"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.

“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).

“Hi Alex, I just want to say thank you for taking care of me during the order process. I received the frameset and was finally able to build it up. I’ve been riding it for a few weeks now. Here are my impressions. The bike looks amazing. Thank you for working with me on the…

After about 1500 kms of riding my new Battaglin, here are my impressions. This is the finest steel bike I have ridden and considering I have owned dozens of steel bikes, this is a remarkable achievement. However, when I compare it to carbon fibre, it only lacks by being a few hundred grammes more in…

“Alex, Just a quick note to let you know about how my Power+ is coming along. For background, I’m a recent convert to cycling having played rugby and raced motorcycles for the last 20 years. Almost all my riding is between 30-70 miles with 3,000-4,000’ of climbing. I’m not fast, can’t climb or TT, don’t…
