Officina Battaglin San Luca Neo Retro Steel Road Bike
- Manufacturer: Officina Battaglin
- Size: 53 cm
After a 20-year break, a racer who achieved the Giro-Vuelta double is now back to brazing steel frames, just like he used to do before aluminium and carbon became the de facto standard for bicycle production. Working with the original process, the dusted off machinery and old craftsmen, Giovanni Battaglin is reviving his legacy.
In an era in which mass production has been dominating the market for decades, Giovanni Battaglin and his son Alessandro are against the tide. "Officina" is the Italian word for "workshop". It's the place where Battaglin's craftsmen have spent most of their life perfecting the way they work with steel. They have boosted their skills making bikes on a daily basis, trying to find out the right formulas, the secrets crucial to the great ride quality cyclists seek. That's why every step of the frame building process, from tube trimming to painting, still takes place in an "Officina" in in Marostica, Vicenza, Northern Italy.
So proud and convinced are they in the quality of their frames, that Officina Battaglin gives them a "One Million Miles Warranty" which covers any defects in materials and workmanship and is also transferable to further owners, no matter how many.
The "San Luca" model is an exclusive and elegant piece made of legendary Columbus SL tubes and precisely cast lugs. A chromed fork completes the elegant appearance of this slim, strong and comfortable piece of craftsmanship.
What could be the appropriate parts for such an Italian beauty? Well, we thought the same. A complete Campagnolo groupset has been attached. It is a new Campagnolo 10-Speed Veloce. A groupset which supplies you with the power and functionality a modern groupset should offer. But at the same time its Aluminium elements remember us of the classic, beautiful builds that the racing bikes of the 20th century have been.
A perfect combination of elegance, performance and style.
