This is the result of a thief trying to obscure the serial number of a stolen bike-that we originally sold. On our way to a happy ending

A poster on FB had a good tip: stash a business card or something inside the frame of your bike. Thieves might not think to look. Also take photos.

Really proud of Joan for finishing this enormous accomplishment!
 
JOAN DEITCHMAN FINISHES: “The really big one.”
By Vic Armijo
 City Dock, Annapolis, MD
 June 25, 2012
 
Last year when Joan Deitchman (Canda) won the Race Across the West it set the stage for her 2012 assault on “The really big one, RAAM,” she said back in Oceanside, “Originally when I was did RAW I had been contemplating doing RAAM but in the end decided that I wasn’t ready for it but wanted to do one last race before going off to start a family. But then went and did RAW and was more successful than I could have ever imagined, got rid of one of the problems I’d had in the 500-milers I’d done and then couldn’t not throw my hat in the ring and give RAAM a chance.” She’s certainly glad that she did give RAAM a chance, having finished today in a time of 12 days, 17 hours and 42 minutes with an average overall speed of 9.74 mph.
 
Deitchman was jovial and spirited, albeit a bit groggy at the finish. Still, when RAAM Race Director George Thomas quipped that she looked fresh enough to knock off ten push-ups, she immediately dropped to the brick deck below the finish banner and complied. Great job Joan! On the stage she talked of the challenges of the past 3,000 miles; of moments of confidence and moments of frustration. She also spoke of the inspiration she took from fellow competitor Janet Christiansen and of how they were able to ride side-by-side a couple of times, “It was just great to be able to talk to someone else who could truly understand where I was physically and mentally at that time,” she said, “I so look up to and admire Janet.”

I have been getting my bikes worked on and repaired for 12+ years by the owners of La Dolce Velo. They are are absolutely fabulous and have wonderful customer service. Last week I had a tuneup, new brakes, new tires, new bike computer and a safety check done on the bike. I also requested a new chain but they noted the existing chain still met safety requirement and no need to change it. (Isn't that nice that a shop does not oversell you on needed service and parts) . After getting my bike back, I rode about 1 mile and discovered a defect in the new tire (which was hard to notice until the tire failed). I brought it back to the shop and they immediately replaced the tire and tubes at now cost as it was a manufacturer defect. I was back on the riding my bike which is like new. I can also thank the shop for a rapid rebuild on one of my bikes rims a few years a few days before a major race I was doing out of state where I needed my bike repaired asap. They did it almost over night. Thank you

The service in LDV is top notch, and they also made sure I had a good helmet, replacing my old styrofoam one earlier this year. I'm about to bring my Specialized Expedition bike in to replace a 20-year-old Sugino AT crank (or maybe just to re-install it?). It feels broken, and I trust this place more than any other, including Trailhead or even REI now.

First time at Dolce Velo the staff is very welcoming. Had an expert show me bikes that fit my size. I loved the bikes lay out. The Quality of service is nice for a tune up. They answered all my questions that had to do with hybrid bikes and road bikes. Love my first visit totally would come back.
