Stage One Bike Service & £10 voucher for £24.25 at Action Bikes London Stores (via Groupon)

No referral links please! This will be a great deal for a cheap post-winter service as the voucher doesn't expire until 29th March 2012. Voucher only valid in Whitton, Wimbledon, Victoria, Sheen and Embankment stores. Same level services at bike stores in general cost £50, and you get a £10 voucher thrown in too!

"In an extensive stage one bike service, wheels, cockpit, transmission, brakes, saddle and fittings will be checked, pumped-up, oiled and tightened. With repairs available in-store and a £10 voucher towards any product from inner tubes to pannier bags, patrons can leave with sharp stops, smooth acceleration, and smiling faces." actionbikes.co.uk/wor…tml

My tip would be if you know parts need replacing, buy them yourself and fit them as best you can, then when you take it for the service they can fit them properly!

seems a lot for some spotty kid to spend 5 minutes tightening a few bolts and spray a bit of wd40 over a bike

Why does Groupon always seem not that great

With the exception of Halfords, the mechs in specialist bike stores are generally hardcore bikers themselves! And like I said, a service at this level normally costs £50, so I don't think £15 taking the voucher into account is that bad!!

There are a lot of bike shops full of flannel and overpriced parts. Get a proper set of bike tools, learn how to do properly, take your time to get it right, don’t fit low quality components and buy your parts on the net. It’s cheaper and far more satisfying.

what a joke! i was thinking this to be for a motorbike or scooter but not a blinking bicycle.....this can be done quite easily by an individual and with minimal tools and common sense. Looks like there's people out there with more money than sense as it doesnt take a specilaist to sort those items on a bicycle regardless of what bike you may have. COLD!

This is a deal for a bike service. I do my bike maintainance myself, but there are those out there who might not have the time or knowhow to do research, to find out how to maintain their bike, then maintain it properly and perfectly. Please try to be a bit more open-minded, not everyones a know-it-all...

The deal may have reached minus 31 degrees but there’s no need to get all defensive. Just because people don’t agree with you, it doesn’t mean that they are not open-minded or they know it all. Chill out.
