Dutch Bike Co. Seattle, featured in the New York Times for its unique collection of imported European cycles, hosts a team of savvy mechanics that restore all types of bicycles to fine fettle. Visitors haul in their ailing cruisers and dirt-caked mountain bikes for tune-up services that ensure velocipedes a speedy recovery from long jaunts and crashes through Precious Moments figurine displays. The standard tune-up returns shabby two-wheeled companions to proper working order by adjusting shifts and brakes, greasing chains, and straightening wheels. Alternatively, the comprehensive tune-up includes everything in the standard tune-up and adds an extra adjustment of the hubs, headset, and high-volume bugle horn. Before departing, all vehicles relish a ceremonial wipedown while owners eye the espresso, pastries, and sandwiches at Dutch’s in-store café.
