The top three most efficient modes of human-powered transportation are (in no particular order): Flintstone cars, bicycles, and a palanquin carried by the various monarchs you've conquered and overthrown.

Impala Bicycles descends upon pedal-heavy pavement by pruning bicycles and satisfying cyclists. With the full bike tune-up ($90.34), wistful wheels undergo an adjustment of hubs, bottom brackets, nuts and bolts, brakes and gears, and neuroses. Impala's capable crew insists on a full safety inspection that covers tires, drivetrain condition, and bearings for adjustments and wear. Cables and chains marinate in a lubricant before wheels slip off and a cycle savant trues them to oblivion. The basic tune-up ($67.79) dips into similar territory but focuses on brake adjustment and pad alignment as gears, cables, pulleys, and limit screws sweat under the all-revealing glare of the inspector's interrogation lamps. Meanwhile, pre-tuned cyclists can dive helmet-first into Impala's vast stock of accessories and other services, bestowing frosty bikers with warm winter clothing or donning sturdy snowshoes to rescue two-wheelers from the grip of an abominable snowman.
