Like the Tin Man, bikes need to be properly lubed or they’ll break down on long journeys and be carried away by flying monkeys. Make sure your bike is in tip-top shape with today's Groupon to Uptown Cycles. Choose from two options:
- For $27, you get a bike-safety check (a $35 value) and $15 store credit toward repair services, classes, or store merchandise (a total value of $50).
- For $50, you get two bike-safety checks (a $70 value) and a $30 store credit toward repair services, classes, or store merchandise (a total value of $100).
Uptown Cycles, co-owned by USA National Cycling Champion Robin Farina, hosts a team of biking enthusiasts who fine tune two-wheelers and supply gear for both casual and competitive bikers. To ensure road-readiness, the detailed safety check thoroughly examines the bicycle's components for potential hazards, such as an overly sensitive eject-from-seat button. An expert technician adjusts the brakes and shifting mechanisms to facilitate abrupt stops and secures the stem, saddle, and seat post to prevent wiggly rides. After greasing down the chain and derailleur pivots, the cycle-physician then takes the bike on a test ride and performs a final check for a double dose of certainty. Additionally, a $15 or $30 store credit can be applied toward store merchandise, classes, repair services for diagnosed problems, such as a flat tire ($7.50), or a spontaneously combusted frame.
In addition to its service center, Uptown Cycles also uses an in-house FITTE system to determine which of their new bicycles makes the perfect companion to aspiring riders. Delve into a bounteous selection of apparel ($2.69+) and accessories ($0.99+) to gear up for cycling expeditions, or develop competitive skills with coaching and classes.
