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. Guard against surprise flights with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of gear, parts, and accessories at Sabino Cycles.
For 15 years, Sabino Cycles' staff of bike buffs has been presiding over an expansive stable of two-wheeled steeds and cycling accessories as well as the tools necessary to keep bikes running at full-bore. Suit up in an Intelliskin shirt or sports bra, forged from compression fabrics ($95). Matte black Bell Faction skateboard helmets ($39.99) protect noggins from unsightly spills while the Minoura smartphone handlebar mount ($35) keeps cells close at hand and the Slime smart tube aims to prevent flat tires by sealing punctures and shrieking incessantly when road impediments lie ahead. The versatile Acouztic device ($140) serves as both an LED flashlight and a portable MP3 player, and electra acorn-nut valve caps ($7.99) arrive in red, silver, black, brown, gold, and blue, ready to keep safe the fragile air trapped within bike tires and drunken weather balloons. Though not included with today's deal, those who purchase a bicycle from Sabino Cycles receive free tune-ups for as long as they own the cycle, as well as a complimentary bike fitting and discounts on accessories.
