Online Bike Sales

We are one of the few businesses in the United States that actually distribute and sell Guerciotti and Ciocc. These unique Italian bikes are known for their cyclocross prowess and also looking as elegant as possible. In Santa Fe, they are also known for being amazing ultra-distance platforms that can easily go over 200mi in a single ride all while being comfortable and efficient. We aim to sell these as frames only and also special completes with the highest specs out there. We can almost guarantee you’ll never see these bikes being sold anywhere else West of the Atlantic Ocean.
We have included pre-orders for select Orbea’s also. These preorders must be picked up at the Mellow Velo shop in Santa Fe, NM. This is a fantastic way to guarantee you have one of the hottest Spanish bikes before anyone else has them.
"In 1840 our forebearers, the Orbea Brothers, opened a small workshop in the heart of Basque Country in Eibar. With relentless work and ambition, the workshop grew to become the first factory in a city eventually dedicated to industry.
Over time, the factory became a leader amongst it's peers, pioneering many innovative products and manufacturing procedures. Since that time we've maintained the innovative spirit of the Eibar factory, constantly adapting our products for our customers. When guns were no longer the business of Orbea, we used our innate knowledge of steel tubing to build bicycles of all types, from the premium to the most basic.
The cycle of progress never ends with our team of passionate individuals and champions who constantly innovate and adapt to the changing marketplace and rider needs. the best of Orbea is always in our work, and because of it we are always seeking new ways to improve and make the best bicycles on Earth."
"Guerciotti is an historical company in the cycling business, who is getting ready to celebrate the 50 years anniversary. A compelling story started on 1964 when Italo, noted and expert cyclocross rider, decided with his brother Paolo to open a small show of 20 square meters for the selling and maintenance of bicycles in Via Petrella 4 in Milan.
It is always Italo to transmit the cycling passion to Paolo who in the 1961 begins to ride revealing immediately competitive and successful and than to dedicate his activity exclusively in the cyclocross, riding the world championships in Saccolongo on 1979.
In the meantime the shops becomes too small for the many customers. So Paolo Guerciotti decides to expand the shop opening a new one in corso Buenos Aires. In the 1975, thanks to the commercial success the two brothers decide to expand it again in Via Tamagno."
"For fans of cycling and road bike, Ciocc is a brand that recalls the beginnings of tradition of the artisan Italian frame. In 1980, the brand was bought by Luigi Conti, a building contractor from Bergamo with the unbridled passion for cycling.
The current manufacturing process it fully manual and it follows the simple techniques of the past: after being cut and shaped with special tools tubes are prepared and assembled with a template giving birth to the frame.
Ciocc was able to adapt his craftsman philosophy to the changes that have affected the world of cycling since the early 90s.
Once assembled the frame we go to a stage where the craftsmanship gives its added value. We are talking about the “wrapping” of the frame, which allows you to “weld” the tubes and make the frame efficient and safe. The yarn of carbon fiber based on its density, determines stiffness, comfort and strength."
