Before wintertime hibernation, bicycles forage and fill their inner tubes with enough sustenance to feed training-wheeled cubs come spring, a noble act that often leads to serious exhaustion. Keep wheels rolling through all seasons with today’s Groupon: for $33, you get a bike tune-up at Bikes On Wheels (a $67.80 value). This Groupon is valid at both Bikes on Wheels’ Toronto locations, on Augusta Avenue and Queen Street West.
Named one of the best bike stores in toronto by blogTO and best bicycle store by NOW, Bikes On Wheels continues to earn accolades by providing top-notch cycling services. The shop’s velocipede-whisperers begin the tune-up with a thorough cable and drive-chain cleaning and lubing. Surgical adjustments are made to the tension of the brakes, ensuring riders can stop on a dime, pick it up, and buy a Chiclet without ever dismounting. Derailleurs are inspected and rebuffed to transform sticky gears into smooth shifters. Wobbly wheels undergo a minor truing process and inflation to increase pedal-pumping efficiency and ease momentum retention, and the bearing systems such as hubs, bottom bracket, headset, and star-plotting for warp-speed mode receive adjustments. After the oscillator’s overhaul, patrons can get back to the asphalt jungle’s convenient bike lanes, assured of a well-maintained machine.
