"The frame was beautiful, almost a shame to take it on the road"

I have had an appreciation for Italian made bikes, ever since I bought my first one in 1989.

So when I saw the release of the Collezione Speciale I immediately expressed my interest.

My experience dealing with Alex and the rest of the team at Officina Battaglin has been fantastic.

Waiting for the frame to be manufactured gave me the time to consider the build options, there was no doubt that this bike deserved an Italian groupset.

The frame arrived just before Christmas and I wasted no time building it up. Wow!

It was beautiful, almost a shame to take it on the road.

But a bike is meant to be enjoyed and once out there I appreciated it even more.

No carbon bike can ever compare with the feel of a steel frame.

Also, it always gets attention from other riders.

Thank you for keeping the tradition of steel alive.

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

“I picked up my frame on Wednesday 11th. I’m absolutely delighted with the same – the standard of build & finish is simply superb – as indeed was the way it was packed for shipment – Many many thanks. I’m now still chasing New Old Stock Campag equipment – my fall back is to take…
