This is the Stelbel Nina, a versatile frame that is as capable on the gravel as it is on the muddy cyclocross park. We couldn’t resist getting some shots during a visit to Stelbel in Bergamo, Italy.

Versatility

Versatility comes in many forms on the Nina. It has the option to use either electric or mechanical shifting as well as adjustable dropouts. This allows it to be ridden as a fully geared or single speed machine.

This particular example can take tires up to 40mm on 700c wheels. A combination that would be more than capable on the toughest terrain. If you are eager for bigger, the guys at Stelbel love a special request!

Columbus Steel

Stelbel have a close relationship with the steel producers Columbus. So, it stands to reason that Nina was welded from Columbus tubes. The frame is made up of a careful selection of double and triple butted Zona, Life and Spirit tubes. However, these have some custom modifications especially for Stelbel.

Stelio

The tubes are Tig welded like all other frames in their range, following on from a technique that founder Stelio Belletti pioneered.

The Stelbel Nina is available with a range of optional features as well as customisable geometry that make it possible to construct the adventure bike of your dreams.
