"The ride is very smooth and fast, and the look is amazing"

My dream bike is finally here, everything I wanted: steel frame, electronic shifters and hydraulic disk brakes my Officina Battaglin Power+ Disc has it all.

Sleek lines, classic look with all the newest technology under 8 kilos may seem hard to accomplish.

Buying a bicycle online, without seeing it or trying it may not seem the right thing at first but after I emailed and then phoned with Alessandro I was at ease.

A few basic measurements of your body together with the measurements of your current bike will help decide the size of your frame.

Alessandro’s expertise has helped me decide on the finishing kit, his patience answering all my questions and willingness to work with me and giving me several options within my budget was second to none.

There was no pressure to get more expensive components, even though I have been riding Dura Ace for a number of years now, you mentioned that Ultegra Di2 is a wonderful option and a great value with a very small weight penalty.

After I had a few rides on the new bike I had the proof that I made the right choice going with the steel frame made by a company with great tradition and success in this business.

The ride is very smooth and fast, and the look is amazing.

Grazie, Alessandro, well done.

Hi Alex, First of all I am happy to share my experiences with my Power Plus Disc bicycle. It has been a few months since I received it and I wanted to have some “saddle time” with the bike to give my impressions. I have now ridden ~ 750 miles on it. Impressions: I love…

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.
