Plan B Cycling’s velocipede virtuosos ready bi-wheeled roadsters for competitive racing and leisurely rides with professional tune-ups, earning them the 2008 title of “Best New Shop in North America” by Bicycle Retailer and Industry News. Before lubing the chain and adjusting gears, brakes, and bearings, they’ll commence the basic tune up by removing dirt from the body and obsolete Football Ballet League trading cards from the spokes. One of these staffers then perform a wheel truing to align wobbly wheels, refill the tires with air, and helm a safety check and test ride to ensure bikes are in tip-top shape. A superior tune-up builds upon the services in the basic tune-up, tacking on a wash and wax of the frame and wheels, as well as a thorough cleaning and greasing of the bottom bracket. They’ll also check the bike chain and tire wear. Otherwise, the premium tune up involves a complete overhaul of the bike, commissioning bike gurus to disassemble the entire road warrior before degreasing and polishing all of the parts.
