The Tommaso Volo not only hit the sweet spot in carbon road bikes- it steps on the gas and goes right through it! With the highly touted road rider and press favorite SRAM Force components on board, this purchase is a no-brainer. Velo News, cyclingnews.com, Road Bike Action and many other cycling sources have said that the SRAM Force is so good people don’t need to consider its more expensive (Tour de France winning) SRAM Red. To complete the package the Tommaso Volo sports a carbon fork with carbon steer, FSA compact 34/50 AL6061/T6 Gossamer crank with MegaEXO oversized cartridge bearings, Tommaso Race Series saddle and speedy Mavic Aksium wheels. How does Tommaso make bikes at such great deals? Easy, they don’t expect customers to pay for the marketing budget of a pro tour team or over-hyped advertisements. At Tommaso Bicycles the employees do all the real world testing 365 days a year in house…well, on the road, the mountains, the trail and the path.
At Giantnerd we have online bike purchasing dialed. No more smug attitudes at the local bike shop because you don’t feel the need to sell a kidney to buy a bike. Like they say at Tommaso: We want you to “Over Play” not “Over Pay!”
The Volo starts with a light and responsive 950 gram (56cm) Tommaso HCT monocoque 12k carbon weave racing frame. The HCT monocoque frame and carbon fork with carbon steer have been engineered to float up mountains and carve down the other side.
Get more stability and power into your ride with the 1-1/8” to 1.5” tapered headtube. With a larger bearing and broader front end the Tommaso HCT carbon frame provides a stable platform for sprinting, climbing and descending. Bigger is better and you will quickly feel the performance advantage of our new frame.
The SRAM Force Double Tap, “ZeroLoss” technology shifters are paired with the SRAM Force Exact Actuation rear derailleur and a precise 3mm shift increments and SRAM Force front derailleur. The sure feeling SRAM shifter/brake controls allow for sure handed shifting and braking without removing your hands from the handlebars. The SRAM Force Double Tap controls also incorporate a reach adjust feature for customization to any hand size. The Tommaso Race saddle has more padding on the saddle’s pressure points to aid with comfort. The FSA Gossamer compact crank with external bottom bracket bearings is ideal for cyclist looking to get to the next level. The 50/34 chainring combination on the crank is a slightly smaller gear for those of us that aren’t racing the Tour de France this year. It enables the user to climb with less stress on the knees and joints while cruising quickly along the flats and descents. The compact crank makes for less complex shifting than a triple and is lighter.
The Tommaso Frame
The Tommaso Volo’ s foundation is a state of the art HCT 12k weave carbon frame that shares from the same design concepts found on the top of the line Tommaso bikes. The frame weighs in at a feathery 950 grams (2.09 lbs.) for a 56cm frame. Tommaso uses a compact geometry and detailed tubing lengths per frame size. This ensures that the rider gets the lightest, strongest and best performing and fitting frame for the dollar. The compact design and geometry place the rider in the optimum position for steady handling and comfort. The Volo has a carbon fork with carbon steer tube to absorb he high-frequency buzz from the road. This means more miles of comfort and better handling. The frame has a 68mm English threaded bottom bracket and accepts a 31.6 seat post. The head tube is designed to accept IS-2 standard threadless 1-1/8th bearings.
Get more stability and power out of your ride with Tommaso’s HCT monocoque 12k carbon frame with tapered head tube technology. This newly designed Tommaso frame and full carbon fork energizes your ride with high performance technology. The 1-1/8” to 1.5” tapered head tube supports a larger bottom headset bearing and widens the stance of the front end to a stout 1.5” over the industry standard 1-1/8” heat tube. Don’t get left behind-bigger is better and you will quickly feel the performance advantage of the new Tommaso frame. The larger format frame allows the rider to push through the corners harder with more confidence and is a rock solid launch pad for those town sign sprints. Ride the same technology as the Tour de France riders without having to take the whole month of July off to race. Step up to the new Tommaso frame with the Volo and get a jump on the competition!
The big names in cycling, such as Giant, Specialized, Trek, Masi, and Felt to name a few, rely on compact geometry to best serve the needs of the customer. Compact geometry has a number of advantages for the rider. First of all, the phrase “compact geometry” is signifying that the top tube (the bar you stand over when not in motion) is sloped downward from the front to the rear of the bike. This enables the rider to get on and off the bike easily. Traditional frame geometry has a top tube that is parallel to the ground and harder to get a leg over. By sloping the top tube we get into the second benefit of the compact frame: With less material used in producing the frame a lighter frame can be produced. Third, the more material sitting lower on the bike the better the bike will handle. By lowering the center of gravity the bike wants to descend, corner and sprint better.
The Tommaso Fit
Sizing a compact bike is no different, or more difficult, than any other style of bike. By reviewing the size chart you will see a measurement called the “Eff Top Tube”, also known as the Effective Top Tube Measurement. This is what the top tube would measure if it was parallel to the ground. It is an imaginary line the runs from the center of the head tube to the center of the seat tube if the seat tube was extended like a traditional frame. The size chart also lists suggested heights for the different frame sizes. This is far more helpful in sizing a bike than standing over the top tube and pulling up on the handlebars (which tells you nothing about the fit of a bike). Tommaso offers 5 sizes to accommodate riders large and small. It will be easy to find a fit for all of our customers.
The stem can also be flipped and adjusted for a lower back-friendly position to a more streamline position in minutes. The lower top tube keeps the center of gravity low and the makes for an easy approach to getting on the bike. This Tommaso bike was designed with the user’s needs and comfort as the #1 priority.
The Tommaso Feel
Tommaso spent a lot of time on choosing what makes a bike enjoyable to ride. Tommaso upgraded the saddle to the lightweight and sleek TRS Racing saddle for added comfort. The handlebar wrap was chosen for its comfort and durability. The compact gearing is perfect for all of us wanting to ride the open road no matter if it goes up, down or flat. The lightweight Tommaso carbon frame and full carbon fork will be great company for many, many miles. If you want to set a personal best on a century or compete in road racing this bike is the bike for you.
There are plenty of carbon bikes on the market. Most manufacturer’s use them to fill price points while focusing on the $6,000.00 dream machines that are given to the pro’s (at the consumer’s expense) or bikes that find their way into only a few garages. At Giantnerd our philosophy is simple: Ride, just ride. We want everyone to enjoy the experience and feel good about their bike. We realize that there are other things you will need while cycling and we keep prices low so you can get them all. What will you need? A helmet, spare tube kit, water bottles and cages, shorts, jerseys and most of all the desire for adventure.
