Bikes are eco-friendly and fun, unlike coal trains, which are powered entirely by Christmastime disappointment. Hop on with this Groupon.
- $32 for a bike tune-up (a $65 value)
Trained mechanics perform checkups, which test and fine-tune every aspect of the bike’s mechanics. Technicians true wheels and adjust brakes, derailleurs, and bearing systems. They also wipe down drivetrains and lubricate them for smooth riding before cleaning each bike’s frame and wheels. This Groupon does not cover the cost of any new parts needed or their installation.
While everyone knows that a custom suit will fit better and last longer than something off the rack, not many people apply this logic to their bicycles. Bike Zone is working to correct this view by eschewing one-size-fits-all bikes in favor of cycles that are each built to its rider’s body type and intended usage. Staff begin by measuring clients for the correct frame and then adjust the seat and handlebars until each component is as comfortable and easy to control as possible. Clients can also test ride and compare any of the shop’s Raleigh, Trek, and Felt models, each of which has been expertly assembled by an in-store mechanic instead of by North Pole elves.
Bike Zone also specializes in repairs for all brands of bikes, and mechanics can be found manning six separate repair stations any time of day. Each new bicycle bought in the store comes with a free tune-up, and the shop also accepts trade-ins for bike-shop-quality bikes that are in good working order.
