"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.”

“To My Friend Alex: In December of 2018, I went on a group ride and saw my friend, Allen McKay, on this stunning bike.   I rode up to him and told him that’s the third different bike I’ve seen you on in the last 3 rides together and that is the most beautiful of the…

“WOW !!!!!!!!! Even better than I was expecting Alex. Totally stunning. I’ve owned a lot of bicycle frames since 1981 and this is, without doubt, the most beautiful. Inside the bottom bracket shell you can feel that the tube mitres are just spot on. The attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship are just sublime.…

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…
