ModSquad Cycles’ experienced staff of benevolent bicycle blacksmiths protects pedal pods of all makes, models, and literary tastes from out-of-tune configuration conundrums. Submit your foot-powered two wheeler to the tender hands of a knowledgeable technician for a full bicycle tune-up, and rest assured that your cycle will be returned more in-tune than a Celine Dion bicycle horn. The full tune-up and truing rejuvenates bikes that haven’t been to the chiropractor by adjusting brakes, bearings, and shifters.

Having accrued 15 years of teaching experience, the staff members at Tennis Innovators prioritize exciting instruction and curriculums over barraging students with volley after volley. They appreciate the challenge of holding a child's interest and create fun drills for junior pupils, who can begin to learn racket-swinging techniques as early as age 3. The QuickStart and JuniorExtreme programs act as intriguing introductions to the sport for adolescents and work on improving their coordination, mobility, and athleticism, both on and off the court. In fact, they don't require a court to host their afterschool programs and will adapt lessons to fit any suitable space, such as a gymnasium or the least occupied patch of an in-use baseball diamond.
Classes aren't just for children—the staff hosts adult sessions aimed at improving overall game play and fitness in a supportive environment for fully formed humans of all skill levels. Staffers also lend their management expertise to neighborhood tennis clubs, providing guidance for hiring and training processes, court maintenance, and marketing.
