"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.

“I have tried to choose modern components that function well so that the bike has a classic look but modern performance (Campagnolo Athena 11s., Cinelli stem, Chris King headset with sealed bearings). At last I have had some time to take the Marosticana out for her maiden ride. And a very enjoyable ride it was…

“Received my Officina Battaglin No.37 of 65 today, words can’t describe just how good this bike looks. The craftsmanship in the frame is perfect and the finish of the polished metal through the red is like looking at a Ferrari Dino in the Italian sunshine. Never seen a bike like it before, simply beautiful.”
