Bicycles are a more environmentally friendly means of transportation than cars, SUVs, and coal-burning Hoverounds combined. Keep your Kyoto Protocol–approved cruiser in top repair with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a bicycle tune-up at 918XC Bicycles (a $60 value).
The team of seasoned cycle and service veterans at 918XC tune up all makes and models of bikes, rendering them pitch perfect and dissonance-free. The medley of maintenance begins with an all-over inspection and tightening of liberated parts, followed by brakes, shifting system, headset, and bottom bracket adjustment. Two-wheeled pedal ponies get their front and hind hubs trued, and the chain and cables receive a thorough oiling to slick away metallic tension. Opting for safety over hilarity, mechanics forgo helium and refill tires with regular air. Chassis-coddling clients can peruse the Brookside showroom pre- or post-tune-up, browsing bikes, parts, and accessories sleekly stacked from floor to ceiling. The shop requires appointments for all tune-ups, so call or email ahead.
