A God-send for Punctured Inner Tubes
These dispensing machines are a great idea for taking the stress out of the lives of cyclists who find themselves with a punctured inner-tube and miles away from any bike shop (or one closed on a Sunday).
They have a range of sizes and valve types and yes, 7€ is a bit more than you'd pay at your local Fahrradwerkstatt, but if you have ever been unfortunate enough to have suffered a busted inner-tube and no easy way to get back home, you would know that ten times the price would seem fair.
I have seen them all over Berlin (and memorised their location just in case), as well as on long distance cycle paths such as the Oder-Neiße-Radweg. This one is on the market place at Torgau.
