Bicycles, like puppies, love rolling around outside, freak out over every twig in the park, and track mud all over your bed when trying to cuddle. Shower your two-wheeled playmate in affection with today’s Groupon to Sports Addiction in Bluffton. Choose between the following options:
- For $24, you get an ultimate bike tune-up (a $49.99 value; any necessary parts extra).
- For $7, you get a gift card for $15 worth of sporting goods.
Sports Addiction’s athletically minded staff helps keep activity enthusiasts equipped for their favorite forms of recreation and also maintains bikes for cyclists. During the ultimate tune-up, mechanics perform a comprehensive de-squeaking, which includes frame and chain cleaning, brake adjustment, and a liberal lubrication of all pivots, cables, and armor joints. Techs torque bolts to manufacturer specifications and adjust crank and steering bearings for a silkier ride. They then spruce up wheels during a rim cleaning, adjustment and greasing of hub bearings, and truing done under intense polygraph testing. For time-crunched patrons, Sports Addiction can arrange local pickup and delivery of bikes for an additional $10.
Gift-card bearers can procure sporting goods from brands such as Under Armour, Raleigh, and Easton. TYR Nest Pro goggles ($12.99+) shield swimmers’ eyes, or a pair of weightlifting wraps ($14.99) provides hands with added leverage for Olympic lifts or lifting extralarge holiday hams overhead to keep them a safe distance from hungry floors. Shelves also stock a bevy of nutrition products priced at less than $15, including energy-delivering Clif Bars.
