Bike shops fix everything from rusty bike chains to frames bent by the hooves of vengeful, unemployed horses. Spruce up your mechanical steed with this Groupon.
$25 for $50 Worth of Bicycles, Gear, Rentals, and Tune-Ups
Cyclists gear up with accessories such as helmets ($45+), locks ($19.99+), and lights ($11.99+) or reward their bikes with a full tune-up ($90). Alternatively, rental steeds ($40/day) let customers re-create the days when San Francisco's population consisted of nothing but sentient bicycles and talking trolleys.
Whether meant to scale mountains or drift down street shoulders, the mounts and cycling gear at Summit Bicycles ease any odyssey atop two wheels. The extensive selection ranges from Trek bikes for road and mountain to hybrid and commuter bikes that trump getting to work by hiding overnight in a coworker's trunk. Well aware of the importance of finding the ideal frame, the store lends out high-end bikes for test runs via its demo program, allowing riders to get a feel for the saddle's political bent before taking it home to meet their parents. For current owners, Summit's technicians repair and tune up already-owned bikes and help browsers find accessories such as tire-patching kits, electronic heart-rate monitors, and apparel from Bontrager and Pearl Izumi.
