Before wintertime hibernation, bicycles forage and fill their inner tubes with enough sustenance to feed training-wheeled cubs come spring, a noble act that often leads to serious exhaustion. Help spin the spokes of life with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a basic bicycle tune-up at Allendale Cycle (a $74.89 value, including tax) in Allendale.
The bicycle buffs at Allendale Cycle, an industry-certified service shop and velocipede vendor, have sold and spiffed cycles of all makes and models for 30 years. Reverse the results of rough riding and fruit-stand colliding by entrusting your two-wheeled steed to a certified mechanic for an afternoon of tuning and tidying. During the tune-up, adjustments are made to its brakes, hubs, front and rear derailleur, bottom bracket, and headset, and a thorough examination is conducted on all its nuts and bolts. Allendale’s attentive cycle caressers clean and lube the drivetrain, balance its wheels for steady riding, and inflate tires to an appropriate plumpness. Finally, a cycle shampoo leaves your bike as shiny as the day it crept fully formed from your closet and nuzzled you awake.
For three decades, industry-certified Allendale Cycle has filled its shop with a comprehensive arsenal of bike and skate gear, from brands such as Shimano and Vuelta. Backed by a full guarantee, the shop’s stock of BMX bikes and spare parts gleam alongside helmets, shoes, and clothes to outfit riders in gear more aerodynamic than NASA-designed confetti. Repair-shop staffers nurse cycles back to road-worthiness, not only tuning up mechanical maladies and replacing damaged parts but also washing frames to a sheen before returning two-wheeled charges to their owners.
