Like the polar ice caps, bicycle gears flow better in warmer months. Temper your two-wheeler with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a complete bike tune-up at Bike Connection in Schaumburg (a $65 value).
For nearly four decades, the skilled staff at Bike Connection has extended the lives of all makes and models of bicycles with precision tune-ups and maintenance services. Revive your velocipede from its wintry retirement with a standard tune-up, which tightens brakes and adjusts gears, headsets, and brackets to facilitate mobility on tight turns through library bookshelves. The meticulous technicians tension and true your cycle's wheels to ward off wobbling and lube the drive chain to foster fluid motion. Bicycles gleam after the Bike Connection staff wipes grime from the body, chain, and rims, restoring the former metallic sheen and eliciting envious glares from lackluster penny farthings.
Bike Connection's mechanics keep two-wheelers in road-ready shape in addition to maintaining a broad inventory of cycles, parts, and accessories. The shop stocks fully built bikes from brands such as Specialized, Giant, Haro, Kink, SE, and Fuji plus an abundant supply of wearables such as Giro and Bell helmets and Pearl Izumi gear for men and women. And in the service department, technicians tune up and clean up parts ranging from tires and brakes to headsets and clipped-on baseball cards with numerous, tiered maintenance packages.
