Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"The Marosticana is somehow both stiff as well as comfortable"
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 but also a frame which happens to be produced by a company with the stature and heritage of Battaglin.
The Marosticana frame—mine now built up with a Campagnolo Veloce gruppo, Ambrosio wheels, and Cinelli stem & handlebars—is a work of art that combines the best of classic and modern style.
And the bicycle’s performance is, frankly, more than I could possibly ask for.
It is somehow both stiff as well as comfortable. It is stable yet manoeuvrable; never have I felt safer and more assured while cornering downhill at speed.
In addition, the Marosticana genuinely seems to help this rider while pedalling uphill!
There is unmistakable genius involved in the design of this frame — the choice of materials and the angles and dimensions used to marry the SL tubing—and it is a pleasure to have this genius revealed to oneself on every ride.
To me, riding the Marosticana is to partake in the legacy of the likes of Visentini and Roche as well as, of course, Signor Battaglin; it is also to ride on what I believe to be one of the best bicycle frames made today.
