$19 for a Basic Bike Tune-Up at Canyon Sports (Riverdale)

$19 for a Basic Bike Tune-Up at Canyon Sports LINK - Select Ogden as your city

Before wintertime hibernation, bicycles forage and fill their inner tubes with enough sustenance to feed training-wheeled cubs come spring, a noble act that often leads to serious exhaustion. Help spin the spokes of life with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a basic bike tune-up (a $45 value) at Canyon Sports, in Riverdale.

Having tuned Salt Lake City's wheelmobiles for more than 20 years, Canyon Sports' bike geniuses know how to make a rust-riddled beater ride as smoothly as a hoverboard. The practiced gearheads will treat your machine to a ceremonial wipe-down of the frame, wheels, and drive train. Next, they'll adjust the gears, brakes, headset, and bottom bracket before executing a minor wheel truing to straighten your wheel's spin. Finally, after tightening loose bolts and replacing runaway tire air with docile tire air, they'll return your formerly prodigal two-wheeled traveler squeaky clean, focused, and refreshed, allowing you to cut corners like a pro or etch your phone number into your driveway to pick up attractive hang gliders.
