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.
