  1. Gallery: Italian style at Expobici

    For those of us who hate the relentless ticking noise that happens on many deep-section carbon wheels, Effetto Mariposa has a solution. Instead of resorting to wrapping a piece of electrical tape around the valve stem to keep it from rattling in the valve hole, use this little piece of Effetto Mariposa Shelter. Shelter is a clear, flexible, adhesive-backed, super impact-absorbing material that is perfect for chainstays. It can make all the difference on a cyclocross or mountain bike by quieting the chain noise and keeping the chainstay’s finish as good as new. Effetto Mariposa now includes little “silencer” pieces cut for the valve stem with every package of Shelter. Photo: Lennard Zinn | VeloNews.com
