What You'll Get
A broken bicycle frequently leads its cyclist to the wrong destination, and it will emit only a sad trombone sound when you try to brake. Keep your foot-powered steed on track with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a Select Service bike tune-up at Newport Cruisers (a $75 value), located in Newport Beach.
Bring your battered bike to Newport Cruisers' pier-area storefront, where its master mechanics treat it to the full benefit of more than 30 years of experience. Newport Cruisers knows the workings and ticklish spots of all makes and models of bicycle—even custom-built ones—and will tailor their TLC accordingly. The Select Service tune-up starts with an inspection, including recommendations of any additional services. The mechanic will then adjust brakes and gears, check nuts and bolts, and laterally true wheels. After that, brakes, derailleurs, headset, and hubs are calibrated at the exact frequency of time itself. The staff will clean and lubricate the chain, brake, and derailleur cables. Finally, a frame wipe-down leaves the bike cleaner than Boy Scouts singing church hymns around a bonfire of Goofus and Gallant strips.
