Bicycles, like puppies, love rolling around outside, freak out over every twig in the park, and track mud all over your bed when trying to cuddle. Keep your two-wheeled best friend in fine fettle with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get one standard bicycle tune-up at Bike Factory of Charlottesville (up to an $80 value).
Specializing in one-day service and with 15 years in operation, Bike Factory of Charlottesville takes disused bicycles out of winter hibernation and brings them back up to blacktop-surfing condition. Head sets, bottom brackets, brakes, and gears undergo adjustment to keep stop signs respected, legs pedaling with appropriate effort, and cranks torqued as necessary. Proper tire pressure emboldens flabby inner tubes, and the entire spoked mechanism gets wiped down to remove any remaining grime or nesting anvils. After a final check to ensure everything is in working order, aluminum horses are reunited with proud cyclists and released back into their curbed jungles.
