The Fine Print

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. Protect your steely companion with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a complete bicycle overhaul at Chain Reaction Bike Shop (an $80 value).

Chain Reaction Bike Shop's bicycle buffs mend wounded cycles with repair services that range from minor adjustments to extensive tune-ups. During a 60-minute overhaul, bike pros install two new inner tubes in tires, rejuvenating wheels battered by rough terrain and bumpy Lego highways. To improve longevity and aerodynamics, techs scrub each part of the bicycle, including cables, chains, and automatic sunroofs. T staff in the recently renovated shop can also perform safety inspections and accessory installation at no added cost. Expert mechanics identify worn-out components and typically complete two-wheeler renovations within the same day.

Chain Reaction Bike Shop

Spokes have populated the space around 1630 West University Avenue for 65 years, turning stoically as numerous bike shops have come and gone. The spot’s newest cycling incarnation, Chain Reaction Bike Shop, owes its staying power to owner Raleigh Faust and his staff of experts who cater to collegiate commuters, recreational cyclists, and serious athletes alike. Inside the unvarnished wooden storefront, rows of rides from Scott, Jamis Bicycles, and Surly await ownership. Every bike purchased at the shop comes with a lifetime of free service adjustments, making owning a bike as hassle-free as combing a hairless cat. Technicians see to these new rides, taking more than a dozen measurements for individualized fittingsand performing maintenance services that range from spot repairs to comprehensive tune-ups.
