Before wintertime hibernation, bicycles forage and fill their inner tubes with enough sustenance to feed training-wheeled cubs come spring—a noble act that often leads to serious exhaustion. Tune up weathered pedal pushers with today’s Groupon to Greenstreet Cycles. Choose between the following options:
- For $27, you get a winter-prep bike tune-up (a $55 value).
- For $30, you get $60 toward services, merchandise, accessories, and bikes.
The pedaling pros at Greenstreet Cycles help visitors maintain their thigh-toning green-mobiles with comprehensive bike tune-ups, services, and gear from name brands. During the basic winter tune-up an experienced cabal of frame tamers preps bi-wheeled steeds for harsh weather conditions including snow and nuclear winter. Brakes, shifters, and derailleurs undergo adjustments before bicycle whisperers cultivate smooth excursions by lubricating the chain, cables, and derailleurs. To finish, drivetrain and security inspections render bikes happy, ensuring they’ll never buck riders at an inopportune moment or whine at the prospect of being locked to a pole.
For purchasers of today’s second option, Greenstreet’s team employs dexterity and steady-handed wrench wielding to soothe bikes with additional repairs, such as flat-tire fixes ($8/tire per tube), rack or fender installation ($15), and wheel builds ($60). Cyclists can also deck out their bikes and bodies with custom frames, gear, apparel, and merchandise from reputable brands such as Specialized, Masi, Swrve, and Bern.
Even in the cold, blue stillness of a winter morning, the bike techs at Greenstreet Cycles can be seen locking up their cycles before opening shop for the day. Leading by example, they advocate eco-friendly commuting throughout the year and work to keep their customers' rides in shape for such endeavors by performing basic adjustments, seasonal tune-ups, and complete overhauls. The Greenstreet Cycles team also recycles old parts by donating to the Community Bike Project—an organization dedicated to equipping community members with bikes and knowledge on how to keep those bikes in tip-top condition and riding in straight lines as opposed to continuous circles.
