We built this LOVELY Ciocc Retro for Kathy… and she LOVES it!

What a beautiful Italian machine... only 50 were made, maybe we can still get YOU one.

 

Those new Campagnolo Ergo levers are so comfortable.

 

Campagnolo Centaur all around, a compact FSA cockpit, it's built for speed!

 

Kathy just LOVES this new Ciocc Retro... it's kinda fast!

This is just the way we like it… all Italiano.

Another 29er you will LOVE to look at… Cody LOVES his Vicious Cycles Motivator

This Motivator gets ridden EVERYDAY... and Cody's shifter doubles as a hyperspace button!

Santa por vida... He loves his hometown of Santa Fe!

Burrque on the stay. The TV show "COPS" is banned from Albuquerque.

Chima, as in Chimayo NM.

My favorite headbadge!

A touch of Catholic pride on the top tube, this bike has it's own Virgin.

Lovin' life in the 505... we have it pretty good here.

Espana is another town up north, Espanola NM.

 

 

 

An elegant Fixed-Gear Commuter destined for the streets of London… the Charge Plug Titanium.

This is a Charge Plug Titanium, our friend Alex was so stoked to find out that it rides even better than it looks!

Sugino 75 cranks and the MKS RX1 Track Pedals with MKS Toe-Clips and Soma Padded Straps make a nice classic-looking combination that fits most types of shoes.

The huge built-in tensioners and bullet-ended stays are very tough looking! The gold chain is a nice splash of bling!

A Wound Up road fork, Thomson Stem, and Origin8 Stash bar along with our Suzue/ H Plus Son's handbuilt wheelset round out the parts on this lovely bike.

 

A Single-Speed 29er that our Photographer absolutely loves to ride, the VooDoo Soukri… bruiser model.

My VooDoo Soukri Single-Speed takes me to some awesome trails, this is the top of Sidewinder... Ya!

The drop-outs on this Soukri are so versatile... you can even put gears on, if you swing that way. The Reynolds 631 tubing is SO forgiving to ride, in spite of what that spine graphic makes you think. The Saint cranks and TimeSport Z-Strong pedals are stiff enough to get me up the hill... most of the time.

The Soma Clarence handlebar is my favorite... ESI silicone grips, Hope Bar Plugs and Paul's LOVE levers of course. The VooDoo Zombie 500 makes the head-angle nice and relaxed for me, and no toe-drag.

Avid BB7 Brakes, Hope Pro II Hubs and skewers, Spot Single-Shot Spacer Kit and a Rennen (machined Alloy) 22 tooth cog round out the rear-end.

This bike climbs, descends and corners like a dream! The Maxxis Ardent is a great ALL-PURPOSE BURLY tire! 2.4 up front 2.25" in back!

 

We have been long awaiting for our Mellow Velo branded goods this summer, and they are finally here! Come and check it …

Here we have our friend Andrew, whom we built this Casati for earlier this Summer, on his normal warm-up spin... Glengarry Glenross on the big screen in back helps lend some motivation. "ALWAYS BE CLOSING!" Andrew!

Vermarc is a Belgian company, Eddy Merckx wore this stuff! Their clothing is produced in Italy to such high standards that certain pro riders insist on it, in spite of what the rest of their team happens to wear. "Coffee is for closers only!"

Our custom outerwear is finally here... and there are limited quantities so get by and get them real soon.

 

Spinning past his bamboo grove on the vintage Cinelli rollers, Andrew needs clothing that breathes.

 

The Vermarc outerwear pieces are quite unique... they are designed to breathe as you move in them.

Andrew G. is a powerful rider and sculptor, these are some of his metal pieces. He models our vest here, a must for the Autumn.

Our new bottles... available in any shade of our "TEAM GREEN"
