Before the advent of professional bicycle tune-ups, gangs of riders often raided travelling carnivals for small wrenches and hand balloon pumps. Maintain your wheels without collateral clown damage with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a full bicycle tune-up (a $50 value) at Bike Universe on Broadway Avenue.
Bike Universe is a full-service repair shop and purveyor of high-performance outdoor sports equipment. A bicycle's first tune-up refurbishes rides with adjustment of brakes, gears, hubs, wheel alignment, bottom bracket, and headset. The service also lubricates two-wheeled companions and injects life-giving air into tired tires, granting rides the confidence to stand up to the bullying of pavement.
At Bike Universe, a team of cycle specialists works to keep the community's bike traffic rolling smoothly by stocking new equipment and upgrading old rides. Their handiwork helped earn the shop a ranking among Saskatoon's best bicycle stores in Planet S's Best of 2010. As active outdoorspeople themselves, staff members personally test and carry high-performance outdoor sports equipment including kayaks, slacklines, longboards, and apparel, preventing athletes from having to borrow their elder siblings' old-timey swimming singlets.
