Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"The frame is smooth yet stiff, comfortable yet also fast and with such stunning looks"
“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 most enjoyment.
It gave me great pleasure when Officina Battaglin announced the `Collezione Speciale` frame, a handmade steel lugged frameset with a classic look.
Beautiful with the stunning `Chromovelato` paint finish and superb chrome details. It has all the style of the past, but also the quality of today.
To pay tribute to the era of Giovanni Battaglin, Roche and Visentini, only pieces from Campagnolo C-Record would be right.
To make the complete build special, unique `Battaglin pantographing` would make the bike unique, something the frame deserved.
The frame rides beautiful with the Columbus SL tubes and superb quality of the finish – smooth yet stiff, comfortable yet also fast and with such stunning looks, stylish details and classy paintwork.
A beauty that is so pleasing to see.
I enjoy the pleasure of riding this bike: a hard day in the hills when you come home exhausted but happy, a ride with my friends, admiring glances and compliments, or riding on the white roads of L`Eroica – `Collezione Speciale` – A frame for all occasions –
Thank you Giovanni Battaglin and all at `Officina Battaglin` for putting a smile on my face.”
