Tommaso Imola for women is an entry level road bike targeted exclusively to women. Like its twin Tommaso Imola, this bike offers a smooth and delectable ride experience. Its aluminium frameset has been designed specifically for women and it makes the bike strong but light at the same time. Like its twin, it uses Shimano derailleurs which do a fine job and offer smooth and seamless shifting. The 24 speed gearing mechanism offers a wide range to choose from.
The bike does not ship with pedals and you will have to arrange them on your own. Although assembling the bike is not going to pose a problem if you have done something like this before, it does not come with any printed instructions. If you are a newbie, then it is best to take it to your local bike shop. You might also want to tune the derailleurs and the brakes. The tires of this bike are a bit on the thinner side and you might have to get them replaced if you intend to take it off-road quite often.
Overall, this bike succeeds in delivering on its promises and is one of the best entry level bikes in the women’s segment. Looking at the price of the bike and the range of features available, it is quite a deal and is definitely worth the money your spend.
