Robert says
They're wrong about this one. Quality bike mechanics are very inexpensive to hire. You can get somebody with a decade experience for 30k/year. The sort of automation that could do all the tasks of a human mechanic would cost 100k just in raw materials. The assembled robot with all its software would cost millions, and powering or servicing the system would be a huge resource suck. It would take decades for a shop owner to recoup that investment, and it would be a hustle. Plus, the robot can't suggest and sell add-ons. The cost/benefit analysis leans heavily towards humans on this one.

I don't think a robot would fix a bicycle anyways. If my bicycle broke down, I should fix it manually with no problem.
