What You'll Get
A deserted bike can fall victim to the elements, which wreak havoc on the vehicle's many essential gears, bolts, and propulsion-enhancing baseball cards. Prevent unnecessary expenditure with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a basic bike tune-up (a $69 value) at Caster's Bicycles and Fitness, at either of its locations in Providence or Warwick.
The Caster family's bike centers have been treating two-wheelers since 1919, and recently received Best of Rhode Island honors from the editors of Rhode Island Monthly. The shop's basic tune-up begins with a safety check and frame wipe-down followed by an inspection designed to determine vintage and appellation. Experts skilled in two-wheelism then adjust bearings, tinker with wheel tension, inspect and lube the drive train, and align the brakes to enable unfettered pumping power.
Because this ride-enhancing service is both precise and all-encompassing, the mechanics often invite bikes to stay at the shop for multiple days at a time. Fortunately, distance makes the bike owner grow fonder of cycling long distances.
