"With my Portofino I’m simply going faster with more ease!"

Hello Alex! 

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.

It’s lovely.

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.

“I have tried to choose modern components that function well so that the bike has a classic look but modern performance (Campagnolo Athena 11s., Cinelli stem, Chris King headset with sealed bearings). At last I have had some time to take the Marosticana out for her maiden ride. And a very enjoyable ride it was…

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.…

“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.…

“The Portofino is amazing, very comfortable and responsive. I ride it for hours, almost everyday. Owning it makes me really proud. My kids’ names engraved on the bike make it really personal for me… And the pink cromovelato color with-all black Italian components is a great combination. I love to start my day with an…

“Alex- My Officina Battaglin Power+ is my fourth steel frame, and first in over 30 years! The first thing that I noticed about the bike when I rode it on the farm roads around the workshop in Marostica was how smooth and quiet it was. I was expecting a jarring and rattling ride when hitting…
