Like the Tin Man, bikes need to be properly lubed, or they’ll break down on long journeys and be carried away by flying monkeys. Get carried away in a good way with today’s Groupon to Breakaway Bikes. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of bike accessories.
- For $50, you get $100 worth of bike services.
The staff at Breakaway Bikes retools rides and stocks high-end bike accessories from brands such as Brooks England, Crank Brothers, and Giro. Nocturnal two-wheelers can flit along streets safely when outfitted with red and white lights from Cat Eye ($34.99). A Genuine Innovations Ultraflate Plus ($19.99) fills tires quickly with compressed CO2, and a Kryptonite u-lock ($59.99) keeps bikes and rogue superheroes secure.
Staffers at Breakaway Bikes utilize Retül 3D motion-capture technology to fit cyclists to their bicycles, instead of mimicking motion by making bike-riding cartoon flipbooks. Bike-fitting services also integrate Fit Kit and LeMond Fitting Systems in the 30-minute basic fit ($75), which relies on a statistical database to predict riders’ ideal bike-frame size. Alternatively, maintenance services ($39.99–$149.99) adjust bike derailleurs, brakes, and tires, ensuring rides run smoothly and decreasing the risk of them throwing temper tantrums when approaching steep hills.
