Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"With my Portofino I’m simply going faster with more ease!"
As you can see, the Netherlands is quite flat.
It’s all flat. This is typically Dutch. And in this world, there’s now a new kind of bike.
A bike that is astonishing… That you can’t compare to anything else.
You know it! But do other people do?
It’s the Officina Battaglin Portofino.
I have it now for a few days. This is my second ride, and I’m still astonished by the quality.
The quality of the components you advised…
The quality especially of the driving.
And I don’t know, I told you so, I don’t know what happened…
But it seems to me that there is a motor inside.
I’m simply going faster with more ease!
My heart rate is 10 to 15 points lower at the same speed. Against wind and before the wind.
It’s just incredible. I very much love this bike.
I’ve had many bikes before… My wife says ‘you have had too many’! But this is my absolute beauty.
And it’s not only beautiful… but its ride… It’s amazing.
So everyone who wants to consider a Portofino… If you want me to give them advice, just call… Give them my email… And I will tell them.
By the way, you advised this saddle, the short-nose Selle San Marco.
I used to sit on Fizik Aliante, and that was fine too… But this is better.
There’s nothing I can say about this bike that I don’t like.
And that’s not just because I’ve only had it for a few days… It’s simply because of the quality.
The riding quality and the way it’s made. My friends who have seen it were all astonished.
So, Giovanni, Alex, and everybody at Officina Battaglin…
Thank you very much for making this beautiful bike for me.

“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…
“I have put over 400 kilometers on my Power+ EVO over the past 10 days and could not be more pleased with the performance of the bike. It is a comfortable climber and very stable descender, accelerates with ease and feels smooth on even the roughest sections of the road. The second ride on it…
“I first heard of Giovanni Battaglin in the early ’80s when I got into bicycle racing. Being from Italian descent, I have always been a fan of the Italian cycling greats. Having owned Bianchi and Pinarello bikes, I always longed for a Battaglin, especially knowing the company’s pedigree and the success they achieved during the…

“The frame arrived yesterday and it is just beautiful. Can’t wait to build and ride.”
“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.”
