CC Outtake/QOTD: Curbside Bike Repair Station – What Tools Would A Curbside Car Repair Station Have In Order To Be Useful?

CC 212 019 700

I spotted this recent addition on the University of Oregon campus recently. It’s a bike repair station, with an assortment of tools secured by cables, and an air pump. 

The bike is suspended by its seat post between those two padded rods at the top. I wonder how useful it is; pretty much every emergency repair I’ve had to make is a flat, and I don’t see a patch kit dispenser. Actually, a couple of years back, we snapped one of the chains on our tandem, not at all far from here. I wouldn’t have been able to fix that here.

So what tools would a curbside car repair station have in order to be useful?
