What You'll Get
Bikes are prone to bouts of depression and low self-esteem because so many of them have been abandoned by Santa or stolen from Italian poster-hanging men. Make your bike feel loved with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a basic bike tune-up (an $85 value) from Oasis Bike Works in Fairfax.
Located in a quaint, powder blue house on downtown Main Street, Oasis is a bike repair shop dedicated to pampering both commuter and recreational wheelmobiles. The experienced team of wheel whisperers will have your pedal pusher running as smoothly as it did in its training wheel days after a basic tune-up. The bike makeover begins with basic shifting and brake tuning, ensuring riders can stop on a dime, pick it up, and buy a Chiclet without ever dismounting. Then the team will adjust the hubs, headset, and bottom bracket before they true the wheels and clean and lube dirty chains. The bike folks will also check that all cables are in good shape, giving you a full evaluation before recommending a replacement at an additional charge.
Oasis also offers a free pick-up and drop-off service within a specified radius of the shop for bikes too worn out from wheelie-popping. Aside from basic tune-up services, the shop also specializes in updating and retrofitting old bikes, fitting them to their owner's lifestyle by turning them into virtually new vehicles and ensuring cyclists can stay with their cycles long after that customized Gilbert Gottfried bike horn has lost its appeal.
