    Battaglin. But what type? What year?

    Hello!
    Cant find a similar one on google.com, so, maybe some one can teach me.
    Is Columbus SLX, Shimano600, Modolo stem and handlebar.

    '89 was single pivot brakes for Shimano 600. Dual pivots didn't come out until '91 or '92 I think. So if the components are all original it puts the bike in the '91-93 range as anything beyond that would have STI shifters.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    Buy it. I had a Battaglin made from Columbus Cromor tubing and it provided an excellent ride, I would have loved to have one in SLX.

    I have a TSD Cromor model. Great rider!!! An SLX model would be the icing on the cake.

    The one pictured might be just prior to the TSD years. Check the underside of the downtube for a TSD sticker.

    Hey jet - do you find the your Battaglin and your Ciocc ride almost identically?

    They are both very tight and agile but the Battaglin is a bit more sturdy, probably because it is heavier. I think that if I had a nice component group on the Battaglin, it would be pretty much the same ride.
