The tires of a bicycle work in tandem, much like peanut butter and jelly, actors in a buddy film, or thumbs engaged in a wrestling match. Syncopate your ride with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a quick bike tune-up at Turin Bicycle, located in Evanston (a $65 value).
Turin Bicycle's roadway technicians have gussied up the gears of two-wheelers with a full menu of maintenance services and well-aligned cycling solutions since 1965. With a quick bike tune-up, ornery rides receive a professional adjustment of front and rear derailleurs, brakes, and headgear for optimal road and hedge-maze maneuverability. Chains, pivots, and cables lap up streams of hard-earned oil before a repair professional inflates tires to properly conditioned pressure. A final cleaning of the frame and safety inspection allow riders to tackle pavement and trails without getting stopped by traffic cops or bears wearing ranger hats. While additional parts or services may be required following the quick tune-up, they are not included as part of this Groupon. Turin Bicycle's knowledgeable team of friendly professionals is also happy to divulge sporting advice, along with a comprehensive sampling of clothing, accessories, and rubber Lance Armstrong masks.
