Classic Road Model
The Strada model is reminiscent of early Stelbel frames, and made with the same care and attention to detail that has been applied to all Stelbel frames throughout history. The Strada model was introduced in the early 80s, and still today boasts all the features that make it the longest-running model in the Stelbel product range.
Constructed with standard 25.4 and 28.6mm Columbus Niobium SL series tubing, and featuring the iconic Stelbel fork, the Strada model imbues classic cycling. The fork crown, made in-house, is produced using tubing with different diameters and thickness’ selected to ensure a resistant and long-lasting fork and providing a high-quality ride that is typical of Stelbel bicycles. The fork has traditional ITA threading for a 1” headset.
Scrupulously following Stelio Belletti’s instructions, not only were the mechanical characteristics replicable, the aesthetics of this particular model were also carefully developed to reflect the iconic Strada model.
Built for the true enthusiast like it was back in the day, the Strada model boasts a classic look with unparalleled modern performance providing riders with exemplary manageability that sets it apart from the competition. This attention to detail and high-performance is thanks to the TIG welding technique used to construct our frames, a technique which has always been a trademark of Stelbel production.
Great care has not only gone into the performance characteristics of the frame, but into the overall look as well. The pantographs on the steerer tube recall the most classic Stelbel pantographs, while the iconic “S” on the fork crown mimics the style of forks produced by Stelbel between 1982 and 1987. Even the chrome and decals have been specially developed to reflect the historical model; with the fork ends, dropouts and chain-stay all chromed like they were in the past, and a special set of water slide decals produced just for this model based on original . All chrome details can be customised upon request.
