Mobile bike repair vans are gaining a lot of traction among busy cyclists who don't want to load half a dozen bikes and cart them to the bike shop, wait two weeks, and then come back to pick them up. And companies like VeloFix and Beeline Bikes cater to cyclists who might feel intimidated by the traditional bike shop "insiders-only" vibe. But with this Amazon.com-ification of services, what happens to the culture of cycling, often centered around well-known, deeply-stocked stores like Vecchios and The Bicycle Trip? Editor-in-Chief Neal Rogers talks with all these people to see how mobile shops and brick-and-mortar shops compete...and how they can work together.

    I would love to have a mobile bike shop in my area- regional South Australia. I would definitely use it- but probably not that often- once they fixed all my current problems :)
    I think it would be the way to go-as a mechanic.
