Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"The Portofino’s final weight is 6.85 kg with Lightweight wheels and 6.90 kg with Mavic wheels"
[Testimonial after the assembly, Ed.]
“With no pedals, the Portofino’s final weight is 6.85 kg with Lightweight wheels and 6.90 kg with Mavic wheels.
We could have made it even lighter by using KCNC brakes (almost 100 gr) and other specific components.
But I must say that what we have achieved is absolutely comparable to carbon frames.
All of this thanks to Juan Antonio Lopez Orellana, former pro racer, my trusted mechanic who helped me make the best choices.”
[Testimonial after the first ride, Ed.]
“Good morning Alex ,
Now I can confirm that my intuitions were right.
It was clear to me that the Portofino was beautiful and unique, but the real nature of this wonderful road bike was probably more difficult to understand.
Yesterday, during my first ride, I felt like I was raised above the ground. Almost a surreal feeling…
The Portofino is definitely racy and surprisingly comfortable.
I also own an XCR bike, however, probably because of the XCR’s increased stiffness, I can’t get the same ride feel…
Not to mention the “plastic bikes”, which can’t be even called bikes… I was a victim too, I was brainwashed and I wasted my time with a product made from carbon, a dead material. It has nothing to do with steel, which is alive.
In the future, I will praise, as soon as I have the chance, the quality of your bicycles.
Now I look forward to riding my Power+ EVO… A different geometry, a different concept, a different result.”
