Similar to "amenity=drinking_water;potable=no",
it's problematic to tag something and then try to reverse the meaning
with another tag.
For example non-bicycle data consumers won't interpret the subtags,
and will think there's a shop
at the location.

Note:
A similar concept exists for skis.  Ski repair stations have
screwdrivers, a table,
sometimes a wax removal device, and other tools for fixing skis and snowboards.

In each case the "operator" is normally the property owner or manager
of the property.

---------------
If you want to "bikeshed" the tagging, perhaps seek
"amenity=repair_station;repair_station:type=[bicycle/ski/auto]".
Or just be happy and find some repair stations to map.
