The Tommaso Imola carbon takes all the features and technology of the standard Tommaso Imola and adds a carbon bladed fork. This will provide a little more comfort as the carbon absorbs more of the high frequency road buzz from the pavement. The sleek black aluminum frame with matching painted black carbon fork is energized by racey graphics for an amazing package that can't be beat. It is our belief that everyone needs to ride a bike. There is a magic moment that takes place once you start pedaling. No matter what kind of day you are having a smile will immediately appear when the pedals start to turn. Riding a bike is pure, fun and beneficial to the rider’s health. That is why the staff at Giantnerd® believes everyone needs to own a bike. Tommaso worked very hard with its factories and designers to get the best bike at the best price for its customers.
The Tommaso Imola is the bicycle for anyone that wants to get started on the cycling journey. The proprietary 6061 Tommaso compact aluminum frame will provide thousands of miles of dependability and enjoyment. The triple chainring up front and a 12x24 8-speed cassette give the rider 24 speeds to choose from. The road triple has been a welcome component for those wanting to get up every hill easily, explore the flats and cruise down the speedy descents. Add that to the hand-friendly, light, aluminum ergo handlebars, Tommaso Racing saddle and Kenda tires and you have a winner!
The Tommaso Frame
Underneath the slick black paint of the Imola is a corrosion-free proprietary Tommaso compact aluminum frame that comes from the same design concepts found on the top of the line Tommaso bikes. Tommaso uses a compact geometry and detailed tubing lengths per frame size. This ensures that the rider gets the lightest, strongest, best performing and best fitting frame for the dollar. The compact design and geometry place the rider in the optimum position for steady handling and comfort.
The stem can 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 as the #1 priority.
Tommaso, and other 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 made. 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 seven sizes to accommodate riders large and small. It will be easy to find a fit for all of our customers.
The Tommaso Feel
The rider’s connection to the bike is a focus at Tommaso. That is why Tommaso designed the TRS-Tommaso Racing Series saddle. Tommaso TRS saddle is designed for all day comfort by adding special foam to the saddle’s pressure points. This combined with specifically chosen bar wrap makes for a comfortable transition from rider to bike.
Added to the mix are SunRace integrated shifter/brake levers. This allows the rider to employ all of the controls without their hands leaving the handlebar. The SunRace shifters, similar to the higher end Shimano style shifters utilize an integrated system with the downshift button alongside the up-shift blade. Like the Shimano system, SunRace are very intuitive and easy to use. The front and rear derailleur both remain Shimano 2300 series.
The Imola also comes with Promax R310 dual-pivot aluminum brake calipers which are paired up with alloy Weinmann XR-18 CNC machined rims offering strong and consistent braking power.
Giantnerd® wants you to get outdoors and enjoy the happiness that only an amazing road bike can deliver. With a price this low on a bike this good the inventory won’t be the only thing going fast.
