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. Cruise down the yellow brick road with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a bike tune-up at DJ’s Bike Doctor (a $60 value).
Rickety two-wheelers are resuscitated into pristine, road-ready cycles thanks to the proficient bike medics at DJ’s Bike Doctor. With up to 30 years each of pedaling prowess, skilled mechanics tenderly cosset all types of bikes, meticulously tightening, oiling, and tweaking nuts and bolts before ridding gears and brakes of any squeaks, creaks, and relentless bike-horn blares. Wobbly wheels undergo a light truing, aligning oblong spokes and spinners into their proper orientation before adorning them with lavender-scented baseball cards. Tune-ups can take up to one or two days, and newly refurbished cycles hit the road sporting a warrantee of 30 riding days.
