"I ride the Portofino for hours almost every day: it’s amazing, very comfortable and responsive"

“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.

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

“I have followed the career of Giovanni Battaglin for many years when I was a teenager – the climax was the fabulous `Double victories` in 1981 it was so special, one of the nicest memories. The races, bikes, and riders of this time, I feel were the `Golden Age of Cycling` I remember with the…
