The Rodano is the result of a long development process. This frame is expertly designed and constructed with high-performance Columbus steel tubing and welded using Stelbel’s favoured TIG method. The Rodano is a fully customizable performance road frame built for those who love long rides and spending hours in the saddle.

We believe that steel is still the best material when it comes to making truly special, tailored bike frames. The Rodano is an expression of that belief. It’s a road bike designed to meet and exceed the highest expectations of today’s rider and provide a level of performance and comfort that is second to none, even on the longest ride.
During the design process, we developed a number of details that differentiate the Rodano from every other frame on the market. The muscular, oval chain stays, for example, and our new dropouts were created to achieve an optimal balance between rigidity and comfort.
Another exclusive detail can be found in the head-tube, which has been adapted to provide internal housing for 1”⅛ headset bearings. Our internal cable routing is also distinctive – especially the rear derailleur cable, which passes through the chain-stay.
The steel tubing used stays true to the Stelbel tradition but at the same time takes full advantage of the latest technological developments. It has been custom-designed for us by Columbus and is double or triple butted. The fork supplied is fully carbon and 100% made in Italy by WR Compositi.
As with all Stelbel frames, the Rodano is embellished with engravings on the head tube, bottom bracket and rear dropouts. Our modern frames are custom built upon order, meaning the geometry is adaptable to the needs of each client.
