There’s no school like the old school.

Every summer I come across one or more person who is walking their bike having gotten a puncture and are without a means of either repairing it or replacing the offending tube with a new one.

The good folks at Schwalbe have the answer! An innertube dispenser. These could be installed along the Chicago Lakefront Trail or along busy thoroughfare where people have encountered tire punctures.

Check out their information page on innertubes: Schwalbe Inner Tube Info (PDF).

And if you are riding along some of our less than ready protected bike lanes you might want to consider asking the city to install one there as well. (Chuckle)
