About John

Hello, my name is John Ellis. I own and am the sole employee of Helios Bicycle Service. I am a Colorado Springs native and a third generation Old North End resident and have been a professional bike mechanic for over 20 years. I was also the lead instructor at the world renowned Barnett Bicycle Institute for many years. At BBI, I trained thousands of bicycle-mechanic students from around the world and I studied the current designs and evolutions of bicycle equipment in order to create service procedures for the school. I look forward to talking to you about your bike and your cycling desires; regardless if you are a commuter or an Olympian. It would be an honor to earn your trust and to help you achieve your bicycling goals. I will work on your bike as if it were my own and I guarantee your satisfaction
