Mello Fellos bike shop is opening a store in the former Velo space Saturday

Here’s some great local bike shop news: Mello Fellos (formerly known as Mobile Bike Repair) is opening a location in the Belltown/Denny Triangle space formerly home to Velo.

Mello Fellos/MBR has been operating out of a much smaller space near 9th and Stewart since 2012 while also hosting mobile repair services for bike commuters at major employers like Amazon and Fred Hutch.

“Since the closure of Velo, we’ve boomed,” said Jesse Angelo, who owns Mello Fellos along with Andy Graef. “It just made sense for us to move there. It’s already built as a bike shop.”

The move to the Velo space is a huge step for Mello Fellos. It is six times bigger than their current space and much more prominent. They also plan on revamping the old space and keeping it open, perhaps as a location more focused on rentals and service than as a showroom for new bikes.

Mello Fellos is having a soft opening for the new shop Saturday (Dec. 9). Hours:

Monday – Friday 10-6
Saturday 11-5
Sundays closed (for now)

    Great news, indeed. I don’t work downtown anymore, but I still cycle to or through Belltown frequently to meet with friends, go shopping, etc. The old Velo bike location is right on my route, so it’s very convenient to have a bike shop there.

    This is fantastic. I’ve been using MBR for several years and am so glad that they are subsuming the space where Velo used to be.

    I think Jesse and Andy are top notch. Let me relate one experience. The bearings on my crank failed and I was barely able to ride the the MBR shop. Once there, Jesse (I think) took a look at his stock and said it would take several days to get a replacement bearing or whole crank, don’t remember. Then, after a moment of reflection, he said he had a new bike on the floor with same crank and he was willing to swap it out and use it on my bike, ultimately ordering a new crank for the floor bike. With that idea, I simply waited about an hour and he totally fixed my bike ! How could you ask for more ?
