"I have now ridden 750 miles on it. Impressions: I love it!"

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 it!

I too, like others who have had experiences with you, greatly appreciated the personal approach to the sizing and selection of the bike components.

I had wanted a steel-framed bike for a long time and my first introduction to Battaglin Cycles was the article in Bicycling Magazine about the Power Plus.

When the advertisement came for the Power Plus Disc I did not hesitate and put in my registration.

To receive a direct, personal phone call from you regarding the bike made a very positive impression upon me and is a testament to the approach and caring of Battaglin to your bicycles….and a wonderful legacy from your father!

We discussed my riding style and needs and you made recommendations for the build… I was honestly surprised that you confirmed Sram eTap hydraulic was indeed a fine selection, noting that we were fitting Campagnolo Bora One DB 35’s!

Heresy!:)

I am glad that you did the complete build and all components work in harmony.

The bike has received many, many compliments… (one of the local mechanics calls this the “magazine bike” since these are bikes we can only see in the magazines!… And another cyclist made a U-turn to check it out when I had it mounted on my rack at a recent training ride!).

I will send pictures of the bike when the wildflowers bloom here in Texas…..and it is a struggle to keep this bike looking beautiful and to still ride it often!!

My dream bike is finally here, everything I wanted: steel frame, electronic shifters and hydraulic disk brakes my Officina Battaglin Power+ Disc has it all.

“Hi Alex, as agreed, I will write some reviews on the Power+ frame or better said the complete bike. Today, I want to give you my first impressions… First of all some information on the review and the conclusions I am drawing: I got the bike 10 days ago and rode it for about 260…

“I first heard of Giovanni Battaglin in the early ’80s when I got into bicycle racing. Being from Italian descent, I have always been a fan of the Italian cycling greats.  Having owned Bianchi and Pinarello bikes, I always longed for a Battaglin, especially knowing the company’s pedigree and the success they achieved during the…

In seeking out a new road bike frame, my principal requirements were that it be new, Italian-made, of lugged steel Columbus SL tubing and with painted forks but a chromed fork crown. It was a great pleasure to discover—within minutes of starting my internet search—the Marosticana, a frame which not only precisely fit my needs…
