"6.85kg! I rode the Power+ many times and I love how smooth and fast it is!"

Hello Alex!!

Come stai? I want to once again thank you for sending the bike to home in Italy. I had an accident and injured my lower back while I was in the Netherlands. I hope to recover soon.

I got the bike shipped to my home in the Netherlands and had it built there.

A few days ago I returned to Tashkent and I finally have the bike as I had imagined:
  • Battaglin Power Plus Frame and Fork
  • Shimano Dura-Ace Groupset
  • Deda Superleggera Handlebar, Stem and Seatpost.
  • Pro lightweight carbon saddle
  • And finally Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer limited edition Weiss wheelset.
6.85kg!!
I rode the bike many times and I love how smooth and fast it is. I wanted a light steel bike because I also want to ride it in events. And want to travel with it around the world. This came out perfectly for my needs!!
Next bike will certainly be a Portofino. During my next visit, I plan to visit you and your factory.
Grazie mille di nuovo!! Allego un foto delle bicicletta.
