Much like robots, children, and robotic children, 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 $30, you get a pro bike tune-up at Hub City Bicycle Co. in Jackson (a $60 value).
Hub City Bicycle Co. keeps a foothold in the Jackson biking scene by catering to recreational and serious cyclists with professional-grade equipment, gear, and services. The pro tune-up revivifies bikes with a sudsy bath for brakes and chains, adjustment of gears and brakes, and lube of the chain and gears. Experienced technicians will also inspect the wheels for proper alignment and inflate the tires with gratuitous compliments. A final bike wipe-down for aesthetic purposes lends an attractive glisten to the frame.
Wait times are kept as comfortable as possible with a cushy couch for customers, while the showroom floor occupies loiterers by showcasing equipment, gear, and apparel from brands such as Felt, Jamis, and Pinarello. Hub City is an active participant in the Jackson biking community, offering weekly rides of 21–26 miles where bikers can socialize and laugh at runners still operating on obsolete feet.

At Hub City Bicycle Co., staffers don't just sell the cycling lifestyle—they live it. In addition to manning the shop, employees host weekly rides that cover 21 to 26 miles of terrain and warmly welcome novice cyclists, fitting them with the right cycle using the Fit Kit system. They’ll also help bikers navigate racks of Giant and Haro bikes mixed with bikes from brands born in Tennessee, such as Lynskey Performance and Cysco Cycles. After complementing fresh rides with the proper gear, accessories, and apparel, patrons can steer bikes home, confident that any future flats incurred by rusty nails or jaywalking porcupines will be expertly handled by the shop's service department.
