Much like robots, children, and robotic children, bikes need to be regularly recalibrated to keep them from developing human emotions. Keep your bike performing at its functional, unfeeling best with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

  • $27.50 for a full bike tune-up (a $55 value)
  • $47.50 for a deluxe bike tune-up (a $95 value)
  • $20 for a four-hour bike rental for two (a $40 value)
  • $39 for a full-day bike rental for two (an $80 value)

During full bike tune-ups, technicians wash, detail, and lube bicycles' cables, pivots, and drivetrains before shielding their frames with a protective coat. They then inspect all cogs and tweak brakes and derailleurs before checking fasteners and tire pressure, culminating in a test ride. The deluxe tune-up includes all the same services, plus a truing of both wheels and an adjustment of the cone tension. For bike rentals, riders can choose from a variety of road and fitness bikes from Specialized. Groupon buyers can insure their ride for an extra $10, and rent a flat pack—which includes a seat bag, tire levers, mini pump, and tube—for $5.

Plaine and Son

Like the bicycle cogs they frequently fine-tune, Plaine and Son’s highly trained staff works together to keep the business running smoothly. Plaine and Son has been expertly stocking and servicing bikes, skis, and snowboards since the 1960s. With cycles from brands such as Specialized and Trek and boards and skis from Atomic and Salomon, employees have a huge cache from which they help outdoor adventurers select the right gear based on riding styles or how many jet skis they plan to haul behind their bikes. Staffers also enlist the Specialized BG Fit Program and other fitting tools to pair riders with the right-size bikes. Once fitted, bikers can join in on Plaine and Son’s weekly group rides or enjoy free workshops in the store, which focus on biking basics such as how to mend a flat or jump the public pool blindfolded.
