About Mellow Velo!

Elegance, style, history, and quality are some of the words we choose to describe ourselves and our work.

Mellow Velo is an independent bicycle dealer in the heart of downtown Santa Fe and has been operating in Santa Fe since 2005. We are located at the foot of the Santa Fe National Forest (just a 20 minute pedal to the Dale Ball trails), and moments from the Santa Fe Plaza. We are surrounded by numerous historic places and Mellow Velo is an excellent jumping off point to go explore Santa Fe!


We take pride in offering a number of premium and entry level bikes for sale. Every bike we choose to carry is of the highest quality and we have bikes to suit even the most demanding clients. We always have an excellent selection of bikes pre-assembled on the floor, but if you're looking for something more special we can source and spec most any bike to meet your needs. We are also one of the only bike shops in New Mexico that offers handmade Italian and American frames from historic frame manufacturers.

We proudly offer the finest bicycles in the industry from Santa Cruz, Orbea, BMC, Pivot, Ibis, Salsa, Bianchi, Moots, Cinelli, Tommasini to name a few. We have a wide selection of pedal assist E-Bikes in every different shape and style as well. Another facet of our business we take immense pride in is our custom specced bikes made to customer needs. We work with our clients each step of the way to ensure that every bike that leaves our shop fits properly, works exactly as designed, and that you have all the information you need to enjoy your new bike!


Our service department is known throughout the southwest as being one of the shops with the highest level of quality. We ensure that every bike that lands on our stand is treated with the utmost attention to detail and serviced exactly to your expectations. If we encounter an issue that we didn’t anticipate, we will always reach out to you and verify that you are ok with the service. We are a full service shop and can fix nearly any issue in a timely manner. We also offer our services for vintage bikes or other rare heritage bikes you may have.

Aside from our world class bike sales and service department, we also offer premium bike rentals. We can accommodate almost any need whether you need a bike just for the afternoon or want to get your whole family riding for a week. We provide premium road bikes, premium mountain bikes, or even e-bikes if you want a little more assistance. We are all avid bike enthusiasts and can provide info relating to current trail conditions and also the best places to go pedaling. 


Whether riding in the high country, or having adventures on bike paths and cycle ways, choosing the right bike can be a challenge. Handlebar shape and material, the saddle's height, the contour of a grip or the tread of a tire can be critical to the pleasure and safety of your bike. We LOVE nice bicycles - but we're not snobs. We are happy to help you fix an old vintage bike or the most modern bicycle available.

Give us a call or better yet come down to the shop. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have whether they are about a bike service, new bike for a loved one, or you simply want to chat about anything cycle related!


Reach us at (505) 982-8986,, or come by the shop at 132 E. Marcy St. in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico.
