As spring spreads like spilled gravy over the land, hibernating bicycles slowly awaken and emerge from the undergrowth, shy and stiff with sleep. Help your own bicycle bosom-buddy rise and shine with today's Groupon at Cycler's Cafe. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a professional bike tune-up (a $60 value).
- For $5, you get $10 worth of café fare and drinks.
Locally owned and operated, Cycler's Cafe offers top-of-the-line cycling equipment and gear, complemented by professional bicycle servicing and a café serving fuel for wheel-based endeavors. Before administering a tune-up, the experienced cycling mechanic will start with an inspection of the bike's brake pads, brake and shifting cables, tires and rims, and chain for any splitting, rusting, or incriminating fingerprints from Italian poster-hangers.
The tune-up itself consists of a full cleaning, brake adjustment with a hydraulic brake bleed (if applicable), an off-bike wheel true performed on a truing stand, a front and rear derailleur adjustment to smooth gear shifting, and a full drivetrain cleaning. To ensure your ride runs smoother than a lounge singer in a buttered bobsled, a complete re-lube, safety check, and manufacturer-specific bolt tightening will also be administered to your newly sparkling spoke-model. Finally, before approving each peddling machine for a return to the road-based arena, the technicians will conclude with an inspection of the cassette, chain rings, frame, and all additional components for any signs of excessive wear or failure. The tune-up price does not include any parts recommended for replacement, but the staff will inform you of any needed repairs before tweaking your vexed velocipede.
To keep Louisville's bikers performing at their wheelie-popping peak, Cycler's Cafe also offers a wide variety of fare and drink options. Mexican-inspired dishes such as the pork burrito ($7.99) or the grilled chicken nachos ($7.99) provide meaty mouthfuls of proteinous peddling power, and fresh deli sandwiches ($6.50 with a pickle) are served daily until 6 p.m. Caffeinated drinks such as regular coffee ($1.35) or a FRS energy drink ($2.85) provide much-needed perkiness for hitting the pavement.
