"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.

[Testimonial after the assembly, Ed.] “With no pedals, the Portofino’s final weight is 6.85 kg with Lightweight wheels and 6.90 kg with Mavic wheels. We could have made it even lighter by using KCNC brakes (almost 100 gr) and other specific components. But I must say that what we have achieved is absolutely comparable to…

“I received the frame yesterday afternoon. There are no words to describe how wonderful the frame looks. It is a work of art. I am so very pleased with it. Thank you so much. I cannot wait to get it built and ride it. I have started the assembly process late last night. Again thank…

“Alex, First wanted to say thanks for all your help and helping me select the Power Plus Frame. It has been a long journey but finally got the frame I wanted. I have been riding steel frame bikes for over 25 years and have been looking for a new/replacement frame for the last four years.…
