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 today's Groupon to Ridgeline Specialty Sports in Eagle. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get a basic bike tune-up (a $39 value).
- For $75, you get $300 toward an in-stock BMC or Giant road bike. Bikes must be priced above $1,000.
The expert wheel-wranglers at Ridgeline Specialty Sports outfit pedal pushers with road-ready rides and perform tune-up services to check for safety and speed. During the basic bike tune-up, cycle savants adjust front and rear brakes and derailleurs, ensuring smooth stops and easy switching between gears and stunt-double occupations. Chains luxuriate with a cleaning and a lubing, and tires fill their cheeks with air to reach the proper flat-preventing pressure. Not to be outdone, headsets receive a thorough tightening and alignment, and critical nuts and bolts benefit from being clamped down to levels rivaled only by the mouths of broccoli-avoiding children. While parts are not included with this Groupon, installation can be provided for purchased tubes.
Ridgeline's bike inventory, like the seasons and Benedict Arnold's favored breakfast spot, changes frequently. Recent offerings include ladies' and gents' roadsters from BMC, which had a winning bike in the Tour de France, and Giant. BMC showcases a lightweight aluminum frame in the Sparkle SP01 ($1,499.99). An oversized head tube lures saddle-sitters to Giant's Defy 2 ($1,099), granting easy cornering for urban cyclists and bi-wheeled mice navigating through city mazes.
