Repair stations are also tagged with amenity=compressed_air Brycenesbitt (talk) 18:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Similar repair stations exist, usually at resorts, for fixing skis and snowboards. Brycenesbitt (talk) 19:04, 15 November 2014 (UTC)


this tag is getting confused with bicycle repair shops. What to do about it? Brycenesbitt (talk) 16:05, 14 September 2016 (UTC)


opening_hours=destination does not make sense in my eyes. If the bicycle repair station is accessible 24/7 then opening_hours=24/7 if it is inside a building and the building is not open 24/7 and has opening hours then the opening hours of the repair station are the same like the opening hours from the building. There are exactly 0 objects tagged with opening_hours=destination at the moment. --Klumbumbus (talk) 19:39, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

I fully agree. --Scai (talk) 17:17, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
We don't have good support for objects inheriting properties of parents. I'd rather be warned a given station may be closed, without having to duplicate the opening hours. Brycenesbitt (talk) 18:47, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
*=destination means, that your are only allowed to use the object, if there is no other way. This does not fit in the opening_hours key. --Klumbumbus (talk) 19:30, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

chaintool vs. chain_tool

I'm not a native speaker, but I think the correct english word is "chain tool" and not "chaintool". Therefore the key should be service:bicycle:chain_tool=*. We don't want to create such a bad situation like power=sub_station --Klumbumbus (talk) 19:39, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

-- I have changed it. Note that the community hates bulk tag renaming, but if it that feeling changed, then fixing things like this would be easy. Brycenesbitt (talk) 20:55, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

There are reasons for not doing such huge mechanical tag changes. Therefore this feeling will likely not change in the future. However in this case, there were only 6 nodes with this tag and 4 of them were from you. So I don't see a problem with changing the key with this low number.--Klumbumbus (talk) 23:06, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
Please ask again for the preset change of the ID editor.--23:07, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Why not add compressed_air to bicycle repair station ?

Why not 'delete' Tag:amenity=compressed_air, and add compressed_air=yes/no to Tag:amenity=bicycle repair station ? Because, a compressed air pump is also to 'repair' a bicycle, and also, there is sometimes 'confusing' when there is only a standalone public 'hand pump' ->

Deprecation of approved tag service:bicycle:diy?

Recently this page was edited to strike-out the common tag service:bicycle:diy which was approved in the original proposal ( Until recently this key was more common than service:bicycle:tools, which was created several years later:***/service:bicycle:diy/&***/service:bicycle:tools/

Should service:bicycle:diy by deprecated? Why? --Jeisenbe (talk) 21:31, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Hey, we are working on a tool and during discussions this came up. In our opinion, a repair station is a pole with either tools, a pump or both. This implies by default that it is DIY, so service:bicycle:diy is a quite redudant and doesn't make sense in this context - both in cases of a pump or a toolstand it is DIY.
The tag for diy does make sense when applied on a bicycle shop which also offers tools though!
Note that in some cases, a bicycle repair station is solely a pump, not offering tools. For that, 'service:repair:tools' is semantically better to make the distinction.
And yeah, there is some ambiguity with amenity=compressed air too...
Also, this should have been communicated better by me, sorry about that.

I'm thinking we have to separate out the services documentation from the specific amenities (pumps/repair stations/shops). For example, a community centre can offer DIY cycle services, or a café can also sell bikes (fashionable these days!). If we do that, we can make a neat table of which services are needed or implied on what kind of feature Joost schouppe (talk) 07:13, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
