It was a small but welcome move to make the West End a more cycle-friendly place.
But a community council faces picking up the cost after vandals destroyed a newly-installed cycle pump.
A city first, the on-street pump on Argyle Street in Finnieston was only fixed in position in June.
The free amenity outside Sainsbury's and Big Licks was proving a real hit with cyclists.
Yorkhill & Kelvingove community council had said it wanted to make the district more cycle-friendly.
The idea was inspired by similar measures introduced in Manchester.
Council secretary Lee Grant said he was gutted by the vandalism.
He told Glasgow West End Today: "We are extremely disappointed this has happened.
"The community council is responsible for the cost of a replacement and the removal of the damaged pump.
"We can't understand the mentality of people who would do this."
He has asked for anyone with any information to get in touch.
In the meantime the council hopes the police can check CCTV in the area.
A posting about the vandalism has attracted a number of comments.
One person wrote: "How disappointing ? it's hard to understand why some people don't value their community, and the people that work hard for it."
Watch: The local community council only unveiled the bike pump in June.
Another said: "Sadly all too common in Glasgow. I'll stick £20 in towards the repair/replacement costs."
"Why do people feel the need to ruin things.... hope cctv turns up with a clear image," said another Facebook user.
"I know what I'd do with this if I caught them!" said another.
