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.
He started to market his frames under the second brand name Thomas for some years because he thought the name was catchier for people who did not speak Italian. When he realised that this was not necessary at all, Thomas bikes disappeared again and are now a bit of a rarity.
Our Thomas bike resembles in many ways the classic bike designs of the late 1960s. And it is equipped with the very best parts available back then. Campagnolo Super Record with the 1st gen. derailleur is simply iconic. It is on par with the remaining parts like Cinelli cockpit and saddle and Nisi rims. Actually, the seatpost has been pantographed by Tommasini.
The beautiful 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.
