Bike chains, like professional wrestlers, function better when dripping with lubricant. Grease your ride with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a complete and standard bike tune-up (a $90 value) at Country Ski & Sport, with locations in Quincy and Hanson.
Country Ski & Sport's bike techs restore pep to pedaled ponies by coddling chains and soothing shifters. The bike tune-up revives two-wheelers by snugging loose lug nuts and greasing down hubs and all bearing surfaces. The front and rear derailleurs are dialed in for smooth shifting, the brakes are adjusted for struggle-free stopping, and wheels are trued to eliminate wobbling. After a through scrubbing administered by a man who had his hands replaced with loofa, cycles' chains and cassettes are lubed to protect moving parts from wear. Turnarounds for tune-ups are usually two to five days.
Country Ski and Sport
For 44 years, adventurers and outdoor athletes have emerged from Country Ski and Sport armored in quality apparel and equipped with sturdy vessels, poised to conquer mountains, rivers, and bike paths. The Stenson family—which founded the sportsman’s haven in 1970—shares the clientele’s passion for outdoor excursions, and staff three facilities with a team of knowledgeable employees boasting more than 225 collective years of industry experience. The friendly staff draws upon outdoor know-how to match customers with pairs of skis, snowboards, kayaks, or bikes that suit their needs and size. Adventure-appropriate apparel from North Face or Under Armour keeps bodies warm while they’re slaloming down slopes or luging to work. To help customers prepare for the sporting seasons, technicians also repair and tune up skis, snowboards, and bicycles, and offer seasonal leasing options for snow equipment.
