Unlike its cousin, shaved ice, snow can cause damage to property and only comes in one lacklustre flavour: grape. Address the wear and tear with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a snowboard or ski tune-up at Bike Universe.
Bike Universe’s experienced technicians clean and condition snowboards and skis for snow-skimming gear ready to hit the powder. Skis and boards receive a makeover that fills in surface gaps, grinds surfaces flat for level gliding, and sharpens edges for improved control and more secure landings on triple lutzes. A waxing adds a protective coating and fosters faster rides. When returning tuned-up gear to its owners, the knowledgeable staff can answer questions or offer tips for safe slope-wrangling.
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.
