The experienced bike mechanics at Rex Cycles tick off 16 tasks as they complete major tune-ups. After scrutinizing bikes for wear and tear, mechanics adjust components, tighten bolts, and check spoke tension, which usually skyrockets during construction season. Cables enjoy a thorough lube treatment, and wheels straighten under mechanics’ expert truing. Finally, mechanics wipe down revived cycles and hop on for a test ride, ensuring that all the gears, chains, and handlebar pompoms flow effortlessly for a smooth, pleasant ride.
In operation for almost four decades, The Bicycle Business expertly maintains pedal-powered rides with basic tune-ups for fixed-gear, touring, transportation, and road bikes. The shop’s skilled two-wheeler tradesmen adjust front and rear brakes, hubs, and derailleurs, ensuring bikes can stop on a dime and kick into high gear when you need to get to that silver dollar glistening off in the distance. Headsets and brackets receive a thorough tightening and adjustment to ensure smooth turning and efficient pedaling, before chains soak up squeak-stopping lubrication. Finally, the expert technicians true both wheels, inflate each tire, wipe down the bike, and take it on a test spin to ensure proper operation so after tune-ups a rust-riddled beater will ride as smoothly as a hoverboard.
At Mad Cat Bicycles, customers can maintain their muscle-powered two-wheelers, ensuring no malfunctions flare up as they cruise the skies with the power of telekinesis. Thanks to a skilled staff of spoke soothsayers and pedaling professionals, Mad Cat wraps squeaky and jittery cycles in a lubricating cocoon that nurtures the moving parts of pavement-traversing vessels. Each tune-up adjusts the brakes, derailleur, hubs, headset, bottom bracket, and afterburner rockets. Wheels are trued into wind-cutting straightness, and the drive train is cleaned and lubed to provide optimal pedal-propelled efficiency. Additionally, the bicycle is wiped down and undergoes a test ride to check for any kinks and clingy barnacles hampering a smooth ride.
The knowledgeable staff at Kinetic Cycles extends the lives of bicycles with full bike tune-ups and outfits riders with high-performance cycling apparel. Kinetic Cycles stocks its showroom with a full lineup of bike apparel and accessories. Instead of coating themselves in several sirloin steaks, bikers can add an extra layer of insulation with Specialized Therminal arm warmers ($35) and leg warmers ($40) or ready themselves for winter rides with a pair of wind- and waterproof Louis Garneau Super Prestige gloves ($44.99).
Bicycle Plus’s staff, a group of avid cyclists, brings an acute awareness to bike sales and tune-ups, garnering the store a series of awards for excellent bicycle retailing. Veteran mechanics work their magic on ailing frames throughout basic tune-ups and complete overhauls in the service department while finding time to teach curious DIYers how to fix a flat tire with peanut butter during free weekly bike-maintenance classes. The sales team pairs up shoppers with glossy rides from Trek, Specialized, and Colnago using the doctor-devised Body Geometry bike-fitting system to ensure maximum riding comfort.
Folsom Bike’s experienced bicycle technicians rehabilitate cycles and pair horseless riders with trusty two-wheeled rentals. During basic tune-ups, pedal physicians pamper asphalt steeds from headset to hub, remedying aches from popping wheelies with derailleur, brake, and bottom-bracket adjustments and ensuring optimal tire pressure and bolt safety. Creaky cables relax under soothing lubes, and newly trued wheels make for rides smoother than a piggyback from a manta ray. During performance tune-ups, gear gurus raise the velocipedal ante with fresh cables, housings, and frame polish before resurfacing brake pads, overhauling brackets, and weaving handlebar streamers into aerodynamic cornrows. Both basic and performance tune-ups are typically complete within 24 hours.
