"I will be the peloton’s highlight for at least 6 months because of this beauty!"

“Dear Alex & Dario,

I have received the Power+ EVO safe and sound, and I’ve just finished assembling it. 

I put on the Ultra WTO 45 with GP5000 continental 25-mm tires, bike computer mount, carbon bottle cage, and Xpedo pedals.

Surprisingly it weighs 8.13kg… Which is not bad at all for a steel bike. Wow… It’s even lighter than my Titanium Moots RSL, with approximately the same specs.

I found this bike to be very quiet. Smooth and comfy. Regardless of the wheelset, the frame reduces and absorbs vibrations quite nicely.

Well done, Alex and Dario.

I believe that by just changing the crank, it would be easy to go below 8kg – 7.8kg is feasible without any major effort.

It’s great to have this Power+ EVO. I will be the peloton’s highlight for at least 6 months because of its beauty!

“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…

In the 1970s, my Father took me to Harry Quinn’s shop in Liverpool. Harry was a renowned frame builder, but what captured me was Campagnolo, and that was the start of my Italian cycling passion. After all these years, I’ve completed the project with my Officina Battaglin Marosticana—the most exquisite, traditional, handbuilt Italian steel frame. I…

“My first encounter with Officina Battaglin was a post by BabaVelo.  Battaglin gave me an experience of a lifetime where I could tailor-make the bike in terms of size and colour.  I made the experience more memorable by actually visiting their facility in Marostica, where I was welcomed by the entire Battaglin Family. I have…
