We’ve all enjoyed the black and white cycling photos of the good old days of leather helmets, wool jerseys and sturdy steel frames. From Merckx to Coppi we’ve been caught up in the vision of a man tearing apart the peloton, head down and staring through his eyelids. These may have been some of the best years in cycling history and Tommaso wanted to capture that spirit with the Tommaso Classic fixed gear bike.
Just one glance at the classic root beer metallic brown paint and panel styled decals will take you back to simpler times and simpler bikes. Simplicity is the genius behind the fixed gear bike. No shift or brake cables to adjust. No derailleur decisions to compromise your ride. The Classic is a simple soulful frame with a few necessary parts to make up the complete machine.
The handlebars are the classic drop shape giving you multiple positions to comfortably rest your hands. An old school quill stem holds the bar in place with classic style. Tommaso jazzed up the wheels with high-flange hubs for those that “get it” and won’t accept less. Match those polished high-flange hubs with blue rims and a polished 46t crank and the bike really comes together. The deep root beer metallic paint with orange and blue accents will get you noticed every time you ride this bike. The crème saddle and bar wrap let everyone know you don’t settle for black because it’s what all the other bike companies do. Be an original-be a classic-ride a Tommaso!
The product team approached the Tommaso Classic with the mindset that everyone needs to own this bike. Like all good things in life the Tommaso Classic will draw you in and never let you go. The folks at Tommaso updated the frame and chose the components with this goal in mind. We at Giantnerd offer this bike at a price that makes owning a Tommaso Classic possible for everyone.
The Tommaso Frame
At the heart of the Tommaso Classic is a strong steel frame with a straightforward geometry. This makes for a ride that is buttery smooth and fast. The frame is sure handling and the fork has been designed to guide you along without rebuttal. The Classic’s lugged steel fork is designed for confident comfort as well as the rigors of the road. The fork and frame are drilled to accommodate a road caliper brake.
The Tommaso Fit
The Tommaso Classic is designed with a standard bike geometry. This means the top tube is parallel to the ground. As with most classic steel frames the seat tube and top tube are almost the same size. This is also called the classic “square geometry” and is very easy to fit. We have provided sizing and suggested rider heights for every model of Tommaso bike. Just click the “Size Chart” link to review the information.
The Tommaso Feel
Not all track/fixed gear bikes will see the track. Tommaso has provided a great bike for training on the road and working on the perfect pedal stroke. Riding a fixed bike will shed light on poor pedaling performance within 30 revolutions. Bad pedaling performance is called “pedaling squares.” This means the rider is not supplying even and fluid strokes to the pedals. On a fixed gear bike those “dead areas” of the stroke will be felt by the rider when the gear is fixed. The fixed gear will force the rider to pedal with fluid and constant power all the way around the stroke. The best riders on the road will have the best pedal stroke. Consider the Tommaso Classic an inexpensive cycling coach. Technical pedaling data aside, the Classic is just plain fun to ride. Of course we would be lying if we didn’t mention our spirited trips to the micro-brews in town.
The Tommaso Classic comes with a 16-tooth fixed cog installed on a flip-flop hub with a single-speed 16-tooth freewheel. This is for those that want to coast or have an addiction to pedaling backwards approaching a stop light. The Classic will arrive to you with a 16-tooth fixed gear on the drive-side. We propose giving the fixie feel a try. It just might change your life.
