Biking is the most efficient way to travel from location to location without a series of well-placed trampolines or full control over a vestigial tail. Ensure smooth two-wheeled travels with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a bicycle tune-up at Kozy's Cyclery (a $69.99 value). This Groupon is valid at the Northwest, South Loop, Near North, and North Side locations.
One of Chicagoland's largest bike shops, Kozy's Cyclery has groomed and treated fuel-free instruments of travel since 1944. Over the course of a detailed bicycle tune-up, skilled technicians adjust the brakes, hubs, and cranks for smooth pedaling and lubricate the derailleurs with careful application of grease and bribes. The mechanics also tighten the nuts and bolts, check for proper pressure, and give the bike a wipe-down, and a truing session sets the bike's wheel-geometry straight. A thorough safety inspection ensures that the cycle will sail smoothly over dirt or concrete paths and won't shake loose over potholes or during Chubbie Checker concerts.
Originating as a bicycle-repair shop on Chicago's South Side in 1944, Kozy's Cyclery now consists of four store locations across Chicago, helping make it the city's premier bike store for the past 60-plus years. Along with a complete stock of bicycle clothing, accessories, parts—and, of course, bikes—the three-generation, family-owned store cares for its bicycle-riding customers by offering professional bike fittings, test rides, and two free tune-ups with every new bicycle purchase. Kozy's sells more than 250 bikes for each rider's unique needs, from mountain bikes and cruisers to fixed gears and multispeed commuter bikes to electric bikes.
