After years of unsuccessful attempts at inventing a two-wheeled form of propulsion, Wilbur and Orville Bike finally realized the problem was that their prototypes were all screwed to the gymnasium floor. Achieve functional mobility with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a full bike tune-up at The Bike Connection in Palo Alto (an $80 value).
Recognized in 2008 as one of Bicycle Retailer’s Top 100 Bike Shops in the U.S., The Bike Connection serves all bipedal peddlers looking to buy, rent, or maintain a velocipede. The full tune-up unleashes professionally trained and certified mechanics upon the two-pronged mobile devices, serving up liberal brake and derailleur adjustments, truing crooked wheels, and tightening any loose bolts looking to jump ship. The technicians then free up the crankset’s angular potential with a bottom bracket adjustment, un-break brakes, and shower cranky chains with liberating lubricants. With more than 25 years of bike-tinkering experience, this fully equipped, family-owned bicycle asylum returns aging bicycles to a vigor reminiscent of their training-wheel years.
All cycle surgeons attend training sessions with factory service technicians multiple times a year, learning the master crafts of the bike overhaul and surgically separating tandem bicycles with conjoined break levers. Though The Bike Connection is the largest independent dealer for Marin Bikes, its tire doctors are certified to work on all makes and models. Stop in for a free, no-obligation estimate.

- Every member of the staff has been extremely, extremely helpful. The prices are either comparable or better than other local bike shops, and installation is efficient and well-done. – Christine M., Yelp, 2/10/11
