As Veloce enters its ninth season, I would like to thank all our loyal customers for your great support over the last eight years. Veloce has grown into the bike shop I had always hoped it would be and has been the high point of my career. All of you have been a big part of that. The store has been built on the foundation of great customer service, deep knowledge of and belief in the power of cycling, and a commitment to the community around us.
As of October 20, 2010, Brent Engstrom will take over as Owner of Veloce and I will be moving on to a new venture. After a break to spend time on my bike and lay on the beach in Costa Rica (ordered by Denise, my intelligent Wife), I will be beginning the next chapter of my bicycle career. Starting January 2011, I will be opening a professional fitting studio focusing on my passion of working with people one on one and getting them on a bike that properly fits them.
When I met Brent, I knew that he was the right person to take the Veloce legacy forward. I am very pleased to leave Veloce in his capable hands. He is a highly knowledgeable professional in our field and will continue the quality service that Veloce has been built on.
Thanks again for your loyalty and friendship through out the years. I have promised to stop by the shop from time to time and look forward to seeing you in the future around town.
Demetri and Denise
