    My New Tommasini CX Bike

    I cannot wait to get it all dirty - I know, I know white is not ideal for CX but hey it looks really nice for a little while

    That is one gorgeous bike!!!!! Nice to know that they make a cross bike.

    I see that it has the Campagnolo V-brake with the integrated shifters. I always wondered if this worked together, now I know......

    Thanks - actually several of our frame models are available in CX geometry - you just have to ask. - I'll let you know how it rides once I've had some time on it. Can't wait!!!

    Is the OP also the builder?
    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    Sweet! Those wheels are bombproof. I had a set once and was quite surprised how tough they were for the price.

    I've just gotta say, that is one pricey steel 'cross bike. Don't get me wrong, I drool over the beauty of the Tommasini frames, but I don't know if I could bring myself to take it out on a CX course.

    Yes - I run the family office for our brand - Tommasini. But I did have my buddy Sky at VeloCult make some adjustments for me.

    Well since I only ride our brand (Tommasini) I did not want to beat up one of our really expensive ones like the velocista.

    I've seen ads in magazines that seemed to put tommasini's US headquarters in the valley somewhere, at a particular bike shop I think. Is that correct? If so, where? Cuz I'd like to go drool over some bikes some day.

    -also- are you going to race this season? http://www.socalcross.org/

    Our US headquarters are in San Diego and we have a private office - not open to the public. But we do have dealers across the US and they typically have frames in stock but most frames are made to order.

    yeah - it's a new sport for me so I'm really looking forward to learning and having some fun. I have already contacted Dot at socalcross about clinics in San Diego - hope to hear back soon!

    Oh, I was thinking of torelli. They're in the valley apparently. I think they import from taiwan.

    yeah - completely different company. We still make everything in our factory in Italy - by hand.

    What tires were you running? I know I will need to get some knobbier ones for muddy conditions. These will work for drier trails and using the bike for commuting - but please send suggestions on tires if you have them.
