Bicycling is considered one of the most environmentally friendly forms of exhilaration after skywriting sonnets about the sky on Earth Day. Ensure prolonged pro-Earth fun with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a basic bicycle tune-up at Silver Star Ski & Sport in Park City (a $35 value).
The bicycle buffs at Silver Star Ski & Sport nurse neglected velocipedes back to peak performance with a full range of bicycle repairs. The crew kick-starts the basic tune-up by scrubbing stubborn mud from bike frames and evicting hitchhiking drifters from sullied reflectors. Next, wobbly wheels are trued and subjected to a rigorous polygraph test until they are back on the straight and narrow. Silver Star’s spoke specialists will also lube grinding chains, tweak the derailleur for seamless gear shifts, and bleed the brakes with leeches to render them instantly responsive once again. Silver Star completes most tune-ups on the same day and provides shuttle service for bikers who need to get on with their day.
Pedal proprietors with more grievously injured two-wheelers can upgrade to the full tune-up for an additional $35 (a $70 value). The full tune-up includes all the perks of the basic, but also removes the entire drive train and tape deck, then soaks them in a parts soaker.
