Bicycles need regular tune-ups to cruise smoothly and shoulder the weight of eco-friendly clown gangs. Buff up your bike's body with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a full bicycle tune-up and drive-train cleaning at PV Bicycle Center in Rolling Hills Estates (a $110 value).
Servicing street stallions for more than four decades, PV Bicycle Center's expert technicians tune up two-wheelers in seven steps. To jump-start the full-frame physical, bikes are hoisted into the air like chain-clad cheerleaders, allowing their frames, spokes, and handlebar pompons to undergo a thorough scrubbing. Next, technicians strip components and degrease them in an ultrasonic cleaner. Submitting your cycle to a shifting and brake adjustment improves its ability to switch speeds and stop, leaving it too well-adjusted to author a spiteful memoir about its winter in the garage. Further adjustments to hubs, bottom brackets and headset bearings encourage peak performance. Finally, adjustors carry out minor wheel truing, check the tires, and breathe new life into your bicycle's rubber lungs.
