Much like robots, 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 $37, you get a minor bike tune-up at Gregg’s Cycle (a $75 value). Choose from the following locations: Alderwood, Bellevue, or Seattle.
Named a Top 100 Bike Retailer by Bicycle Retailer and Best Bike Shop of 2009, Gregg’s Cycle has been greasing hinges and tightening brakes in its shops, which provide bicycle maintenance and merchandise, for more than 70 years. During the minor tune-up, each cycle’s derailleurs, drive train, and bottom bracket all get a sprucing up. Expert mechanics tighten and actively listen to each loose bolt, no matter how crazy, while lubricating and adjusting wobbly hubs and headsets. Downhill trips will fly by faster than a family reunion with a brake adjustment and wheel-tension checkup.
Gregg's Cycle has been bike-riders' resource since 1932. Now owned by its third generation of Greggs, the shop occupies multiple locations, and has occupied a well-worn page in cyclists' address books for decades. From car mount to cog, customers appreciate the store's extensive array of gear, apparel, and bicycles. Those troubleshooting or maintaining their rides, meanwhile, find skilled technique in the hands of Gregg's repair technicians. At the flagship location, cyclists can even rent bikes seasonally, which is helpful for those whose landlords don't want to hear the handlebars bark all night.
