"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.”

“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…

“Received my Officina Battaglin No.37 of 65 today, words can’t describe just how good this bike looks. The craftsmanship in the frame is perfect and the finish of the polished metal through the red is like looking at a Ferrari Dino in the Italian sunshine. Never seen a bike like it before, simply beautiful.”

“Hello Alessandro from chilly New York!    As beautiful as your online pictures are, they really do injustice to your frames.   Finally seeing my Portofino in person was a surreal experience.  I was simply dumbfounded.  The depth of the chromovelato color, the perfect chrome and clear coat, the lettering that did some typographer proud, even the…

“It all begin with an article on the “Bike Rumour” website.  The Cromovelato finish really attracted my attention, so I checked out the Officina Battaglin website to get more information.   I filled out their enquiry form, expecting to receive a brochure with photos and a price list. Instead, I received a phone call from Alex…

“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…
