As spring spreads like spilled gravy over the land, hibernating bicycles slowly awaken and emerge from the undergrowth, shy and stiff with sleep. Help your own bicycle bosom-buddy rise and shine with today's deal: for $20, you get a full bicycle tune-up (a $40 value) at Eastside Cycles on South 11th Street. The full-service bike shop repairs, sells, and rents bicycles—and won Best New Bike Shop in a 2010 Nashville Scene readers' poll.
The friendly staff at Eastside is knowledgeable and passionate about the ways of the velocipede, yet also talented at making customers feel welcome and unstupid. After performing a safety check, Eastside's crew will inspect and tighten all the bolts of your bike, as well as degrease and re-lubricate its drive train. They'll also adjust the headset, bottom bracket, brakes, hubs, and derailleur before cleaning the frame and checking it for instability and surprise pipe bombs. Finally, Eastside will inflate tires to their proper PSI to ensure a smooth and worry-free ride over city streets, rural slopes, and vast plains of banana peels. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
- They're friendly and helpful, and I think a bike shop is just what Five Points needs. – Patrick R., Yelp
- Excellent local bike shop. There is no sense of superiority and the staff is very friendly...they carry everything from low end commuter and cruiser bikes all the way up to the custom titanium road bikes. – Ian R., Yelp
