3.2.8 Bike Sharing
Module 3: Repair
In this edition of our weekly “OV Fiets” bike-sharing case-study David Peck and Alessio Franconi discuss the design characteristics of the OV bike that make it particularly fit for repair.
- Number of parts: The OV fiets is designed to have fewer parts than common bikes: for example only one brake by backpedaling, or a dynamo inserted into the wheel hub, without a switch.
- The wearable parts are standard parts which are easy to procure and to change out/replace.
