Giovanni Battaglin was not only a great stylist as a rider but also an innovative producer of absolute top class racing frames. In fact, a great margin of the legendary Italian steel frames from the 1980s and 1990s had been produced in his manufacture in Bassano del Grappa, many of which for other famous companies.
So to no surprise, this Battaglin NOS Pursuit Frameset is perfectly made.
The classic time trial geometry with a downward sloping top tube and a small fork for an 26" frontwheel are very nicely executed, indeed. The cables run inside of the frame to give a little extra of aerodynamic advantage.
If you are looking for a classic TT-frame or just have a soft spot for craftsmanship - this frame is a great catch.
