Custom Bike Appointments

Purchasing a custom bike can be a complicated process. Awesome, yes. But still overwhelming at times. There are simply so many things to decide upon. When buying a car you decide upon the model, color, and maybe 4 or 5 trim levels. A custom bicycle, on the other hand, has an almost infinite number of variables.

Just building up a set of wheels to go with your bike will require you to decide upon the hub, rim, spokes, spoke lacing, spoke count, spoke nipple type, tire style and size. It can get rather absurd.

And that’s not what this process should be about. A custom bike is a reward. It’s something motivating, exciting and unique. An expression of your love of cycling.

Since our opening in 2008 we’ve done a brisk business in custom bikes. We’re lucky enough to have very good sales people, a very good service staff, and thanks to our partnership with Pedal Hard Training Center, very good bike fitters. This perfect storm makes Mellow Johnny’s one of the best places to go if you’re considering a custom build. Over the past 7 years we’ve refined and built upon the process to make it what it is today.


To ensure that we provide the highest level of service to our customers, we are now happy to offer appointments for anyone looking to purchase a custom or semi-custom bike. Email us at, or use the button below to request your appointment and we’ll have a qualified staff member ready and waiting. Meet in our café and have a drink on us, while we talk bikes. We’ll discuss riding style, help steer you through the myriad of options and guide you through the process. This staff member will be your point of contact. He or she will organize bike fits, check on order status, pull together price quotes and make sure the process runs smoothly from start to finish.

It’s an idea we’ve bounced around for a while, and one that we’re excited to finally offer. Of course, the appointments are free of charge and a bike purchase isn’t required. We believe in the brands we carry. Moots, Seven, Cielo, and any Project 1 Trek are works of art. We think that as you come to understand the work that goes into these bikes and the quality of our staff we’ll build a relationship to keep your business.

These appointments last approx. an hour and are intended to be a consultation for anyone buying a bike in which paint color and/or frame geometry will be chosen. If you’re looking to purchase a bike and swap bars or saddle, swing by anytime and we can quickly get you taken care of.
