For minor issues: There is a bicycle repair station at the gate. This station is equipped with the most common tools to repair your bike and an air pump for all types of valves. Your bike can be hung up there so that you can do the repair comfortably. If you ever have a flat tire, you can get a repair kit from the gate staff.
