Chapel Hill, NC (Vocus) March 12, 2010
Hard-charging cyclists, dedicated riders and beginning bikers have a new choice for bicycle maintenance, repair and customization.
Performance Bicycle, America’s number one specialty bike retailer, is moving to set a new standard in cycling service with its new Spin Doctor Performance Service Plan. The plan is now available in all of Performance’s nationwide retail stores. Every Performance store features a Spin Doctor service area staffed by expert Spin Doctor bike mechanics who will perform basic and advanced bike maintenance and customization on any brand of bike. They also provide their expert advice on cycling and proper care for bikes.
“Performance is now offering a straightforward, easy to understand service plan that gives cyclists reliable and trusted service for the best possible value,” said Darron Mauldin, divisional merchandise manager - Spin Doctor. “Guests can have Performance Spin Doctors do anything from change a flat to stripping down a bike and providing a complete overhaul.”
“Beginning and occasional riders may forget that a bicycle needs to be cared for over time, just like a car needs an oil change every few thousand miles. Enthusiast riders need tune-ups and drivetrain cleanings – if you’re putting a couple of thousand miles on your bike each year, professional tune-ups and drivetrain cleanings are invaluable,” added Mauldin. “We emphasize the value of bike maintenance for the safest, highest performing and most comfortable cycling.”
The Spin Doctor Performance Service Plan
The Spin Doctor Service Plan covers two full years of bicycle maintenance services that have a combined cost well over $300. The new plan is available at $159.99 for an existing bike and $79.99 for any new bicycle purchased at Performance. The plan offers:
- Two professional tune-ups
- Two drivetrain cleanings
- Four flat repairs
- 50% off all other Spin Doctor services
