- For $27, you get a regular bicycle tune-up (a $55 value).
- For $47, you get an intermediate bicycle tune-up (a $95 value).
Manned by a staff of experienced cyclists, Vélos des Ronds-Points keeps bicycles rolling with a cornucopia of maintenance services performed on all varieties of two-wheeled transports. Roust prized velocipedes from an extended winter slumber to gear up for a cycle-heavy summer. Both the derailleur and brakes are adjusted, as well as all ball bearings, allowing for smoother gear shifting when riding. A chain and brake-pivot lubrication banishes sluggish and rusty mechanisms, and tire pressure is adjusted with a little air and a stress-relieving spoke massage. An intermediate tune-up renders all of the services included in a regular tune-up, in addition to a meticulous cleansing of all of the buildup accumulated after a misguided roll down a freshly iced cupcake mountain.

At the age of 14, in the midst of a bike trip, Mathieu Albert realized the true beauty of cycling. And in the many years that have passed since, he’s rarely taken his feet off of the pedals, except for when he’s bathing or polishing his pedals. Mathieu has competed in more than 50 mountain bike competitions and 24-hour races, learned to weld and create his own bike frames, and worked as a technician and salesman at a number of bike shops. Now, as the owner of Vélos des Ronds-Points, he performs tune-ups for cycles and skis and equips fellow cyclists with bikes of all makes and models, including an impressive selection of Cannondale cycles.
