As spring spreads like spilled gravy over the land, hibernating bicycles slowly awaken and emerge from the undergrowth, shy and stiff with sleep. Help your own bicycle bosom-buddy rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of bikes, accessories, apparel, and services at The Cycologist, located in Fort Collins.
Composed of a small group of cycling enthusiasts, The Cycologist specializes in customizing and maintaining commuter, racing, and off-road bikes, as well as repair and fitting services. Snap up a retro Marin Drake's Beach 3-speed to cruise in two-wheeled fashion ($409.99), or contribute to your junior's jubilance by showing them how to ride on a Marin MBX 50, complete with training wheels ($219.99). The Cycologist even offers one year of free adjustments with the purchase of any new bike, helpful for when an 11-year-old grows 9 inches and four mustaches over the course of 36 hours.
Stock up on biking accessories, such as an adjustable visor to keep meddling sunshine out of eyes during afternoon commutes ($20). Take advantage of the store's trained, friendly staff of bicycle specialists, who perform a variety of repair and tune-up services to get winter-weary bike back in shape. Treat metal steeds to a minor tuning and adjustment, which includes a complete cleaning, brake and shifter adjustment, and beatifying polish to ensure each bike is shiny enough to be seen by NASA satellites ($45). Serious bikers can upgrade to the pro tune treatment, which provides all the services of the minor tune, plus adjustment of the hub bearings, bottom bracket, and headset, and truing of the wheels ($90).
