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. Help spin the spokes of life with today's Groupon: for $5, you get an application of bicycle-tube slime for two tires at Montana Cycling and Ski (a $10 value).
Montana Cycling and Ski outfits enthusiastic cyclists with bicycle-tune-up services for almost any make and model. Inside the 12,000-square-foot green facility, a diligent team of mechanics slimes the inner tubes of bike tires, removing the valve core of the stem and pumping leak-repairing slime into both tubes, giving the bike yet another advantage over jealous unicycles. The green-liquid slime utilizes Fibro-Seal technology to seal punctures that pierce unsuspecting rubber during rough rides. When a wheel wound occurs, escaping air forces the slime, which is filled with fibers and clotting agents, through the hole to prevent further air loss. After tires are reassembled and inflated, swing your legs over the banana seat and feel confident about tackling Montana’s tricky trails.
