As spring spreads like spilled gravy over the land, hibernating bicycles slowly awaken and emerge from the undergrowth, shy and stiff with sleep. Help your own bicycle bosom buddy rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of merchandise and services at Biketek.
Biketek keeps pedal-propelled vehicles moving with an array of maintenance services and supplies cyclists with accessories for body and bike from brands including Serfas, Pearl Izumi, and Terry. Entrust treasured velocipedes to one of Biketek's dedicated mechanics for a tune-up, readying brakes and gears for a summer of cruising inner-city streets and escaping outer-city stampedes ($69). Women can simultaneously indulge their legs in two fashionable styles with Terry cycling skorts ($60–$80), and everyone enjoys the cool comfort of a Pittsburgh city jersey ($75). Shield delicate eyes with the sturdy protection of Optic Nerve sunglasses, customizable to match any outfit with interchangeable lenses ($59+), or protect noggins and the knowledge of Golden Girls episodes they contain with a choice of helmet ($35+).
Biketek welcomes all cyclists for supplies, repairs, and tune-ups, whether they ride recreationally or compete in triathlons. In addition to road, triathlon, mountain, single-speed, and hybrid bikes from Felt, Jamis, and Raleigh, the shop stocks a sizeable collection of gear from Giro, Sidi, Topeak, and Shimano. GU and Hammer Nutrition products, meanwhile, give riders the power necessary to win races and corral herds of stampeding tricycles. For six months after they purchase a new bicycle, buyers can come back to the shop for free maintenance and fit adjustments.
On the upkeep side of Biketek’s coin, technicians repair and maintain rides with tune-ups, part installations, and other services. They also fit bikes to riders with Body Scanning CRM technology, which uses software and noninvasive laser-pointer body measurements to determine the ideal saddle height, angle, and fore-aft position, as well as handlebar height and rotation. Although everyone can purchase a fitting session, Biketek offers one free to anyone buying a new road, triathlon, or cyclocross bike.
