With more than two decades of experience stored in their collective toolbox, the knowledgeable staff at 21st Avenue Bicycles offers an array of bike-nurturing services with quick turn-around times. Each basic tune-up begins with a general safety check, wherein technicians confirm that bikes are operating properly and have not been running with scissors. Next, mechanics lubricate chains, check fasteners, and make minor shift and brake adjustments before wiping down the entire frame. Specialists tweak two-wheelers seven days a week, and in addition to pampering velocipedes, 21st Avenue Bicycles hosts events and crafts short videos, which can be viewed online or through a tricycle-powered projector. Groupon customers will also receive an additional 15% off any applicable parts purchased at time of tune-up.
Though 21st Avenue Bicycles sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
21st Avenue Bicycles
21st Avenue Bicycles' knowledgeable staff oversees an inventory of handsome, speedy bikes hand-built with parts from manufacturers such as Raleigh, Dolce, and Vittoria Randonneur. The charming, simple brick-walled shop bustles with activity as mechanics build new wheels with a Phil Wood spoke cutter, show customers through the wooden racks of brand-new rides, and carry out full-service repair overhauls. As they true wheels, fix flats, adjust brakes, and remove hibernating snakes from handlebars, the friendly technicians exude an infectious joy as they work, promoting a workplace atmosphere in which high-fives are liberally doled out and popping wheelies is actively encouraged.
