The Superleggera is Tommaso’s premium carbon bike with the new Shimano Dura-Ace 7900! Now lets keep a little secret...Here’s the best part, it’s the ultimate riding machine and it’s priced at almost half of the competition. Yes, some companies charge thousands of dollars more for a carbon Dura-Ace bike…does it make you wonder why? Somebody has to pay for the pro’s team bus and salary for 30+ riders and staff, but that person shouldn’t be you.
All the great Shimano components you could possibly want on a Tommaso at a price only Giantnerd can offer. It is the complete package with a Tommas HCT 12K Monocoque carbon frame, full carbon fork, Gossamer Pro 53/39 aluminum crank, Mavic Aksium wheels, Tommaso Race saddle and Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 components. 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 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 the say at Tommaso: We want you to “Over Play” not “Over Pay!”
The Superleggera starts with a light and responsive race proven carbon frame. The Tommaso super light carbon Monocoque frame and carbon fork with carbon steer have been engineered to handle quickly, 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 new Tommaso 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 Shimano 7900 Dura-Ace shifters are paired with the Shimano 7900 Dura-Ace rear derailleur and Shimano 7900 Dura-Ace front derailleur. The new style (hidden cables-and better feel) Shimano Dura-Ace STI controls allow for sure handed shifting and braking without removing your hands from the handlebars. The Tommaso Race saddle has more padding on the saddle’s pressure points to aid with comfort. The racy-sleek saddle was designed for those who ride long hours in the saddle, not just talk about them. The FSA Gossamer Pro 53/39 standard crank with external bottom bracket bearings is ideal for cyclists looking to get to the next level. All of this great technology is resting on wheels from Shimano, to complete the Shimano package.
The Tommaso Frame
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 Superleggera 2.0 and get a jump on the competition!
All 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 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. 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 carbon fork will be great company for many, many miles. 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.
