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 to Mountain Equipment Co-op, located on Portage Avenue. Mountain Equipment Co-op is a specialty outdoor sporting goods store offering a wide variety of bike-repair services, from simple installation of racks and fenders to a total bike overhaul, including a cosmetic tire lift and streamer extensions. Today's deal gets you either a basic or advanced bike tune-up to get withered two-wheelers road-ready. All repairs are assured by MEC's Rock Solid Guarantee, which is enforced by actor/bodybuilder Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Free safety inspections and flat-tire repairs (with a tube purchase) are also available with every visit. Choose one of two cycle-pampering options:
- For $27, you get a basic bike tune-up (a $45 value), which includes adjustments for brakes, hubs, and front and rear derailleurs
- For $39, you get an advanced bike tune-up (a $65 value), which includes all the trappings of the basic, along with a cleaning of all chains, cogs, and cranks, as well as truing and tensioning wheels..
