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.

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!

A preview of a project we are very proud of… a fillet-brazed Casati Laser

It all starts with a doodle of our client's needs.

Andrew G. laces the wheels for the bike he has been dreaming of riding.

We start the build... we LOVE this process!

S-bend in the Casati fork gives a compliant and responsive ride.

The details on this fork are so muscular!

What a beautiful hub shape... White Industries.

White Industries Virtual-Bolt-Circle Cranks allow you to run ANY gearing combination you desire.

The Deda Cockpit in white is so BOSS!

SRAM Red Components in Silver.

Casati has always done 18k gold headbadges... gotta LOVE those Italians!
