The top three most efficient modes of human-powered transportation are (in no particular order): Flintstone cars, bicycles, and a palanquin carried by the various monarchs you've conquered and overthrown. Make sure the most feasible of these is in perfect working order with today's deal: for $20, you get a total bike tune-up ($65 value) at Paradise Garage. This urban cycling shop in the Short North Arts District is a solid place to find or refine a hot two-wheeler, stock up on essential riding gear, or meet your next tandem bike partner.
Each Paradise Garage tune-up includes a bevy of adjustments that run (or ride) the gamut from simple checks to in-depth alterations. Paradise's dedicated bike experts will fine-tune your gearshifts for smooth, seamless shifting during transitional pedal pumping. They'll also check and correct your brakes so that you can stop on a dime, pick it up, and then use it on a payphone to call your favorite radio station—without ever once dismounting your bike. If necessary, Paradise Garage will also remove and true your tires to reduce wobbling, friction, and filthy language. Lubed-up chains will further increase the smoothness of your ride, and a deep cleaning is guaranteed to leave a fleeting sparkle in the eyes of every lowly walker you pass. Your bike's supreme makeover will be rounded out with an adjustment of its hubs, headset, and bottom bracket.
Each grand master cyclist at Paradise Garage knows the ins and outs of your velocipede's every gear, chain, and flux capacitor. If your bike isn't running as smoothly as the day it followed you home, they'll make sure everything is up to snuff using years of experience and a trained eye they all take turns using. There is no limit on the number of Groupons you pick up, so stock up to keep your entire fleet of battle-bikes in tip-top shape throughout the next year of wheelie warfare.
