Like the Tin Man, bikes need to be properly lubed or they’ll break down on long journeys and be carried away by flying monkeys. Make sure you can keep biking the yellow brick road with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a supreme bike tune-up at Cycles West (a $78.39 value).
Cycles West owner and technician Simon Ciceri applies 30 years of bicycle experience to adjusting brakes, fitting saddles, fixing frames, and doling out tips for the proper care of trusty two-wheeled friends. The bike overhaul includes a thorough scrubbing, with the chain, cogs, crank, and gravy coating removed for access to all nooks and crannies, providing for a full frame detailing. Ciceri trues unaligned wheels horizontally and laterally, taking care to inspect frames and straighten derailleurs to ensure precision steering before full reassembly and lubrication. Finally, all nuts and bolts undergo an inspection so that bikes can safely sail across concrete and smoothly execute tricks such as wheelie popping and playing dead. Cycles West opens its doors every day of the week except Sunday.
