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.

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"

 

 

 

We had a GREAT TIME @ The Bicycle Beauty Pageant and Kaleidospoke… here is a peek at the festivities!

I hope you got one of these in your spokes...

 

... if you did, it means your bike was in contention for the Bicycle Beauty Pageant.

The spoke cards were made by Joel Lipovetsky for the event, they are limited… and they’re for CLOSERS.

... another one of Tony's classic cruisers from yesteryear.

 

Kaleidospoke Mural...

Karen's Turner won the "Prettiest" award for 2011, highly deserving bike!

 

Carlos' Pugsley, this bike can roll over anything... or anyone.

Mark and Becky are waiting to be judged!

Donna and her Lazy Susan were all dressed up!

It was a great party with Kaleidospoke and the Bicycle Beauty Pageant together this year.

 

... Judging...

The Judges this year were very HARDNOSE!

 

Rawson's Schwinn Madison... whoa!

David Bell's Peach and Andrew's Casati Laser... chillin'.

 

Bike geeks are funny.

 

Kether checks out the chrome Schwinn LeTour that we all knew was gonna win Best of Show as soon as we saw it roll in.

Carlos has a SERIOUS bike addiction!

Val's vintage Stumpjumper, there is one of these in the Smithsonian!

 

Ginger played some awesome tunes for us.

Hannah and Andrew offer their critique on this year's field.

Best Fixie was won by our very own JC Walker!

We attracted quite a crowd this year!
