If you've ever had to convince your neighbor or state senator that your bicycle can in fact get more mileage from a gallon of gasoline than any automobile, you'll need perfectly trued wheels. Today's Groupon gets America's most pedal-crazy city a full bicycle performance tune-up from The Recyclery for $30 (a $65 value). To make your commute easy, this Groupon is available at any of the four locations around Portland, by appointment only.
Your performance tune-up will get you an adjustment of your derailleurs, brakes, headset, bottom bracket, and hubs. The Recyclery's trained velocipede gurus will also pump up your tires to their recommended PSI and wipe away the layer of accumulated grit from your bike's frame. They'll even remove the chain and carefully clean it (along with a complete cleaning of the cassette/freewheel, derailleur, crankset, and chain rings) before polishing your frame, fork, rims, and hubs. The cost of needed replacement parts is not included in your Groupon, but The Recyclery will contact you first with a full consultation before installing anything.
Biking experts and manufacturers recommend getting a bicycle tune-up at least once a year, especially if you're an everyday commuter (P-Town has the highest percentage of bike commuters in the nation). The Recyclery will have the ol' bike and chain feeling as new as the day it emigrated from Bikoslavia.
