Company Description

Leadvelo Bicicasa is an “all-bikes, all-people” bike shop in Leadville, Colorado. Everyone is welcome. Every bike is welcome.

Se habla: road, gravel, cyclotouring, fixed gear, bikepacking, enduro, XC, CX, BMX, e-bike, track, L’Eroica/retro, randonneur, rinko, klunker, endurance, singlespeed, cargo bikes, IGH, NJS, folding bikes, fat bikes — and of course Español.

The shop is owned and operated by me, Rafael Millan-Garcia, a.k.a. Rafa the Hispanic Mechanic, a.k.a. Rafael “Cletero” (bike guy).

The name “Bicicasa” (pronounced bee-see-casa) comes from my childhood, growing up in Mexico City. My dad used to take me to this avenue with a long strip of bike shops, mostly family-owned, with names like “Bicicasa Gonzalez” and “Bicicasa Rodriguez.” We called it going to the “bicicasas.”

The name is a nod to my heritage, and it’s also my approach to opening a bike shop: I want it to feel like a family; I want it to feel like home. Mi bicicasa es su casa.
