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 $19, you get a complete bicycle tune-up package at Lake Country Cycle in Lake Country (a $49.95 value).

Lake Country Cycle’s team of expert mechanics rehabilitate ailing rides with a complete tune-up package that promotes smooth and safe pedalling. Two-wheeler whisperers kick off the grooming service with an inspection and consultation that identifies trouble spots, followed by a brake adjustment and brake-pivot cleaning to grant heels respite from instigating spark-filled stops. Stubborn front and rear derailleurs get a much-needed inspection and attitude adjustment, and debilitated bikes then undergo a full safety inspection followed by meticulous checks and adjustments to true wheels and secure potentially problematic elements including bolts, fasteners, and bearings. A full bike wash expunges evidence of muddy romps and handlebar-moustache tattoos from begrimed frames, and technicians deftly degrease and lubricate chains for friction-free excursions. Finally, a tire inflation floods flattened tires and their deflated egos with renewed bounce and an imperviousness to the sticks and stones hurled at them by rocky roads.
