"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 Dario, I’m really pleased with how stunning my Marosticana looks and how smooth it rides while still being very responsive with the Lightweight wheels and the Campa Super Record.  It feels even more responsive than my last carbon bikes, and I can ride it 2km/h faster than my Faggin.  It’s like my Maserati Levante…

“Like the classic road bike made from Columbus SL, it was really smooth and comfortable to ride the Marosticana at the middle-speed range.”

“Dear Alex & Dario, I have received the Power+ EVO safe and sound, and I’ve just finished assembling it.  I put on the Ultra WTO 45 with GP5000 continental 25-mm tires, bike computer mount, carbon bottle cage, and Xpedo pedals. Surprisingly it weighs 8.13kg… Which is not bad at all for a steel bike. Wow……

“Hello Alessandro from chilly New York!    As beautiful as your online pictures are, they really do injustice to your frames.   Finally seeing my Portofino in person was a surreal experience.  I was simply dumbfounded.  The depth of the chromovelato color, the perfect chrome and clear coat, the lettering that did some typographer proud, even the…
