What You'll Get
Much like robots, children, and robotic children, bikes need to be regularly recalibrated to keep them from developing human emotions. Keep your bike performing at its functional, unfeeling best with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an 18-point inspection bike tune-up at DBC City Bike Design (a $75 value).
The experienced mechanics at DBC City Bike Design iron out bicycles' mechanical kinks with their thorough maintenance services. Throughout the 18-point inspection tune-up, talented technicians examine bicycles inch by inch, checking for general wear as well as more elusive ailments such as cracks in the frame, structural damage, or a shattered psyche. Components including the breaks, the derailleurs, and the cables are adjusted for optimal performance, and the drivetrain is wiped clean of grit and given a fresh dollop of lubricant. To ensure that bikes stay the course while traversing dicey terrain, wheel wobbles are eliminated and tire pressure is topped off. The bike receives a post-service wipe-down to divest it of any grease smudges before being cleanly sent on its way with a new lease on life that's guaranteed for 90 days.

About DBC City Bike Design
Years before Dan and Maria founded DBC City Bike design, the duo resolved to reduce their dependence on gasoline. This resolution led the couple to Europe, where they hopped aboard Dutch bicycles that redefined how they thought about comfort on two-wheeled mounts. When Dan and Maria returned stateside, they began importing and selling these revolutionary rides through their new store, The Dutch Bicycle Company (The DBC). However, the hills, long-distance commutes, and stairs that define many American cities revealed many inconveniences in the unmodified Dutch model, so DBC added City Bike design to its name and they began building their custom Swifts, calibrated to handle the rigors of urban, bike-riding lifestyles. Today, the founding couple and their design staff build these bikes to order, modify existing rides, and provide tune-ups that, like prison-gang relay races, keep chains moving smoothly and swiftly.
