Like the Tin Man, bikes need to be properly lubed, or they’ll break down on long journeys and be carried away by flying monkeys. Cruise down any color of road with today's Groupon to Revolution Bike Shop in Solana Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a bicycle tune-up (a $60 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of bikes and accessories.
The cycle specialists of Revolution Bike Shop cater to novice pedal pushers and serious spokesmen alike with a broad stock of bikes, gear, components, and repair services. Spoke doctors rejuvenate ailing two-wheelers with a basic tune-up that includes checking brakes to ensure full stops on demand. Front and back derailleur adjustments optimize gear shifting, and wheel truing aligns tires while tuning spokes for balanced tension and ukulele-strumming musicality. For an additional $60, customers can upgrade to a more involved tune-up that includes a drive-train cleaning with full wipe-down of the frame.
Like feline personalities, the bicycles at Revolution range from feisty road racers to European-inspired Linus Roadster Classic cruisers ($429). Among accessories, aerodynamic helmets ($95–$225) mind imperiled gray matter, and saddle bags ($19–$48) give coin collections a more convenient holding place than mouths.
