Bike shops fix everything from rusty bike chains to frames bent by the hooves of vengeful, unemployed horses. Spruce up your mechanical steed with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $29 for a standard bike tune-up (a $69 value)
- $39 for a drivetrain tune-up and cleaning (an $80 value)
The drivetrain service includes a brake adjustment, wheel tensioning and truing, and a thorough cleaning and lubricating of the chain, cassette, and crank.
Easy Rider Bikes
Just as bicycling itself is a solitary sport, the owner of Easy Rider Bikes, Marshall Walls, prefers to be the only one at the shop’s handlebars. “I’m not a control freak, but I have a high standard for work,” he told the Post and Courier in 2007. “Besides, I can do the work of about three people.” Walls’ confidence stems from experience: since 1984, he’s successfully maintained his one-man operation in the same 1,400-square-foot space he bought at the age of 25, when most adults choose to just go into hibernation. After a brief period selling Schwinn and Peugeot bikes, Walls devoted himself to service, and today he keeps wheels spinning smoothly with everything from standard tune-ups to restorations. Still, he keeps the essentials—helmets, seats, pedals, and pumps—in stock, lest bikers attempt to race down an oil-slicked hillside unprepared.
