Bikes are eco-friendly and fun, unlike coal trains, which are powered entirely by Christmastime disappointment. Hop on with this Groupon.
$35 for a Complete Bike Tune-Up ($70 Value)
During a complete tune-up, technicians clean and lubricate bike parts before inspecting their function. They inflate tires, true wheels, and adjust components such as brakes and the headset. If riders purchase new parts, the staff will install them free of charge. Finally, they oversee a test ride to ensure cycles ride smoothly.
Bike Boom functions as a fountain of youth for cycles that pass its threshold. Its technicians take in used and vintage models for renovation, transforming them into street-safe vehicles for all types of terrain. They track their makeover efforts on the shop's blog, highlighting retro specimens such as an overhauled Shogun Easy Street from the mid- to late ’80s and a ’70s Schwinn Collegiate Cruiser. Visiting guests can peruse the menagerie of multi- and single-speed road bikes, mountain bikes, and city bikes, which are designed for everyday trips around the block or up the walls of skyscrapers. Riders with a specific vision can also commission a custom-built cycle.
The professional mechanics in the repair shop perform tune-ups and install new parts. Shelves of accessories and gear—including helmets, locks, lights, and handlebar tape—equip pedalers for their commutes, and the staff readily orders items that aren't in stock or easily harvested from the derailleur tree in the backyard.
the guys were honest, very friendly, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the bike.matthew v., Yelp, 4/18/12
