Dear cyclist friend,
If you only look for bikes that are different, you’re in the right place.
Because in a world where everyone who's got a credit card can become a bike producer, a different bike means a bike that has a story to tell.
And here at Officina Battaglin each new bike we make has a good one.
This time, it's a story that starts more than 45 years ago, in a small village in Northern Italy.
“One day, together with a friend of mine, we went to see a cycling race near San Luca, the small village where we lived.
As we followed the race, which was taking place on a challenging climb, we said to each other ‘well, we can ride just as fast as these riders!’
That winter we enrolled in a team, the Velo Junior Nove, which would be my first team ever.
And after 3 years, we both turned pro”
This story tells the start of Giovanni Battaglin’s legendary cycling career.
After 11 years from that race in San Luca, he won two Grand-Tours in 46 days - a record he still holds - on the monstrous climbs of the Giro and the Vuelta. Then, a few months later, he launched his eponymous bike company and went on to make some of the most successful steel bikes of the 80s.
And this story can go on when you decide to add the chapter of how Giovanni Battaglin designed a custom steel frame for YOU.

An artisanal steel frame with a clean and essential modern look
Columbus Spirit tubing with custom specs
The San Luca frame is built from the oversized Columbus Spirit that makes for a contemporary look. Thanks to a 40-year collaboration, Columbus customized the Spirit tubeset to Giovanni’s specifications. The result was triple-butted Omnicrom tubing that offers significant advantages in terms of weight and strength.
TIG welded junctions
The San Luca junctions are TIG welded by experienced Italian frame builders. This specific welding technique creates strong bonds between the steel tubes, ensuring the perfect balance between steel’s unrivalled comfort and the reactivity of the frame.
Carbon monocoque fork
The carbon monocoque fork adds strength and rigidity to the steering, providing reliable and predictable handling that will inspire you to pedal fast in any condition.

You don't think a handmade product can last that long?
Here are the top 4 reasons your frame will hit (and will pass) one million miles:
1- If you’re after a true Italian handmade steel road frame , you’re more than a little concerned about how and where your steel frame will be built. Every single step of our production process takes place in small workshop in Italy. Our craftsmen will be the only people who will manufacture the frames, following a process we know everything about.
2 - We have perfected the techniques over decades. As steel was the best material to make frames, from 1981 to 1996 building more than 250 steel frames was what we did on a daily basis.
3 - Our craftsmen boosted their skills by working for some of the most distintive riders of cycling history such as Giovanni Battaglin and all the Carrera Team’s champions ( Visentini, Roche , Bontempi, Chiappucci , Zimmermann and many others).
4 - There are so many of Battaglin steel frames made in the 80s and the 90s still on the road that we feel confident in saying that the “ second generation “ will be as durable as the first one.
Here's what our customers said about how special were their custom-made steel frames...
