    Tommaso Imola

    I was looking on Craigslist, and someone was advertising this Tommaso Imola as a great hybrid/commuter bike. I looked online, but couldn't find much information about the bike. My main question is: How much is this bike worth? Is the $250 asking price reasonable?

    Here's the link to the ad: http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/bik/3518626578.html

    Since it's been converted from a drop bar configuration, makes you wonder what else has been changed over? Possibly a case where someone bought a donor bike for the parts and then is flipping it with the older parts?

    OP- without knowing the details of the spec list, it's going to be hard to give you a valuation.

    It could be a alright bike to ride for the price though I don't like the color and if you cant do it yourself be prepared to send it to a bike shop for a tuneup and be sure it's the right size for you, it looks to big for the original owner.

    61cm is also a very tall frame size. I'm 6' tall and generally ride around 56cm, maybe 58cm.

    thats probably not the original crankset, its a 4 bolt mountain style crank. looks like an Alivio derailleur, too. hard to tell more from the pictures.

    note thats probably the Imola regular, not the carbon fork model.

    IF you're real long legged, and it fits you well, its probably a fine town bike, assuming everything works well.
