Tommaso Bestia Cyclocross Bike (Advanced Race)
Tommaso Bestia: The new Tommaso Bestia cyclocross bike comes with plenty of testing and thought behind its spec and design. Tommaso's own product team got out and raced, rode and suffered to make this bike and its bigger brother the carbon Tommaso Diavolo. It is a labor of love and Tommaso came up with the goods. The Bestia attacks the trail, road and race course with proven Shimano components, stiff FSA cranks, trusty Alex rims and Tommaso TRS handlebar, stem and seat post. The Tommaso Bestia (Beast) will provide miles of dependability and excitement whether commuting or racing. Cyclocross bikes are tough and the Bestia is no exception. Consumers and the bike industry have nothing but praise for Shimano components. For the Bestia Tommaso matched up the Shimano 105 rear derailleur with Shimano Tiagra shifters with optical display. It's beneficial to see what gear you are in with a quick glance when ripping down the rougher roads. Putting all of this great technology in motion is the FSA compact Tempo crank. With the 50/34 gearing the FSA Tempo will take you anywhere the road or trail goes. The beauty of the compact crank is its simplicity over a heavier triple crank while supplying the user a very user-friendly gear ratio that is easier to command. Other Tommaso Bestia highlights include the light aluminum Tommaso TRS handlebar, stem and seatpost. These components are light, strong and built to last. Tektro supplies the braking power with its CR520 aluminum cantilever brakes with plenty of mud clearance. The grip to the ground is provided by Kenda 700x35 tires. Beefy enough to take on the hard-pack trails and just right for the morning commute. So the next fire road you see shooting into the distance is your welcome sign...get out there and explore.
