"Thanks Alex and Giovanni for bringing this dream come to live"

“I have been on the look for a while to find the right frame that would match my Campagnolo 50th anniversary group.

When Officina Battaglin released the first pictures of the amazing Arena 1981, I instantly realized that this was the perfect match.

I quickly ordered mine and with the guidance of Giovanni have build to my specs to create this absolutely stunning bike.

Thanks Alex and Giovanni for bringing this dream come to live

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

Dear Alex, Ciao. Grazie mille. Please, on my behalf, thank your dad for designing such a tremendous frame for me. And thank the team for building such a unique color scheme for me. It is so beautiful. Bellissimo! I was originally skeptical about switching to a steel bike that is 1kg heavier than my Colnago…

“WOW !!!!!!!!! Even better than I was expecting Alex. Totally stunning. I’ve owned a lot of bicycle frames since 1981 and this is, without doubt, the most beautiful. Inside the bottom bracket shell you can feel that the tube mitres are just spot on. The attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship are just sublime.…

Hello Alex, When cycling in Salzburg Salzkammergut, I ride my dream bike from Officina Battaglin. Whether I climb the mountains or descend the hills, I feel that this Portofino was made for me. Long trips over 150 km are the best with my Battaglin. It makes me happy and satisfied… And it definitely draws attention! Thank you…

“The performance of vibration absorption worked well, and it was very comfortable to ride on the Marosticana. I felt very good steering performance when cornering. I could easily draw a beautiful round-shape on the corner with this bike.”

“I love the bike. It’s way different, in that it is steel, but it’s super comfy and loves to roll!!!” Photo credits: Morgan Segal Photography www.morgansegal.com Build credits: Zealot Cycleworks https://www.zealotcycleworks.com/
