Well, Milwaukie, Oregon, the Portland suburb where my Dad now lives, has one-upped London, and installed a complete bicycle repair station on a commuter route into Portland. Multitool, drivers, tire irons, box wrenches, even long-handled hex wrench for those hard-to-reach repairs. And, of course, it has a floor pump.
Milwaukie, always in my mind a relatively "blah" working/middle class suburb, somewhere in between the white trash Tonya Harding area far to the East and the tony western slopes where Intel engineers and urban professionals reside, now has a new "MAX" light rail connection direct to downtown Portland, not to mention good bicycle routes. Oh, and they have a great Sunday farmers' market in a manageable size.
