Before wintertime hibernation, bicycles forage and fill their inner tubes with enough sustenance to feed training-wheeled cubs come spring, a noble act that often leads to serious exhaustion. Tune up weathered pedal pushers with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get one bike tune-up (a $54.99 value) at Greenstreet Cycles, located near the Qwest Center.
At Greenstreet Cycles, visitors can maintain their thigh-toning green-mobiles with expert care so they’ll never buck riders at an inopportune moment or whinny all night when locked to a pole. An experienced cabal of frame tamers employs fingertip dexterity and steady-handed wrench wielding to tone bikes into wind-cutting road rockets. A bike tune-up includes front and rear derailleur adjustment, front and rear wheel truing, front and rear brake adjustment, as well as a chain cleaning and lube. With a smooth-running spoke spinner, riders won’t have to worry about time-consuming maintenance and can instead rip through the streets while toning their calves and catching the eye of livestock auctioneers.
Amid a welcoming atmosphere decorated with sightly murals and vivid wall colors, visitors can relax while the spa treatments turn their wheelmobiles into smooth, relaxed, and unstoppable road-traversing hover-mobiles. No one at a department store can tell whether a bike frame is bent, the brakes are loose, or the front tire has been stabbed repeatedly with a 16-inch serrated knife. The bike-savvy staff at Greenstreet Cycles can, and they'll iron out any kinks with the efficiency of a steam-blasting bike whisperer.
Take a look at what the Omaha World-Herald says about Greenstreet Cycles:
- A pedal-peddling retailer is spinning into north downtown, selling bicycles and related accessories for everyone from racers to commuters and offering bike rentals and taxis to tourists, concertgoers and future ballpark visitors. – Christine Laue
Even in the cold, blue stillness of a winter morning, the bike techs at Greenstreet Cycles can be seen locking up their cycles before opening shop for the day. Leading by example, they advocate eco-friendly commuting throughout the year and work to keep their customers' rides in shape for such endeavors by performing basic adjustments, seasonal tune-ups, and complete overhauls. The Greenstreet Cycles team also recycles old parts by donating to the Community Bike Project—an organization dedicated to equipping community members with bikes and knowledge on how to keep those bikes in tip-top condition and riding in straight lines as opposed to continuous circles.
