Bikes are eco-friendly and fun, unlike coal trains, which are powered entirely by Christmastime disappointment. Hop on with this Groupon.
$39 for Complete Bike Tune-Up ($90 Value)
Complete bike tune-ups are usually finished in less than a week and include an extensive cleaning of the whole bike. Technicians remove the entire drivetrain—crank, derailleurs, and brake calipers—and degrease each section with a soak in a parts solvent. Minor wheel truing and readjustments for brakes and gears are also included. Depending on the age and condition of the bike, gears may need new cables, which can be purchased and installed for an additional $20.
Dan's Bike Shop
Dan's Bike Shop's expert spokesmen have been restoring sickly cycles back to health since opening in 1940. A complete bike tune-up inspects and thoroughly cleans bikes from handlebars to brakes, ensuring smooth sailing on rides across town or attempts to sneak into a regatta. Cranks, derailleurs, and brake calipers are removed and degreased in a relaxing hot tub of solvent while troublemaking brakes and gears undergo an attitude adjustment. Complimentary minor wheel truing helps settle bumpy rides, though new cables and a bike horn that plays John Phillip Sousa marches are not included.
