Unlike shark teeth and perpetual-motion machines, the average bicycle needs regular maintenance to function at its best. Travel on a well-tuned two-wheeler with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a bicycle tune-up (a $95 value) or for $95, you get an ultimate bicycle overhaul (a $285 value) at Conte's Bicycle and Fitness Equipment in Virginia Beach.
Family owned and operated since 1957, Conte's Bicycle and Fitness Equipment approaches each bicycle with individualized care and expertise. Conte's tune-up can refresh your bike's groggy parts after protracted garage hibernation. After light adjustment, brakes once again meet evenly on each rim and derailleurs front and rear keep riders seamlessly cycling up and down hills with ease. If your wheels have been wobbling towards a dishonest path, Conte's trues both front and rear wheels before giving them a stern lecture. The ultimate bicycle overhaul cleans, de-greases, re-greases, and re-calibrates every system of your dual-wheeled chariot. Skilled mechanics go where few rags have gone before to overhaul crunchy bottom brackets, headsets, and hubs, and scrub every crevice of the dirt-loving drive train. A waxed and polished frame, with all spotless and well-oiled parts attached to it, returns to you prepared to glide forth effortlessly on asphalt or trail, deftly dodge its pothole and fallen log foes, and strut in shiny, sustainable glory next to less-kempt automobiles.
