I took a worn-out cone nut into a super-fancy NYC bike shop a few months ago hoping they could match it. They sent me to the back where I met this kid who couldn't have been a day older than 20--gorgeous kid, looked like a model. He took one look at it, looked me straight in the eye, and said: "Oh, you're going need a new wheel."

Sorry for the OT rant. There are also a lot of good bike shops here in NYC. R & A Cycles out here in Brooklyn seems to specialize in fancy Italian bikes like yours. They also seem very knowledgeable and helpful, and while you're there you can ogle all the $$$ bikes and frames hanging from the walls and ceiling.
