The University of Saskatchewan is the first Canadian school to install a new type of unmanned bike repair station, which has taken off in the U.S., reports The Sheaf. Students can use the outdoor Dero Fixit station to pump up tires, tighten screws and more. The University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union and the Arts and Science Students’ Union split the $1,868 cost of the unit itself. The Office of Sustainability paid $3,000 for the construction of its concrete foundation. Many other schools in Canada have indoor bike repair shops, which are often staffed by volunteers.
