I'm a dude, but I'm still going to say it "I love Alan the owner of Velomech". He is the complete professional bicycle mechanic. I'm a pretty darn good basic bike repair person myself, but knowing how incredible Alan's work and prices are I just gladly take my mountain bikes to Velomech. The work and overall care is exceptional. Many of my friends use Alan at Velomech and never has anyone complained about anything. A great bike shop!

If you just want your bike "fixed" this may not be the place for you. Alan cares more about your bike than you do and carry's the produt and provides the service to back up his reputation

Customer Service

Awesome, excellent, detail oriented, You are the only customer whne you walk in or call him. Goes above and beyond what you would expect someone to provide. Plus Alan know's his product's and is a rider/racer himself. To some extent it is a boutique shop that caters to everyones needs

The shop is clean and organized. You can tell when you walk in the front door that there is an attention to detail with high end bikes hanging on the walls and a spotless work area.

Customer Service

Alan listens to what you want done to your bike or what you are trying to order and asks questions about anything he might not be clear on. He also offers recommendations based on his history with the various parts and products.

This is a high end service bike shop. If you want it done the way you would do it yourself (if you knew how) this is the shop for you.

We've got a lot of good bike shops in the treasure valley. From shops catering to the green belt rider to hard core racer, we have them all. But after a while, you realize they all carry basically the same stuff - it gets a little boring. And chances are that if you buy a bike from one of these shops, someone else will have the same one... that's when you realize your bike isn't as cool as you thought.
And then there's Velomech. Velomech takes it up a couple of notches. Want something different and original? Want something super light that looks bad a"**? Don't care too much about weight but want something with a specific performance? Concerned about cost and still want something cool? Don't care about cost and really want the best? Want some custom wheels built by the best wheel builder in the treasure valley? Looking for new and different ideas to jazz up your current ride? Go to Velomech.

Customer Service

Customer service is unbeatable. This guy is a top pro mechanic. He is his own boss - it's just Alan. If you go in just a few times, he'll know you by name. He'll ask you lots of questions and offer great ideas. He always knows the latest and greatest, and is anxious to get parts in to show off. Go in and check it out.
He's also into promoting the small "mom and pop" companies that are trying to get their names out there. But, only if their parts and the real deal.

Did I mention the wheel building thing? Get a custom built wheelset from Alan and you'll be satisfied for the life of the wheel. Also, I hate the "snob" aspect of some bike shops. This is not the feel at Velomech.
He usually has at least 5-10 really nice bikes on the wall. He doesn't have a huge selection of parts in inventory, but you can go in, sit on the couch, and check out all the cool catalogs he has (careful not to drool). I think he even has a few beers in the fridge, but don't tell him I said that.

Velomech is a true high-end shop. Alan really knows his stuff down there and is great to work with. This shop understands the wants/needs of experienced cyclists and tailors to them very well.

Customer Service

In a word, the customer service is great. They are happy to recommend options for parts you want and also come up with very unique ideas that most other shops won't. They will special order parts fast and have very fast turn around on bike builds and maintenance.

The attention to detail for the work done down there is incredible. Velomech built a road race bike with a components spec of my choice. When the bike was done, it was obvious that it was built by a professional. There wasn't even an extra 1/4 inch of cable housing anywhere. Everything was super clean and tight.
