The top three most efficient modes of human-powered transportation are (in no particular order): Flintstone cars, bicycles, a palanquin carried by the various monarchs you've conquered and overthrown. Make sure the most feasible of these is in perfect working order with today's deal: for $45, you get a pro tune-up from Concept Cyclery, located on East Dunne Avenue (a $90 value).
Concept Cyclery originated in a Silicon Valley entrepreneur's humble dream of a bike shop that allows novices and experts to efficiently shop in a domain tailored to their needs. The pros at Concept will adjust your bicycle's brakes, derailleurs, hubs, headset, and bottom bracket, all the while resisting the urge to accidentally misplace the Mickey Mantle rookie card callously tucked away in your spoke. For a linear ride, front and rear wheels will be trued and rear derailleur, chains, and cassete will be removed and cleaned. The hawk eyes of Concept Cyclery's wheel wizards will assess wear and tear and determine if any replacements are necessary. For a fresh and clean first ride post-tweaking, your handsome velocipede will be thoroughly wiped down and festooned with a blue ribbon for Best in Show.
Yelpers give Concept Cyclery a 3.5 star average:
- Awesome service. The owner, his wife, and staff all made me feel like I could take my time. They all really took the time to help me find the right product. Haven't felt that sort of personal service in a long time. I would highly recommend. – David P., Yelp
- These guys and gals are great! I was new to the sport (mountain biking) and they helped me find the right bike... and were truely honest throughout the whole process. – Justin S., Yelp
