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

"I can ride the Portofino for hours and hours, and it keeps on being comfortable. No more sore back!"
Gran Turismo… That is the term I use to describe the most incredible bike I have ever owned, my Officina Battaglin Portofino Disc. I fondly remember first seeing the Officina Battaglin Portofino when it was introduced, in rim-brake version, with cromovelato lacquer in Italian colours. It immediately struck me as a piece of cycling art, a gorgeous…
“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 rode my Portofino in the the world’s toughest amateur race: it’s the most comfortable bike I’ve ever ridden"
I’m visiting the Battaglin workshop after racing the Haute Route. The Haute Route is a 7-day event famous for being the toughest and the highest amateur race. This time we were 450 riders, and it was just amazing. One of the toughest that we’ve ever done. It was 800 kilometers and almost 22000 meters of climbing..…
“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…
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.…
Hello Alex, Giovanni and all the good folks at Battaglin Bikes, My pursuit for a new bike began 4 years ago when an unfortunate collision left my beloved Look 585 in pieces. Once I’d healed, I picked up my 20-year-old steel Serotta and began to think of my next ride. I knew I wanted steel…
