Much like robots, children, and robotic children, bikes need to be regularly recalibrated to keep them from developing human emotions. Keep your bike performing at its functional best with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a bicycle tune-up at Elite Cycling in Leawood (a $79 value).
Elite Cycling's skilled mechanics recuperate bicycles and keep them road-ready with professional, full-service tune-ups. Talented technicians survey two-wheeled steeds for damage—patching up any injuries sustained from mailman attacks—before professionally tensioning and truing wheels to ensure straightforward navigation. To ensure safe, smooth rides, cycling gurus adjust derailleurs, brakes, and shifting gears before tightening all bolts. Technicians then examine and lubricate chains to allow for smoother pedaling when bikers commute or chase after flyaway toupees.
Though focused on bicycles, Elite Cycling equips athletes for both triathlon and bicycling events with both cycling and running equipment and apparel. Along with a cavalry's worth of racing bikes from brands such as Cervelo, Felt, Jamis, Ridley, and Surly, the store stocks athletic shoes from such brands as K-Swiss and Newton. Triathaloners will find the store stocked with wet suits, swim goggles, and other gear. To ensure customers find the ideal frame during fit analyses, the staff asks series of questions to determine their individual needs and specific cycling goals beyond just having the loudest bike bell possible.
