Road & Gravel
Gravel bikes have quickly become the most requested style of bike from Mellow Velo. They allow a more curious road rider to venture off the perfect pavement. We sell a wildly diverse range of these bikes from the lightest weight, to the most indestructible. As for our more traditional road riders, we continue to offer the finest options from brands all over the world. We also co-sponsor the Racing Apparel Team based here in Santa Fe.
Located just minutes from some of Santa Fe's best trails, we take mountain biking seriously. Industry-leading brands such as Santa Cruz, Pivot, Ibis, Orbea, BMC, and Salsa allow us to offer a truly diverse number of options. We are ready to help you make your new bike decision with confidence.
"Such a great crew, all bike enthusiasts that ride every day, super friendly. This is the shop for high quality bikes, that hard to find Italian Steel, and rare bikes you don't see anywhere else! Custom builds are their specialty. Dave is a great guy, and that reflects through his employees. The crew downstairs are the best in town!!"
Try Before You Buy at Santa Fe’s Mellow Velo
“Mellow Velo’s proximity to the tourist areas, the wilderness, and endless dirt roads make it an excellent hub for cycling in Santa Fe. Swing through, say hey to the team, and maybe they’ll pull a shot of espresso for you from their insane Gaggia Orione machine. Here I thought an E61 was a sick machine for a bike shop!"
Jonah and His Kokopelli Warthog Ti Hardtail 29er
“For Jonah, a local of Santa Fe, and an employee at Mellow Velo, the bicycle has helped develop his independence as well as a vehicle to meander around his homeland. His family is one of the deeply embedded heritage households and have been in the area for hundreds of years. Just north of Santa Fe is the town of Chimayo where his family has been weaving for generations under the brand Ortega."
Spaghetti Western: A XCR Tommasini X Fire Disc Road Build
“Mellow Velo, purveyors of modern bikes, with a long history of building up classic Italian road racing machines, recently completed this build for a customer back on the East Coast. Adam, the owner of the bike, refinishes mouthpieces for saxophones, so as you can imagine, he has a particular penchant for procuring pristine pedal machines like this one. Luckily for him, David from Mellow Velo has a soft spot for modern Italian-made frames."
David’s Creamsicle Vicious Cycles SS Cruiser
“David has a special relationship with Carl Schlemowitz, the owner of Vicious. You might even call them good friends. He knew Carl from when he lived in New York and has a ‘grip’ of bikes from Carl down in the Mellow Velo archives. It’s not often that you see a Vicious in the Western United States, so I was surprised to find a basement full of them when I first toured Mellow Velo back in December of last year."
