Much like horses, bicycles are used to transport people over long distances, and sound like a motorcycle if you feed them baseball cards. Care for your saddle-less steed with today’s Groupon: for $40 you get a bicycle tune-up, plus a $15 gift card at Cycle Center, redeemable at both the Five Points and Spring Valley locations (up to an $80 value).
Cycle Center plies peddlers with a plethora of precision bikes, accessories, and performance-enhancing services performed by a staff of mechanics certified in all makes and models. Help tone-deaf two-wheelers reach high road notes with a standard tune-up (up to a $65 value). Velocipede veterinarians perform safety adjustments on all bolts, in addition to fixing unbalanced gears, breaks, headsets, wheel hubs, and brackets shaken loose by potholes and cracked asphalt. Technicians scour each link for imperfections with a full chain inspection, before sending that inspection to seven of their mechanic friends. Tune-ups end with a full wipe down to leave your chain chariot clean enough to stun unsuspecting passersby. Ten-speed easy riders can use the $15 gift card on any of the Center’s wide array of cycling accessories, ranging from safety gear to baggy bicycle shorts for modest mountain bikers.
The mechanics at Cycle Center outfit bike enthusiasts with custom equipment fittings, expert tune-ups, and a rolling stock of more than 500 bicycles dispersed between the company's two locations. In the interest of both safety and performance, the team makes sure all bikes are carefully assembled and tuned up before the rubber meets the road. They also stock an impressive lineup of apparel and gear, from air pumps that keep tires aptly inflated to helmets that keep heads more protected than a presidential motorcade covered in mosquito netting. In-stock brands include Fuji, Cannondale, and Dahon, a manufacturer renowned for its revolutionary folding bikes.
