"The attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship are just sublime"

“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.

The detailed touches – the pantographed lugs, headtube, brake bridge, crown, bb shell AND the top tube plaque – are very special and THAT finish. WOW!

I can’t wait to get it built up and head out riding.

Thank you Alex and thank you Giovanni.

You know a lot of people around the world will have bought bicycles today. I would bet that none are as pleased as I am and I would bet double that no one else will have bought something as special as I have.

Steel – in a world of generic plastic frames – it’s the future.”

“Dear Alex: Thank you so much for my Portofino. You and the team at Officina Battaglin did an amazing job. I am so impressed with the Portofino and the experience I have had with you and your father, Giovanni. From the moment you called me, 24 hours after I filled out my email inquiry, until…

“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…

“To My Friend Alex: In December of 2018, I went on a group ride and saw my friend, Allen McKay, on this stunning bike.   I rode up to him and told him that’s the third different bike I’ve seen you on in the last 3 rides together and that is the most beautiful of the…
