Steel caliper road bike with thin, old-fashioned tubeset

The Bice Bicycles Tellina model was born during the  MO.GA.ST. race which takes riders up and over the  Moritrolo, Gavia and Stelvio pass.  As you can imagine, it was developed to be both fast on climbs without forgoing comfort or style, ensuring you can take in the mountain views while enjoying your ice cream.

With 1 1/8 headtube and Columbus BENT max chainstays, this frameset is the perfect balance between thin and old-fashioned tubeset at the front and cross stiffness on rear triangle. Obviously with brazed on seatpost clamps and front derailleur clamp, caliper brakes and QR dropouts!

The Tellina can mount tires up to 28mm at the front and 30 at the rear allowing you to explore rougher climbs and descends. There is the option of mounting Falz fork from Dario Pegoretti for bent fork blades lovers.

Each Tellina frame is bespoke and tailor-made based on your specific on body measurements and custom-made to your specifications and intended use, and consequently is entirely adaptable.
