Like the Tin Man, bikes need to be properly lubed, or they’ll break down on long journeys and be carried away by flying monkeys. Protect your two-wheeled pet with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a standard bike tune-up at Pedal Power Bicycles in Mechanicsville (a $45 value).
In business since 1981, Pedal Power boasts a team of bike geniuses that can make a customer's rust-riddled beater ride as smoothly as a hoverboard. Services start with a front- and back-wheel truing to ensure fast, fluid motion, followed by a gear and brake adjustment that replaces the need for bike-rider counseling sessions to work on communication skills. Mechanics straighten the bottom bracket, headset, and wheel hubs as necessary, and grease the chain to facilitate smooth, speedy shifts. Finally, tires inhale fresh air to balance freshly cleaned frames.
