The Nemo TIG is Cinelli’s latest Made in Italy high-performance steel road frame.
It looks and rides the way in which the legendary Supercorsa – the world’s longest running production steel frame – might have looked had it been designed for racing today rather than in the 1950s.
How does it ride?
A bike really is the sum of it’s parts. This is a fairly obvious statement but riding the Nemo TIG has very much brought this sentiment home to me.
The Nemo TIG frame has a neutral feel to the way it rides, meaning you can jump on it straight away and feel confident in its abilities. The tapered head tube and oversized down tube provide ample stiffness indicative of most modern steel frames nowadays. Stamp on the pedals and it goes. In short, it’s a thoroughly pleasant frame to ride.
The DA groupset fitted to the frame really shines, the shifting is so precise. Additionally, the Vision deep section wheels roll well and they really enhance the depth of the frame characteristics.
The frame is well crafted, the welds look neat and this heightens the feeling that this is a quality product. Add to the fact that the frame is made in stock or custom sizes and available in over 60 colour options, this makes the Nemo TIG a compelling choice for those looking for a modern steel frame.
