Like the Tin Man, bikes need to be properly lubed to prevent them from breaking down on long journeys or from being carried away by a flock of flying monkeys. Keep wheels rolling smoothly with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a basic bike tune-up from Tom’s Mobile Bike Service (a $75 value). The basic tune-up includes:
- General inspection
- Brake adjustment
- Wheel truing
Tom’s Mobile Bike Service brings its one-man bicycle shop to the location of the cycle owner’s choice, treating two-wheelers to thorough tune-ups that un-gunk gears and readjust wheels. The wheel-whisperer trains his experienced eye on rides in order to recalibrate derailleurs and brakes. Wheels, spokes, and treads each receive individual attention during the wheel truing, which pampers the front and rear tires of bikes with revitalizing hands-on inspections and aims to identify performance inhibitors, such as wheel spokes decorated with lead-coated bicycle cards.
