Marosticana is the classic Officina Battaglin steel frame which comes with a chrome-plated finish. It bears the name of the road that crosses the verdant plains at the base of the Venetian foothills and runs through the medieval town of Marostica, where the adventure of Giovanni Battaglin both as a professional rider and an entrepreneur began.
The refined chrome-plated lugs enhance the beautiful retro-inspired design, providing Marosticana a timeless appeal. The classic Italian road geometry with a horizontal top tube reminds of the unforgettable races in the past that made cycling one of the most popular sports in the world. The superb look dresses the benefits of a smooth ride and great handling given only by handcrafted steel, brought to life by our master artisans.
Full chrome-plated finish.
Columbus SL tubeset.
Traditional head tube 1".
Internally routed rear brake cable.
English bottom bracket.
Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Marosticana:
“I have tried to choose modern components that function well so that the bike has a classic look but modern performance (Campagnolo Athena 11s., Cinelli stem, Chris King headset with sealed bearings).
At last I have had some time to take the Marosticana out for her maiden ride. And a very enjoyable ride it was too.
My first impression is that of smoothness. The cycle lane that leads from my street in Scheveningen up the coast towards Katwijk is made up of bricks laid in a herringbone pattern which generally cause some vibration through the handlebars. Not with the Marosticana however which smoothes everything out beautifully. Even the speed bumps at junctions are less intrusive as she just sails over them with ease. The ride overall was most enjoyable and I can’t wait to ride her again when I get home from Kazakhstan in April.

“The performance of vibration absorption worked well, and it was very comfortable to ride on this bike. I felt very good steering performance on cornering. I could easily draw a beautiful round-shape on the corner with this bike.
— Raita Suzuki, Steel Road Bike Book, Japan
“Like the classic road bike made from Columbus SL, it was really smooth and comfortable to ride at the middle speed range.
