Tommasini Velocista MAX Road Frameset 1990s
While many bicycle builders have been offering different quality ranges to meet the expectations of a wider circle of customers, Irio Tommasini has never done anything alike.
The artisan frame manufacture from Grosseto, Tuscany knows nothing but one category of frames - top class. And what else would you expect from someone who worked together with the giants of frame building Faliero Masi and Giuseppe Pelà?
His expertise and relentless quality-oriented craftsmanship found him fame and fans all around the globe, as did his beautifully executed frames.
This particular Tommasini Velocista dates back to late 1990s and belongs to exactly those legendary bikes built in the Italian factory in Grosseto.
Made of superb Columbus MAX tubing. A tubeset wich was massively oversized and specifically oriented to support areas of stress. And then there are of course the intimidating chainstays, which transferred power like nothing seen before and gave the rider a feeling like riding on rails. The reactivity of this frameset is almost harsh. Our Velocista has tubes TIG welded together, resulting is slightly more supple feeling than the lugged version. And it has to be said that the welds are truly top notch.
The unicrown front fork is made with lightweight Columbus Genius blades.
