It's The Little Things

Our Service Team pays attention to every detail.

At this time of year we spend a lot of time building the new bikes shipped by the factory in boxes. We want these beauties on the floor ready for you to test ride and take home. 

At La Dolce Velo, we believe the little things are what set apart your experience in our shop. In the photo above, the mechanic uses a thin blade as a tuning spacer in the back half of the brake pad while he adjusts the brakes. This is so that when you squeeze the brake lever, the front of the pad toes in and touches the rim first, avoiding that nasty squealing sound. Don't worry, we remove the spacer after the tuning is done!

This is just one example of the care we take when we build and tune every bike, from the beautiful $499 Bianchi Milano Dama pictured above to the Pinarello F8 ($5750 frame). It takes an extra few minutes but the result is that your riding experience is better and more fun, and your bike works at its best.

Today's Tip

Wheel Wobbles? – When you’re riding regularly, it’s possible for spokes to loosen. So, it’s wise to regularly check the wheels before rides. The sign of a loose spoke is a wheel that wobbles from side to side when you spin it. If your wheel wobbles, go around the wheel wiggling each spoke in your fingers to find ones that feel looser than the others. Find some? You’ll need to snug the loose spokes to remove the wobble. We’re experts at this. If you’d like to try, one way to do it is by plucking the tight spokes on the same side of the rim as the loose spokes and listening to the tone they make. Then gradually tighten the loose spokes until they make the same sound when plucked. This should remove the wobble.
