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
Sundays closed (for now)
