The top three most efficient modes of human-powered transportation are (in no particular order): Flintstone cars, bicycles, and a palanquin carried by the various monarchs you've conquered and overthrown. Make sure the most feasible of these is in perfect working order with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a bicycle tune-up at Bicycle South Windsor LLC (up to a $64.99 value).
Under the tutelage of owner Peter Di Pietro, an accomplished racer and 12-year veteran of USA Cycling, the cycle-friendly technicians at Bicycle South Windsor LLC tweak and adjust bikes of all conditions. During each tune-up, which takes between two and five hours, a tech de-greases gears and cleans off dirt, film, and race challenges scrawled by rollerbladers. After re-lubricating and polishing the parts, the techs straighten, adjust, tighten, and align all components and true the wheels to give the bike an even gait and confident stride. Once the two-wheeler has been tweaked and tuned up, techs perform an inspection to note any problem spots before sending bikers pedaling away with the confidence of a one-year guarantee against their bike performing poorly or getting into spats with unicycles.
Though Bicycle South Windsor LLC sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
