Bikes are eco-friendly and fun, unlike coal trains, which are powered entirely by Christmastime disappointment. Hop on with this Groupon.
$35 for a Bike Tune-Up ($70 Value)
Techs wipe down the bike frame and meticulously adjust the headset, cranks, hubs, and brakes. After inspecting the derailleurs, they rebuff and lubricate them, along with the chain and brakes. Wobbly wheels regain their proper shape with a truing. The tune-up concludes with a safety inspection, wherein techs tighten nuts and bolts and check the pressure in each tire.
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.
