Like tin men, bikes require proper lubing and adjustment before weaving in and out of traffic on the yellow brick overpass. Muster the heart to ask the wizard for freshly trued rims with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a full bicycle tune-up (a $69.99 value) at Backdrop Sports in Everett.

The outdoor enthusiasts at Backdrop Sports overhaul hubs and lube parched chains to safely put pedalers back on a roll. In the full bike tune-up, a generous adjustment and lubrication of each bike's bottom bracket and crank set provide pedals access to a more thrilling frictionless playground than the oily monkey bars at Crisco Elementary. A precise wheel-truing treatment complements reworked hubs and holds a lie-detector test for untrustworthy rims, and tuned-up brakes do their part to help bikers stop on a dime and determine whether it is participating in the March of Dimes. A technician will additionally tweak front and rear derailleurs and scrub cables to ease gearshifts, and an adjusted headset steadies off-kilter handlebars.

This locally owned Backdrop Sports shop dons a new 2,000-square-foot retail storefront, lined with slat walls of products that color the brick-walled interior. An expansive corridor layout with industrial flooring sets the stage for abridged test rides through the helmet aisle.

Backdrop Sports

Within a 2,000-square-foot shop, Backdrop Sports maintains and sells equipment that can turn the area’s roads and backcountry into outdoor playgrounds. Ready to fix up rides that tackle snow, dirt, or asphalt, the crew of experienced technicians performs tune-ups that help to renew skis and snowboards and improve gear performance. Leaving no detail untouched, they tune skis and snowboards by hand, waxing and grinding bases before giving each board a much-needed hug. Paying similar attention to bicycles, mechanics tighten, adjust, and lubricate everything bikes need to operate smoothly on challenging trails. The staff also can build custom bikes, cut new splitboards, and help customers navigate the store's stock of men’s and women’s apparel, mountain bikes, and snowboards.

Customer Reviews

I was extremely impressed with Backdrop Sports and it's owner Andy. Andy gladly accepted the groupon and did some extra work that we discussed at the time I redeemed the coupon. He was very helpful and friendly. I definitely will go back to Backdrop Sports and advise friends to do so as well. I can't say enough good things about my experience, it was great!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Did a great job on my bike (new tires/tubes, fixed brakes and shifters), and quick turn-around time!
