Information on a bike

Is there anywhere I can find information on this bike I purchased...etc... The year, how many made etc? It is a Tommaso TRC400. Beautiful bike...I cannot even post pictures yet as I would love to show it off. It has hideous pedals and seat though. I searched on here, but nothing about that specific model.

Only thing I can suggest is seeing what pops up on Google.

PROMO DESCRIPTION

Tommaso has raised the bar on racing bike performance with the 2006 TRC-400. The Tommaso designed double butted aluminum semi-compact frame with Carbon Seatstays is a high-end feature rare in this price range. The frame has both comfort and stiffness inherent in its well thought-out carbon and aluminum design.

The Campagnolo Mirage and Xenon derailleurs work hand-in-hand with the Campagnolo Mirage ErgoPower Brake Lever and Shifters to slickly shift the gears. Additionally, the attention to detail is apparent on TRC 400 where Tommaso hand picked the Campagnolo cassette and FSA Gossamer triple crankset.This is the race-proven 27 gear performance you need for the longest hills and fastest training rides.

https://tommasobikes.com/ the company as it currently stands.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommaso_bikes wiki enrty for Tommaso bikes.

Not what you would call a massed produced bike (due to the size of the company that supplied them) but not really high end either. Visible welds and bonded carbon fibre seatstays. Functional if not pretty. I always have concerns about bonded (glued) alloy and carbon frame structures, from a longevity point of view...

I usually look on Google, it is the easier way to go, no need to sign up for anything just type and search, you get plenty of results in most cases unless something particularly rare.

Tommasso is from what I have seen in modern times a rather low cost online brand that you can get on Amazon, nothing of quality but it looks kind of like a road bike. However going back through the history it looks like before they got sold to an investment group in 2013 they imported some higher quality stuff but I haven't seen much of it in the wild aside from the new stuff from Amazon.

Your bike has Campy on it it is on the lower end of Campy but potentially more decent than the lower end of Shimano. It also looks to be from before the investment group so likely a much higher quality bike.
