Kyle demonstrates to Orlando Sentinel Repair stands

They look like durable robots or metal servants and they are popping up on trails across Central Florida, providing personal service for bicycle adventuring.

They are do-it-yourself bike-repair stations, standing at attention at 5 feet tall with a pair of 18-inch, parallel arms at the top and a sidekick at their heels. Tethered from about neck high are screwdrivers, wrenches, tire tools and more.

What You Need to Know

Price: $950
Weight: 20.5 lb (M)

The Sora components (and the wheels) let you know right away this isn't an expensive bike, but the ride makes you forget that. Sitting in with the lead group on a long, flat stretch, spinning along as easily as those on $10,000 bikes, responding to potholes or gravel with little flicks of the bike to either side, trimming speed to stay on pace, and dropping back to pull two other riders up to the group—what I had underneath me was a capable all-rounder.
