The top three most efficient modes of human-powered transportation are (in no particular order): Flintstone cars, bicycles, a palanquin carried by the various monarchs you've conquered and overthrown. Make sure the most feasible of these is in perfect working order with today's deal: for $30, you get a full bike tune-up at Spin Bike Shop in Lakewood (a $60 value).
A full tune-up begins with a bike bath followed by surgical adjustments to your two-wheeler's headset, cranks, hubs, and brakes. Front and rear derailleurs are inspected and buffed to halt chain hiccups and ensure smooth shifts, and wheels undergo a truing process to increase pedal-pumping efficiency. Tightening every nut and bolt before a safety inspection makes sure rides are road-ready. Spin's knowledgeable staff guarantees a 48-hour turn-around time for most services, giving you plenty of time to bike alien pals to spaceship rendezvous points.
In addition to being experienced riders, some of Spin's mechanics are USCF-certified professionals. Since the service shop is inside the showroom, you can watch these gear heads in action and check out a variety of helmets, biking apparel, and sparkly handlebar streamers.

- Spin was the only shop who took the fact that the bike was a beater into consideration; they trued the rim and replaced several spokes for under $20.00. everyother [sic] bike shop insisted I had to buy a new rim. Great, honest, value priced work! – Kyle
- I have had my great little city bike serviced here for the last two years. They were wonderful:effiecent [sic] and no overselling. No condescending attitudes. – A Google Mapper who posted on 07/03/10
Spin Bike Shop
An avid cyclist, the owner of Spin Bike Shop helms a staff of certified mechanics and professional racers. Together, they keep their shelves stocked with bikes for all seasons and activities: cyclocross races, road riding, triathlons, mountain trails, and moon jumping. Inside, shoppers can peruse cycles from big-name brands such as Specialized, BMC, Ridley, and Santa Cruz. Mechanics perform a slew of services—such as fittings, repairs, demo-bike rides, and rentals. Staff members also teach classes on how to make basic roadside repairs, perform complete tune-ups, or use a bike frame to fend off an agitated mountain lion. When the staffers aren’t wrenching on bikes, they’re hosting events and welcoming cyclists and triathletes to join their teams and clubs.
