"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!!

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.…

“My idea to have a custom bike build began with a planned biking trip to Italy. I wanted a traditional lugged steel frame, with all new Campy components. I researched many builders focusing on quality, cost, and flexibility to have the bike finished when I arrived in Italy. Considering that specific criteria, there was no…

“Like the classic road bike made from Columbus SL, it was really smooth and comfortable to ride the Marosticana at the middle-speed range.”

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…
