After World War II, Stelio Belletti joined his father in his workshop in the Ortica district of Milan. The mechanical workshop specialized in the construction of frames and other metal tubing structures. During the 1950s and 1960s, the Belletti Workshop collaborated significantly with important aeronaticaul and motorcycle companies and was one of the first companies in Italy to own and operate with a TIG welding machine.
Stelio Belletti has always been a huge cycling fan and as a boy was part of local amateur cycling team. Since the early 1970s, his experience as a welder fabricating motorcycle frames and aircraft fuselages pushed him to begin experimenting with the production of bicycle frames, combining steel tubing with TIG welding which at the time was a new technique in the bicycle industry. Encouraged by his father and by the results he had obtained, in the spring of 1973 he decided to found the Stelbel brand allowing him to distinguish the production of racing bicycle frames.
The Integrale model was introduced in the early/mid 70s, and still today boasts all the features that make it the longest-running model in the Stelbel product range. It 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 constructed frames, a technique which has always been a trademark of Stelbel production.
