"The Marosticana smoothes everything out beautifully"

“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 too.

My first impression is that of smoothness. The cycle lane that leads from my street in Scheveningen up the coast towards Katwijk is made up of bricks laid in a herringbone pattern which generally cause some vibration through the handlebars.

Not with the Marosticana however which smoothes everything out beautifully.

Even the speed bumps at junctions are less intrusive as she just sails over them with ease.

The ride overall was most enjoyable and I can’t wait to ride her again when I get home from Kazakhstan in April.”

“After the first rides on my Power+ Disc, here are my first impressions. The bike is super silent and super smooth. It doesn’t feel as fast as my carbon racer, but when I look at the averages, it comes pretty close. The biggest difference is the stability though. I think part of it comes from…

“Just a quick note to thank you (and your team) for all your help with the bike. A great frame is not a ‘product’ it’s a ‘process’ and that’s something the big name brands seem to have forgotten. Well this process has been easy, fun and very rewarding indeed. Thanks for putting up with all…

“The frame arrived yesterday and it is just beautiful. Can’t wait to build and ride.”

I’ve owned the Officina Battaglin Bassanese for over a year, it’s become my main bike for weekend group rides with friends. I didn’t originally purchase the Bassanese as a replacement for my custom titanium bike, but I just loved riding the Battaglin so much my other bike has been relegated to the status of second…

“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.”
