The 2017 Tommaso La Forma has been redesigned to make it a smoother and better commuting machine than ever. With the ultra-comfortable saddle and gel grips to the upright geometry, this bike will get you were you want to go with speed and comfort. The high quality 6061 aluminum frame is rack ready to meet even the most demanding commutes. The HCT carbon fiber fork coupled with 27 Shimano Acera equipped speeds make this the right bike for all your fitness and commuting needs. The La Forma is specifically engineered to provide you with thousands of miles of dependability and enjoyment, year after year.
The La Forma is equipped with a Shimano Acera Triple 48/36/26T crankset up front and a Shimano 11/32T, 9-speed cassette in the rear. We upgraded the cassette to the incredible gearing range of an 11/32T to help you climb even the largest hills with ease, while not sacrificing any speed on the flats. The La Forma is not just your ordinary fitness bike, as it is outfitted with Shimano Acera derailleurs and shifters and a premium WTB saddle, all components that you normally only find on bikes costing significantly more. If you are looking for a great bike to get you on the road, but don't want to mortgage your house to own it, then the Tommaso La Forma should be on the top of your list.
The La Forma is part of the Tommaso Sport Series line of bikes which are engineered with Tommaso's OGS (Optimized Geometry System) frame design. The OGS design utilizes various tube shapes and thicknesses to provide the rider with both efficient power transmission and excellent road dampening qualities. This combination helps reduce body fatigue and will provide you with the ability to extend your rides to longer distances. We are so confident in these bikes, that every Tommaso frame is warrantied for life, so you can ride with confidence year after year.
