The velocipede gurus behind The Urban Commuter support local pedalers in their quest to make a positive impact on the environment and their health by ensuring noncar conveyances sail smoothly on cement seas. Tune-ups resolve misaligned parts, clean out accrued gunk, and ensure bicycles are the well-oiled speed machines they’re meant to be. During an advantage tune-up, one of the seasoned gurus oils bikes, aiming to improve their performance and their chances in the swimsuit portion of the subsequent inspection. After deeming the pedal-machine safe during the checkup, they’ll quickly clean the body and make minor adjustments to wheels and major mechanical systems. A deluxe tune-up, on the other hand, spiffs two-wheeled steeds further, de-crunching moving parts by making adjustments to the bearings, tinkering brakes and derailleurs into place, and truing delinquent wheels into riding the straight and narrow path. Otherwise, the ultra tune-up fully overhauls weary systems, pampering rickety frames and mending mechanical and emotional issues generated by neglect or consistent riding. Then they’ll summon sparkles during a complete clean, wax, and detail before thoroughly overhauling the hubs, headset, bottom bracket, and jet-propulsion system. New cables are included in the ultra tune-up, but any extra parts and installation required during any tune-up are not covered.
