Bicycles harness the foot power otherwise wasted on treading water, stomping grapes, and leaping over bicycles. Celebrate the pinnacle of biped progress with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a bike tune-up at Cycle Bicycle Shop in the South Loop (a $65 value).
The knowledgeable mechanics at Cycle Bicycle Shop rehabilitate spokey two-wheelers for peak performance. Their tune-up service makes amends for the travel travails of the winter months suffered due to potholes, salt crust, and ice ramps. At Cycle Bicycle Shop, rim resuscitators begin repairs by lubing cables and adjusting and tightening the brakes, hubs, and wheels, which keeps bikes polished and balanced. This Groupon also covers the labor costs for any adjustments, but not the cost of parts that may need to be replaced upon inspection (cable replacement typically costs $3, and tire replacement runs $5 to $6). In one to two days, bikes will be reunited with their owners, primed to attract the envy of stationary bikers and unicycle messengers.
Cycle Bike Shop
Apart from selling bikes and the gear to go with them, Cycle Bike Shop’s savvy technicians cull parts and accessories from their shelves to heal and enhance cycles. They expertly steer patrons through a smorgasbord of two-wheelers, helmets, and gloves from brands such as Biria USA, Jamis, and KHS. During tune-ups, employees tweak brakes, hubs, and wheels before lubing cables to guarantee commutes are smoother and safer than a traffic cone sculpted from marshmallows.
