What You'll Get
If the dune buggy and the sewing wheel hadn't enjoyed that fateful tryst so many years ago, the bicycle might never have been born. Honor the proud parents of pedal-powered progress with today's deal: for $49, you get a basic bicycle tune-up (up to a $112.50 value) from Bike Fitters in Ponte Vedra Beach. Your Groupon is valid for a basic tune-up for a derailleur bike ($112.50) or a chain-brake, three-speeder, or BMX bike ($75).
Escape impending donkey invasions by taking your cobwebbed bicycle out of its dusty nook and bringing it in to Bike Fitters. The bike geniuses know how to make a rust-riddled beater ride as smoothly as a hoverboard, and today's Groupon will get you a full basic bike tune-up. Bike Fitters' skilled mechanics inspect the bike from top to bottom, taking care to note any signs of wear or nests of raccoons. Wheels are adjusted, tire inflation perfected, sticky bits lubed, and brakes primed to optimum efficacy. Following the wheedling, the mechanics also perform a test ride, ensuring optimum safety during the course of all motorless, thigh-powered exploration. Whether you purchased your bike from Bike Fitters or not, they know how to make it a well-oiled, land-cruising machine that will never burst into flames for no reason. See here for Bike Fitters' extensive bike tune-up checklist.
In this age of unspeakably large, fuel-guzzling rocket cars, driving often requires the gas budget of an oil tycoon, while finding parking calls for the Dark Orb of Shu'ggurath. Avoid the hassle altogether with help from a velocipede. Occasional tune-ups are infinitely affordable in comparison to the pitfalls of car maintenance, and the health benefits of svelte thighs and an improved heart rate cannot be beat by glittering spoilers, two-tone chrome rooftops, or the presence of Vin Diesel.
SlowTwitchers give Bike Fitters high marks for inventory, knowledge, and customer service.
