I stopped in at a local shop this week during lunch thinking it might be the one that had a touring bike listed on the local CL recently, but it wasn't them. I wandered over by the consignment bikes and saw this Tommaso, really clean and nice looking. I only got one pic, non-drive side, not full frame, cell phone shot, so sorry about that.
Any guesses on what year or model it might be? How do these Tommaso's ride? Where do they fit into the Italian steel steed heirarchy (doesn't really matter to me, more just curiosity)? It did look really nice. This one could concievably (sp?) bump the Colnago out of my basement, asking price is around the same for both, thinking about it some, probably no chance that it will happen, so posting this just to perpetuate the day dream a while longer. It did look really nice though.
I will post the only pic of the Tomasso that I have, and I will also post a pic of my Colnago for you to compare it to. Feel free to give me your opinions, should be interesting to hear what others think.
Edit to add: The Tommaso had a 6-speed freewheel on back, not quite a corncob but not far from one, my Colnago has an 8-speed cassette. Both would work fit-wise. Not sure if the Tommaso had original paint though since it looked way too clean and perfect.
