I have been riding this bike quite extensively and it occurred to me that I haven’t made a post on my Tommasini Tecno in some time. This is a fantastic riding bike. I strongly believe the steel fork makes all the difference when riding a steel bike. You MUST experience the difference of riding a steel fork again. Disclaimer: I am an authorized Tommasini dealer if you care to purchase one please contact me at email@example.com
A much more detailed report will follow. But in the meantime, I honestly can’t figure out what all the hype about carbon bikes is all about. Having ridden this bike almost 500 miles in varied road conditions i.e. smooth pavement, rough pavement, dirt and gravel, it escapes me why someone needs to spend $5,000 on a carbon bicycle frame! This is a FANTASTIC riding steel bicycle frame at a great and affordable price! MSRP is $1,049.95
I have often told my customers that I can tell if I’m going to like or be impressed by a bike in the first 10 pedals strokes out of my driveway. It’s the same with saddles, wheels, tires you name it. But I know some of you out there want to see a longer evaluation period so I will continue to ride and enjoy this bike. I will report back after I have reached a certain mileage milestone. Tomorrow is a very big riding day and I am excited to spend my day on the Ritchey Road Logic 2.0!
In the eleventh hour Alin has stepped up and volunteered to crew for team Hutton’s Vireo. Thank you in advance for your selfless dedication and devotion to getting us to the finish line!
The 308 is almost exactly 2 months since I was cleared to ride from my broken hip back in January 2014. I am blessed to have Alin returning as my crew chief. I am doubly blessed with having Lori Hoechlin as my relay teammate. She has been riding really strong this year. I only hope I don’t slow her down too much 🙂
I will put SPOT transmitter so if you are interested in following us on the 308 race course please look for the link in the next couple of days! If you are local to Southern California please make an effort to be at the Start/Finish hotel and support AdventureCORPS, crews and racers!

I am very excited to do a product review on the new Diadora Vector Pro Cycling shoes.
A few quick notes I wear a Specialized S-Works, Suplest a Switzerland company, and Shimano. I am also wearing a Diadora Vector Pro 45.
Right out of the box the fit and finish was extraordinary! The stitching work was immaculate.
The upper is made from large panels to minimize seams.
The insole supplied is a throw-away insole. I use a Specialized insole. I replaced it immediately.
There are a few good days of riding in this next week I will report back after a few hundred miles.
