Going to a bike shop should be an experience not just a chore. Whether you are in the market for hipster fixies, the fastest racing bikes, or your kid's first wheels, this is the place to go. While a great selection of bikes is key to any good shop, it is the friendly and eccentric staff (including Cippolini, the shop dog) that make Montano Velo a destination, not just a line on the to-do list. They are also the best wrenches in town. I wouldn't trust my bikes to anyone else (especially myself). When you go, take the time to note the eclectic collection of... well... stuff. From the bloodied jersey and crushed helmet of one of my teammates (don't worry, his broken hip healed fine), to a vintage juke box; a current national championship silver medal (won by another sponsored rider), to a manniquin with a Mexican wrestling mask, there are enough oddities to keep the inquisitive busy for hours. Montano Velo is quickly becoming an epicenter in the quirkiness and character of Oakland.
