As with human babies, caretakers know mountain bikes need attention when they emit high-pitched squeaks, issue unpleasant gurgles, and display muddy undersides. Make sure your bike gets the love and care it deserves with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a basic bike tune-up at The Hub at Backcountry Outdoors (a $40 value) in Pisgah Forest.
Headed by 23-year cycle czar Jimi Megonnel, The Hub's service center rejuvenates rundown rides with a youthful fountain of maintenance options. In their basic tune-up package, withered wheels can anticipate a brake adjustment, light wheel truing, and a spa-grade sprocket sprucing, and derailleur and headset adjustments abound. Finally, the chains are lubricated, helping the bike to reach top speed and the rider to perform Houdini-esque escapes for the entertainment of passing pedalers.
The shop also sells hiking and camping equipment and boasts an in-store bar, standing as a sentry at the entrance to the Pisgah National Forest, a refuge for exhausted explorers, and a starting point for arboreal adventurers.
