Job Description & Requirements

LeadVelo Bicicasa is a minority-owned, “all-people, all-bikes” bike shop in Leadville, Colorado, seeking a full-time, experienced / advanced mechanic.  Accepting applications now for the 2024 season and starting as soon as possible. Salary is commensurate with experience. Bilingual English / Spanish is a plus. Flexible seasonal or permanent position.  


LeadVelo Bicicasa is an alternative and radical dirtbag enterprise catering to the full spectrum of bicycles and riders. We believe queer is beautiful, racists should be composted, walls are for climbing, and bicycles will save us. We are stoked to help out customers with everything from townies to high end race bikes, and the ideal candidate is excited to work on anything that comes through the door. Knowledge of suspension systems, dropper posts and electronic shifting would be killer. High organizational skills,attention to detail and ability to cope with a fast paced setting during our peak months (roughly May through August) desired. 


We work hard and play hard, and you can too!  Here in our neck of the Colorado Rockies you can ride to the Colorado Trail from the Bicicasa, which is the highest elevation bike shop in North America, and we are within riding distance of hundreds of miles of amazing and uncrowded gravel, and single track. Hiking, rafting and climbing opportunities abound (as well as all disciplines of skiing and the best Fat Biking in the nation should you love it here so much you decide to stay for the winter months). If you want to live in a sunny valley nestled between two mountain ranges and surrounded by the highest peaks in Colorado, please email your resume directly to Rafael at - we look forward to hearing from you. 

About Leadvelo Bicicasa

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.
