"The Power+ is super silent and super smooth"
“After the first rides on my Power+ Disc, here are my first impressions.
The bike is super silent and super smooth.
It doesn’t feel as fast as my carbon racer, but when I look at the averages, it comes pretty close.
The biggest difference is the stability though.
I think part of it comes from the geometry of the bike, it’s quite long, and part of it from the wider handlebar you suggested.
Most fun is riding out of the saddle, hands in the drops.
Holland is flat as a pancake of course, but on every bridge or dyke I do a little sprint in the drops. Just because it feels great.
I was a little afraid cornering could be an issue because of its length, but it really isn’t. Great how it handles.
It’s my first steel performance bike.
It was really fun to have the discussions with you on the right sizing, and getting the photos of the actual welding of the frame.
Even though I could see ‘16, wilfried’ on the freshly cut chainstay.
Email wasn’t the best way to reach out for you, but when I called you, you had all the time in the world for me.
I think you’re right when you say that a phone call is better then a thousand emails.
As mentioned, I liked your insights on bike size, handlebar width, disc size, tires…
I think the bike looks amazing: colors are great, and the result of the fillet brazing is amazing.
With a SRAM 22 groupset and carbon Across A-wheels (great value for money) I managed to keep the weight just under 8 kilos.
Not bad for a steel bike with disc brakes and 28mm tubeless tires.
I’m pretty sure I will enjoy this bike for thousands of miles. Not sure if I will reach a million though.”

“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…
“Like the classic road bike made from Columbus SL, it was really smooth and comfortable to ride the Marosticana at the middle-speed range.”
