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 6061 SLA aluminum compact 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.
