The 2019 Giro d'Italia starts this weekend, and finishes again in the Verona Area. Officina Battaglin releases a limited edition frame that honours the venue of the greatest day in Giovanni Battaglin's career.
Two years ago, in 2017, Battaglin announced a run of 30 diamond-studded frames commemorating Stephen Roche's 1987 Tour-Giro-World's hat trick. Only one set remains of the materials required for this stunning custom frame.
Alessandro Battaglin's new online guide to the reasons for gravel riding and equipment specification for custom gravel bikes is a personal account that pours years of experience into a useful 18-page read.
Anticipating a market shift toward steel frames, the storied Italian brand is bringing all its frame production back in house, offering custom options, and is renewing its relationship with Columbus. Alessandro Battaglin explains the changes.
