"The Power+ EVO: I’ve never seen such a stunning finish. And the bike is so comfortable!"

“6 months later! Here it is. A sneak peek into an absolute work of art from Officina Battaglin. Never seen such a stunning finish. Made to order. Fully custom geometry. Limited to only 40 bikes. The Power+ Evo!”

“Over 20 years on a bike and hundreds of thousands of kilometers… But today, I felt I was hallucinating.

Absolutely stunning work by Officina Battaglin 🇮🇹 and my Dutch maestro @biekbikes 🇳🇱 for putting this piece of art together.”

“The first thing I did after I reached home in Tashkent?

I went about building my bike. And weighed it! 7 kilos for a custom steel bike from Officina Battaglin. With my favorite Lightweight wheels! Can’t wait to ride this tomorrow!! 😍😍😍”

Over the past few weeks, I have ridden this Battaglin more than any other time during the past year.
Nothing I am going to write here is new. All I wanted to say is that this bike is so comfortable to ride. I got the geometry right! And then each time I go over a rough section, the frame absorbs so many road vibrations despite the fact that

1. I am riding one of the stiffest wheels although they are tubulars

2. A complete carbon integrated cockpit and seat post and

3. A carbon fork!

Lastly, it’s fast. Yesterday I averaged 31 despite going thru the city twice.

Hi Alex, First of all I am happy to share my experiences with my Power Plus Disc bicycle. It has been a few months since I received it and I wanted to have some “saddle time” with the bike to give my impressions. I have now ridden ~ 750 miles on it. Impressions: I love…

“To My Friend Alex: In December of 2018, I went on a group ride and saw my friend, Allen McKay, on this stunning bike.   I rode up to him and told him that’s the third different bike I’ve seen you on in the last 3 rides together and that is the most beautiful of the…

After about 1500 kms of riding my new Battaglin, here are my impressions. This is the finest steel bike I have ridden and considering I have owned dozens of steel bikes, this is a remarkable achievement. However, when I compare it to carbon fibre, it only lacks by being a few hundred grammes more in…

“Hello Alessandro from chilly New York!    As beautiful as your online pictures are, they really do injustice to your frames.   Finally seeing my Portofino in person was a surreal experience.  I was simply dumbfounded.  The depth of the chromovelato color, the perfect chrome and clear coat, the lettering that did some typographer proud, even the…

“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.…
