside Repairs

I've got to throw a shout out to Pedal the Planet for providing a great repair stand and tools at the trailhead of the Veteran's Park mountain bike trail.
Thw station has a stand to throw your bike on, pump and a multitude of tools to get you going. For people without bike specific tools, this is a huge help. You can roll up on the trail and do the necessary work. I always carry tools on me. But this is a great luxury with the stand and floor pump. It could definitely save some CO2 cartridges or a sore shoulder from 2,000 pumps on a mini-pump. Those 2.5" wide tires on the Troll take a lot of pumps to fill!

Way to go, PtP. Many thanks from a guy who rides hard enough to need lots of trail side repairs.

Get out there.

  1. That is cool! I've been to skateparks out west that have tool stands available to skaters but have never seen one for MTBers. Great idea!
