Vintage Tommasini steel frames and bicycles didn’t chase trends. While some manufacturers lured their customers to the next “revolution” in the industry, Tommasini was a cornerstone of Italian cycling heritage.
He created road bikes for road cyclists.
Beginning in 1948, Irio Tommasini began his craft and refined it under legendary frame builder Giuseppe Pelà.
A former racer himself, Tommasini understood what was needed to get the most out of the material. This focus allowed him to hone his skills as an artisan, and ignore the buzz of industry trends. His unique approach quickly earned him the respect of other racers looking for expertly made machines.
Growing the production in the 1970s allowed his work to reach an audience abroad who realized the exceptional quality of his studio's work.
Our Thomas bike resembles in many ways the classic bike designs of the late 1960s with the long drawn seat stay caps, the meticulously filed lugs and the modest colour.
The pantographed and sculpted fork crown is a reminder of the attention to detail given to each piece of this bicycle. Together with the bottom bracket it also is a statement that the heritage of Pelà was not forgotten.
