"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.”

“I am really enjoying the Marosticana that Officina Battaglin built for me: beauty, grace, responsiveness, and speed in one package.

I didn’t originally purchase the Bassanese as a replacement for my custom titanium bike, but I just loved riding the Battaglin so much my other bike has been relegated to the status of second…

“Just a quick note to thank you (and your team) for all your help with the bike. A great frame is not a ‘product’ it’s a ‘process’ and that’s something the big name brands seem to have forgotten. Well this process has been easy, fun and very rewarding indeed. Thanks for putting up with all…

“Hi Alex, as agreed, I will write some reviews on the Power+ frame or better said the complete bike. Today, I want to give you my first impressions… First of all some information on the review and the conclusions I am drawing: I got the bike 10 days ago and rode it for about 260…

“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…
