Like a centipede or the judicial system, a bicycle relies on the synchronicity of its many parts. Give your skittering steed a checkup with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a comp bicycle tune-up at Mike's Bikes (an $85 value). This Groupon is valid at locations in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Berkeley, Sausalito, Sacramento, San Rafael, Los Gatos, Petaluma, and Walnut Creek.

The expert cyclists at Mike's Bikes rescue riders from conundrums caused by out-of-tune bicycles. With a 12-point comp tune-up, ailing rides receive the attention they need to pedal at maximum efficiency and haphazardly chase passing cars. The technician inspects the frame, fork, and components to ensure they are all in good working order and not replacements made out of PVC pipe, before tightening the crank bolts, chainring bolts, and pedals. A wheel truing keeps trusty rims riding on the straight and narrow, and brake and derailleur adjustments enable effortless stopping and shifting. Cables and housing receive a complete lubrication, followed by a final tighten and check to ensure the bike is ready to roll and has the correct number of wheels.

Though not included in today’s Groupon, Mike's Bikes also offers more comprehensive tuning services and a vast selection of bicycles, parts, and apparel.



Reviews

they modified bikes to give me options and watched me ride some more. I could tell they cared about getting me on a bike that would contribute to my love for the sport.

All I can say is, they're logging a LOT of good karma. Next time I need anything, I'm going to Mike's first.
