Without bicycles, paperboys could never outrun angry dogs and baseball cards could never perfect their motorcycle impersonations. Travel efficiently with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour bicycle tune-up from Cycle Logical in Homer (a $60 value). Click here for a list of maintenance performed during the tune-up.
The experienced mechanics at Cycle Logical keep the community’s bicycles healthy with expert 11-part tune-ups. Cycle docs begin the tune-up by scrubbing the hardworking peddles, cranks, and brackets of the drivetrain clean, and inspecting the mechanisms for wear. Mechanics then turn their attention to the frame and fork, which can be rigged for easy removal and used during impromptu fondue parties. Mechanics inflate tires and scrutinize, lube, and adjust hubs before tuning-up wheels and lubing cables, fasteners, and pivots. Tune-ups also adjust the placement or attitudes of headsets and bottom brackets, clean and lube chains, perfect breaks, de-grind gears, and check the torque on fasteners, saving bike riders from surprise transformations into unicycle riders. Finally, mechanics test-ride bikes to make sure they leaves in road-ready condition.
