"It makes a huge difference to know that skilled people are taking the time to listen and build something special"

“Just a quick note to thank you (and your team) for all your help with the bike.

“I picked up my frame on Wednesday 11th. I’m absolutely delighted with the same – the standard of build & finish is simply superb – as indeed was the way it was packed for shipment – Many many thanks. I’m now still chasing New Old Stock Campag equipment – my fall back is to take…

“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…
