"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, 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…

“I’ve been riding since I was about three years of age. Until about 17 or 18, I used to race strictly on an amateur level. I went to University and did other things… I didn’t ride a bike seriously for about 20 years. And then, in my mid to late 30s, I rediscovered the passion…

[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…

“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…

“Dear Alex & Dario, I have received the Power+ EVO safe and sound, and I’ve just finished assembling it.  I put on the Ultra WTO 45 with GP5000 continental 25-mm tires, bike computer mount, carbon bottle cage, and Xpedo pedals. Surprisingly it weighs 8.13kg… Which is not bad at all for a steel bike. Wow……

“I started my wonderful journey with Alex and the other people from Officina Battaglin last year. After submitting my email, Alex arranged an interview and outlined the models and the options. I signed up and submitted my measurements, and agreed on the custom-sized frame measurements. A few weeks later, we had another interview with Alex…
