Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"First ride on the Portofino was so comfortable"
“It all begin with an article on the “Bike Rumour” website.
The Cromovelato finish really attracted my attention, so I checked out the Officina Battaglin website to get more information.
I filled out their enquiry form, expecting to receive a brochure with photos and a price list. Instead, I received a phone call from Alex Battaglin!
He was personally following up on my enquiry, and was very helpful explaining the whole process of supplying a frame made to my specifications.
After some discussion with my wife, I decided to commission a frameset. I completed a detailed measurements form and Giovanni Battaglin designed a frame to suit my measurements.
I approved the frame design, and was kept informed throughout the entire build process.
And then came the hardest decision of all, what colour should the frame be? I finally decided to go with the red and am so happy that I did!
Once the frame arrived, I built it up with Campagnolo Record 12 speed, Campagnolo Bora 35s and Deda finishing kit.
First ride was 80kms and was so comfortable, soaking up the bumps and gliding over the variable road surfaces encountered on the country roads of Australia.
The geometry is responsive without being too aggressive, and is a pleasure to ride.
Don’t know why I waited so long to get a custom hand-built frame! I highly recommend Officina Battaglin and Alex Battaglin for their excellent customer focus, attention to detail and their awesome custom-built bikes.”
