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. Energize exasperated spoke-mobiles with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a basic tune-up at Mad Cat Bicycles (a $75 value) at Town & Country Village. This Groupon excludes tune-ups for department-store bicycles such as Huffy, Mongoose, and Next.

At Mad Cat Bicycles, customers can maintain their muscle-powered two-wheelers, ensuring no malfunctions flare up as they cruise the skies with the power of telekinesis. Thanks to a skilled staff of spoke soothsayers and pedaling professionals, Mad Cat wraps squeaky and jittery cycles in a lubricating cocoon that nurtures the moving parts of pavement-traversing vessels. Each tune-up adjusts the brakes, derailleur, hubs, headset, bottom bracket, and afterburner rockets. Wheels are trued into wind-cutting straightness, and the drive train is cleaned and lubed to provide optimal pedal-propelled efficiency. Additionally, the bicycle is wiped down and undergoes a test ride to check for any kinks and clingy barnacles hampering a smooth ride.

No one at a department store can tell if a bike frame is bent, if the brakes are loose, or if the front tire has been stabbed repeatedly with a 16-inch serrated knife. The bike-savvy staff at Mad Cat Bicycles can, and they'll tune up each cycle so it doesn’t buck riders at the first sight of a steep hill or approaching phalanx. Call ahead or send a horn-blowing herald to schedule an appointment.
