"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!!

I quickly ordered mine and with the guidance of Giovanni have build…

“Hi Alex, I just want to say thank you for taking care of me during the order process. I received the frameset and was finally able to build it up. I’ve been riding it for a few weeks now. Here are my impressions. The bike looks amazing. Thank you for working with me on the…

“I’ve ridden a lot of bikes; some top of the line carbon fiber, some custom aluminum or steel. I’ve spent almost a year on my Battaglin Power Plus and what I liked at the very beginning about it holds true over 3,000 miles later: it has that wonderful, classic ride feel you expect out of…

“After the first rides on my Power+ Disc, here are my first impressions. The bike is super silent and super smooth. It doesn’t feel as fast as my carbon racer, but when I look at the averages, it comes pretty close. The biggest difference is the stability though. I think part of it comes from…

“Received my Officina Battaglin No.37 of 65 today, words can’t describe just how good this bike looks. The craftsmanship in the frame is perfect and the finish of the polished metal through the red is like looking at a Ferrari Dino in the Italian sunshine. Never seen a bike like it before, simply beautiful.”

“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.…
