On April 2nd and 3rd, we will open the doors to our NICOLAI manufacturing and assembly centre. Here, we invite you to celebrate with us our 26th anniversary! Join us from 10am in Mehle, Lower Saxony. Come along to see who, how and where our iconic frames and manufactured and the coolest bikes built. Learn more about our latest models, technology and our European production: welding, milling, turning, painting and assembling. Peer over the shoulders of our colleagues, in to the machines and learn all the techniques and tricks that go in to producing our frames.

In addition, we will be premiering the SATURN 16 model that our customers have been so eagerly awaiting. Of course we have this newcomer and also all current bikes on site with which you spin around on the adjacent trails.

With delicious food and cold drinks, plenty of time to chat, and of course, the traditional factory tours with legendary Vincent Stoyhe or Kalle Nicolai himself.

Our new showroom presents a fantastic selection of our bikes, travel through bike technology from 1996 to 2022, everything we learned over 26 years. While you‘re here, take a look at our “Full Metal Book” and merchandise, along with a sale on test bikes and frames.

COVID-19 Regulations:

Our 2022 in-house exhibition is a 3G event. We are looking forward to vaccinated, recovered, as well as tested visitors.

Please remember to bring or obtain valid proof in a timely manner. Vaccinated and recovered people do not need a current test. A PCR test should not be older than 48 hours and a rapid test not older than 24 hours.

The city of Elze offers HERE information and addresses to test centers in our area. Of course, test certificates from other centers/counties are also valid. Children and adolescents under the age of 18 are exempt from the obligation to provide a test certificate. Unfortunately, we cannot grant you entry without a valid, negative test certificate. Please refrain from performing quick tests at the entrance.

Have your vaccination, recovery, or negative test proof ready at the entrance. For contact tracking, we recommend checking in via the Luca App, but you can also sign in directly at the entrance.

Masks are mandatory in the indoor area. Therefore, bring an FFP2 mask with you. Children under 6 years don’t have to wear a mask and for children up to 14 years a simple mouth-nose covering (e.g. cloth mask) is sufficient. Outside you are welcome to take off your masks.
