The dexterous staff of Mello Velo Bicycle Shop crafts delectable café fare and espresso-based libations with their hands while their feet fit bikes with comprehensive tune-ups. Patrons perk up after long nights of googling photos of Donald Sutherland with creamy cappuccinos ($3/12 oz.) and rich mochas ($4/16 oz.), which they can pair with locally sourced snacks such as a smoked gouda, pear, and bacon panini ($6.95) or a couscous salad ($4.99). During the complete bike tune-up, a cycle specialist adjusts the front and rear brakes and correctly positions front and rear derailleurs. Front and rear wheels undergo a truing treatment to straighten them out and ensure they cannot be turned into Communist spies before the ride wrangler adjusts hubs, headsets, and bottom brackets and lubricates chains and cables. The deluxe bike tune-up takes the complete treatment a step further, adding on a thorough cleaning of cranks, chains, cassettes, and derailleurs.
