Last chance for Battaglin's Roche commemorative frame

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.

Cyclists looking for an exclusive bicycle with a great story have a last chance to obtain Battaglin's Stephen Roche anniversay frame.

The frame is finished in black chrome, giving it a deep lustre. Overall the frame is dazzling in its physical presence, and its crowning detail lies in between the downtube shifters: a small gold badge studded with three diamonds, one for each of Roche's biggest wins.

"We provided materials for 30 of these frames originally and now have just one set remaining," said Alessandro Battaglin.

The frame tubes are Columbus SLX, as Roche used in 1987, and naturally it will be made to measure for the lucky customer.
