Pushing to the limit: Vento Bike Achievements

There’s no better level of product testing than pushing our bikes to their limit on the roads.
Our valuable team of customers, each riding their custom frames unique to themselves, have taken part in countless cycling events all over the world. Plenty of these rides and events place physical and mental strength not only on the rider, but also stress on their bikes and equipment as well.

Collated below are only few of the many prestigious and demanding events our riders and their Vento X bikes have completed. Ride on!

IRONMAN France 2016 

Ironman France 2016Just last month, one of our riders successfully completed Ironman France. As an introduction, a full Ironman triathlon includes a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride ending of with a 42km run. The terrain in France featured a bike stage with almost 1,000m of elevation. Equipped with a shallow profile climbing wheel-set, the striking light blue custom Vento X.3 was pushed up steep climbs and endured winding and technical descents over the scenic 180km bike route.

EPIC Riders 1000 km Ride, Malaysia to Singapore

A non-profit organisation operated by a group of cycling enthusiast riding for charity, the Epic Cyclist group has since 2012 til now, held annual long distance rides every year to raise funds for the Kidney Dialysis Foundation. Going the extra mile each year, qualifying for the actual EPIC 1000km ride itself requires participants to go through 500km trial rides to qualify. A true test of endurance and perseverance, and also for a good cause helping charity. Find out more about this amazing initiative and the Epic Cyclists here: www.facebook.com/the.epic.ride

Since the start, our riders have taken part in several editions of the 500km trials and actual 1000km rides. Here are a few pictures of them in action!IMG_0572


Century Rides

A century ride is a bicycle ride of 100 miles, which is equivalent to 160km. Usually a big event with many groups of cyclist participating, century rides are a test of endurance and perseverance – as an average century would take anywhere from 5 to 6 hours for an average cyclist to complete. Together with other local cycling groups, many of our Aleoca riders have taken part and completed different century rides overseas. We’ve had riders complete Melaka Century, Perak Century, Kuantan Century Ride and our local 168km Bike Rally organised by NTU.

Always riding, local and abroad

When riders of all different walks of life come together to ride – we’re all playing a part and making our cycling community in Singapore a more diverse and friendly one. remember to say hi if you see our Vento Bikes on the road!

All you need to know about Disc Brakes

Disc Label

Dating back to the 1950s, disc brakes have undergone constant development and improvements to become what they are today. With braking power and are high reliability in dry or wet weather, disc brakes can commonly be found on many mountain and off-road bicycles.

A disc brake consists of a metal disc or rotor attached to the wheel hub that rotates with the wheel. Brake calipers are attached to the fork along with pads that squeeze together on the disc when the brake levers are applied.

DB 1 iiThis post will cover the common issues with cable disc brakes and how to tune them for optimum braking performance — starting with the different parts and how they work.

Important parts of disc brakesDB Label 1 iiDB Label 2 updatedDB 3 iii updatedHow they work:

Cable disc brakes are activated via cable pull from the brake levers. When the brakes levers are depressed, the cable disc caliper only causes one side of the brake pad to move inwards and clamp onto the disc rotor. In later steps, the non-moving brake pad is able to be adjusted via the limit adjuster.Db caliper movingCommon issues with disc brakes include the brakes feeling loose and a loud squealing noise while rolling. When the brakes are not engaged, the brake pads should not be touching the disc rotor. The pictures below show the ideal clearance that the brake pads should have from the disc.

4 picsThe following steps will help rectify:

– Disc Calipers that are uneven or rubbing the disc

– Disc Brakes with poor stopping power

Step 1: Loosening alignment bolts

This step allows you to set the brake caliper alignment and ensure that the brake pads do not rub the disc.

DB 3 iii updatedThese alignment bolts help hold the entire disc brake caliper in place.DB 3 WIP iiUsing an Allen key, turn the bolts anticlockwise to loosen until the caliper can be moved.

Step 2: Setting the caliper position

With the caliper bolts loosened and able to move, fully depress the brake lever so that the brake pads are engaged. This will help align the caliper and set the brake pads evenly apart. DB 4 i

DB 4aWhen the brake lever is fully depressed, the caliper arm should move upwards due to the brake cable pull.

With the brake lever still fully depressed, tighten the adjustment bolts by turning them clockwise to fasten the caliper back in place. DB 5iiiAfter tightening both adjustment bolts, release and test the brakes once again. The caliper will be set at the correct position (no unevenness) and may require some more fine tuning adjustments for perfect braking.

Step 3: Fine tune adjustments for cable tension

Fine tune adjustments will make smaller changes to the brake pad position to eliminate any sounds or rubbing.

Limit Adjuster

DB6 iii

The limit adjuster is found on the inner side of the disc brake, in between the fork. This bolt helps adjust the position of the inner brake pad that does not move. Turning this bolt clockwise will make the inner brake pad move nearer to the disc. Turning this bolt anticlockwise will make the brake pad move further away from the disc.

Make small adjustments to ensure that the inner brake pad does not touch or rub against the disc.

Brake Cable Tension

Similar to other braking systems, disc brakes rely on cable tension to be activated.

The sensitivity of brakes levers differs to each individual. As a guide, it is recommended that the brakes should be engaged when the levers are depressed half way.

DB hand


To increase the cable tension of your disc brakes, first loosen the cable bolt on the calliper. Turn anti clockwise using an Alan key to loosen the bolt.

DB 7 i

With the cable bolt loosened, push and engage the caliper arm upwards and at the same time pull the brake cable wire downwards.


DB 8 iii

After pulling the excess wire, hold the position of the caliper and tighten the bolt back in place.

Barrel Adjuster

Turning the barrel adjuster will also make fine tune adjustments to the brake action.

Remember to check that all bolts are tightened properly and that parts are aligned and in good condition before going out for your ride!

16″ Little Red Dot, 小红点

The Little Red Dot

Breaking through the conventional single colored frame, we launched a 16″ folding bicycle with little red polka dots plastered all over the frame. “Little Red Dot”, a nickname that is very often used as reference to Singapore, translates into a design that effective portrays Singapore: versatile, fun, and lively.

One People, One Nation, One Singapore

If you had THAT specific melody and you sang along with the above caption in your head, you are getting it right. Abstracted from one of the most well known National Day song, One People, One Nation, One Singapore, the lyric exhibits the unity that Singapore has one.

50th Singapore-BS-15 Combi

In August of  year 2015, 1310 units of Little Red Dot were introduced into the Singapore market at a stunning retail price of SGD 50. To achieve this undeniably attractive price for this 16″ folding bicycle, each of the SG50 Little Red Dot bicycles are heavily subsidized, driven with the intention of returning back to the community on the very special year that marks Singapore’s 50th year of independence. |
