I am told that there are more than 300 million bicycles in China and outdoor bicycle repair stalls like this one can be found almost everywhere. They keep there overheads low and there prices are cheap.
I found this one on a quiet side street in Yangshuo and while these tiny business are common, seeing one with a sign in written in English is not. Clearly this business owner is targeting the foreign tourists that visit this area.

Such a lazy scene, well shall I say 'slow paced' imagery. Amazine shot, I like it!
All the best!
