Seen in the 7th district in Vienna

A machine that sells inner tubes for bicycles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There's a similar one in front of the Cooperative Fahrrad. I really like that idea and hope there will be many more. Cause sometimes an inner tube can be everything you need in the middle of the night or a weekend :-).

A so-called Schlauchomat

I think this is a great Idea,you always seem to need an Inner Tube at the most odd times and cannot get one. In the City some Bike Shops are open on Sunday but not all of them. The further out you go from the City Centre the less inclined they are to be open on Sunday so it would be very Handy to have Dispensers outside a Closed Bike Shop. However there is the Vandalism factor with them being smashed just for fun and not necessarily out of need.Dublin Ireland.

when I read your post I was wondering where in the 7th district it is... for those who are interesseted... it´s in the Siebensterngasse, corner Mondscheingasse. A tube costs 6.50€ ;-)
