"The Power+ is fast, stable, comfortable"

“Hi Alex,

Hope you’re doing well. Herewith my first impression (testimonial) on the Power+. This is not yet a video testimonial. Working on that one as well.

After several rides in my neighbourhood, yesterday I had (what I call) the maiden ride on the Power+ in a hilly part of the Netherlands (only 100 meters above sea level with the longest climb just over 1 km and a steepest gradient of 10%).

Besides a flat tire, the bike handles brilliantly.

It is fast, stable, comfortable and the combination of the components and the frame makes a brilliant bike.

The bike is fitted with a Sram Red eTap groupset. A modern steel frame deserves state of the art components I think.

Carbon rims, steerer, stem and seat post bring down the weight under 8 kilos. This is exactly what I was looking for in a bike.

Thanks to the bike fit and the work done by you and your father the frame is a perfect fit for me.

Although I’m not in perfect form, my rides were instantly faster on the Battaglin compared to my other bike.

Looking forward visiting the Officina in Italy.

Thanks for all the support and conversations we had in preparation of the actual production of this very special bike to me.”

“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…

“Dear Alex, I just want to thank you from my heart for the Power Plus frameset you recently built for me. It has exceeded my highest expectations!

“I received the frame yesterday afternoon. There are no words to describe how wonderful the frame looks. It is a work of art. I am so very pleased with it. Thank you so much. I cannot wait to get it built and ride it. I have started the assembly process late last night. Again thank…

“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…
