After stretches of inactivity, a bicycle needs a tune-up to get back into optimal street shape and to reassure it that an overenthusiastic pogo stick hasn’t taken its place. Revamp a bike’s parts and spirits with this Groupon.
$39 for Basic Bicycle Tune-Up ($80 Value)
Cycle-minded staff recalibrates run-down bike parts with adjustments of the head set, bottom bracket, front and rear hubs and brakes, and both sets of derailleurs. Before riders jump back on the saddle, the wheels receive a basic true, the chain gets lubed for smooth movement, and tires receive the proper allotment of air.
