NICOLAI BIKES stands for frame buildingn 100% made in Germany. NICOLAI focuses on craftmanship, excellant welding quality and with the love for the little details some of the best bike frames in the world are made in the town of Mehle (Lower Saxony).

All-4-one? Of course!
The versatility of the application areas offered by a single NICOLAI frame platform should be pointed out. Originally designed as a MTB hardtail, the Argon frame – completed with the appropriate parts – also cuts a fine figure as a bikepacking or urban bike. Our gallery provides plenty of inspiration here!

” I believe that our customers recognize this „realness“ of our products and therefore go for a Nicolai bike. The fact that all of our bicycle frames down to the smallest parts are manufactured inside our factory is very important to us. This is not a religion, it is important because we can rapidly transfer the results of our riding tests into the new bikes and adjust products for our customers. True to the motto „100 % made in Germany „, we can ensure that all the components meet our high standards.”– Kalle Nicolai, Geschäftsführer.
