Tommaso Cycling (formerly known as GiantNerd.com) is a long-running online bicycle brand and retailer with a showroom based in Denver, Colorado. It producers its own in-house brand of road bikes and bicycle gear called Tommaso. Tommaso Cycling ships free of charge to the continental US and keeps prices low by selling direct to consumers.
Tommaso’s Bike Range Overview
Tommaso’s selection of road bikes includes the flagship Tommaso Imola, the mid-range Forcella, and the top-range Monza. Although they don’t stock any mountain bikes, the brand 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, Tommaso sells a wide range of cycling shoes, helmets, clothing, parts, and accessories, mainly made by Tommaso
Tommaso Road Bikes
Tommaso’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 Tommaso 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.
Tommaso’s website stocks a mish-mash collection of accessories including lights, pumps, pannier bags, saddles, and bottle cages. Some notable items include Lezyne Femto lights, Topeak Aero Wedge saddlebag, and Cateye Padrone wireless cycle computer.
It also lists a wide range of spare parts, from Schwalbe and Michelin tires to Tommaso handlebars and wheelsets. The selection isn’t very broad but there is a bit of everything. The apparel section hosts a range of Tommaso and Pearl Izumi-branded jerseys, helmets, and gloves.
