GiantNerd is a long-running online bicycle retailer with a showroom based in Denver, Colorado. It producers its own in-house brand of road bikes and bicycle gear called Tommaso. GiantNerd ships free of charge to the continental US and keeps prices low by selling direct to consumers.
GiantNerd’s Main Focus
GiantNerd’s selection of road bikes includes the flagship Tommaso Imola, the mid-range Forcella, and top-range Monza. Although they don’t stock any mountain bikes, GiantNerd has several ‘adventure’ bikes designed for gravel and trail riding. It also sells two hybrid Tommaso bikes, the Forza and Sorrento, and a line of folding bikes from the Oyama brand.
In addition to its bicycles, GiantNerd sells a wide range of cycling shoes, helmets, clothing, parts, and accessories, mainly made by Tommaso
- The cheapest bike available from the GiantNerd online store is the folding single-speed Oyama Skyline 1 for $299.95!
- The most affordable hybrid is the Tommaso Forza Disc with 21-speed Shimano Tourney drivetrain for a very attractive $599.99!
- The cheapest road bike is the popular Tommaso Imola at $749.99, with a 24-speed Shimano Claris groupset. However, gravel riders might prefer the Tommaso Sentiero cyclocross bike with 40c tires and disc brakes for the same price!
Tommaso Road Bikes
Full list of Tommaso road bikes: Tommaso Sorrento / Tommaso Forza Disc / Tommaso Sterrata Disc / Tommaso Monza / Tommaso Illimitate Disc / Tommaso Sentiero Disc / Tommaso Siena Disc
GiantNerd’s flagship Tommaso Imola comes in six sizes (XXS-XL) and three colors: black, orange, and white. It uses the factory standard 6061 aluminum frame and fork that you see on so many mid-range road bikes these days. The frame geometry is designed in-house by GiantNerd engineers and includes a sloping downtube for a powerful but smooth ride.
The Shimano Claris drivetrain and braking system make for a nice and neat complete groupset, which is a big plus. Yes, disc brakes would be a nice addition but considering the low price, we can’t really complain. The bike is finished off with a WTB saddle, Tommaso 23mm rims, and Kenda K15 700×25 tires.
