"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.”

In seeking out a new road bike frame, my principal requirements were that it be new, Italian-made, of lugged steel Columbus SL tubing and with painted forks but a chromed fork crown. It was a great pleasure to discover—within minutes of starting my internet search—the Marosticana, a frame which not only precisely fit my needs…

“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…
