For cyclists, being "off the chain" doesn't involve gold parachute pants and a fresh Scooby walk, but instead means a frantically pedaled face-plant. Today's Groupon gets bikes in top dance-competition form. For $39, you get a Phat Daddy tune-up from Crank Daddy's Bicycle Works, an $80 value. A CityVoter choice for Top Five Bike Shop for three straight years, Crank Daddy's boasts a staff of knowledgeable and experienced cyclists who will breathe fresh, mechanical life into the spokes and frame of any rogue two-wheeler.
Crank Daddy's garnered a Top 100 Retailer ranking in 2009 from Bicycle Retailer and Industry News for its deep understanding of the bicycle anatomy. The store reserves 4,000 square feet of space to doctor bikes with the expert hands of a mechanic with years of cycle know-how. The Phat Daddy tune-up treatment gives a bike a thorough makeover that reaches from your brakes all the way into the bottom bracket, your bike's metaphorical and literal brain. For a full list of the services included, see the list to the right.
A pre-spring tune-up allows your bike to ride as smoothly and with as much road-tearing confidence as it can muster. Instill gumption where training wheels used to be and feel the rush of spring air as you once again pedal boldly past traffic, under clotheslines, and across the deep blue surface of local rivers and their tributaries.
