The new Tommaso Monza gets a new look and new energy. The updated Tiagra shifters come with the new optical gear display for easy shifting execution and hand comfort. This means you can see what gear you are in while accessing the controls for braking and shifting without removing your hands from the handlebars. The San Marco saddle has more padding on the saddle's pressure points to aid with comfort. The FSA Tempo compact is ideal for cyclist of all levels. 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 Monza’s foundation is a corrosion-free proprietary 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 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 Monza has a carbon fork to absorb the high-frequency buzz from the road. This means more miles of comfort and better handling.
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 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 seven 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 San Marco Ponza Power 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 aluminum frame and carbon fork will be great company for many, many miles.
There are plenty of aluminum bikes on the market. Most manufacturers 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, jersey and most of all the desire for adventure.
