I may have a change of heart after sleeping on this, but I am listing for sale my Tommasini Sintesi that has less than 200 miles on it and is as near new as any actually ridden frame I have ever owned.

This Tommasini Sintesi is painted a gorgeous candy red with bright white decals and yellow/white decor. The fancy sculpted headtube lugs, fork, seat stays, and chain stays are all chromed. Tommasini logos are pantographed in the headtube lugs, brake bridge, top of the seat stays, top of the bottom bracket shell, and fork crown. The fork is a Tommasini AIR 1" threaded chromed model. My daughter says this frame is "blinged out", which sounded like a compliment coming from a 12 year old who seldom notices any of my bike stuff.

The frame is fully lugged and built with Columbus Neuron steel tubing. Neuron tubing was designed specifically for bicycles, and has a great strength to weight ratio. For more information on Columbus Neuron bike tubing, see:

The frame measures 56cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the top tube with a 55.5cm top tube. The short semi-horizontal (no adjusting screws included) rear drop outs measure 130mm wide, and the head tube is 133mm. The frame has the rear brake cable routed internally through the top tube, pump peg, two sets of water bottle bosses, braze-on derailleur tab, down tube shifter bosses, and an Italian threaded bottom bracket spins in by hand.

This frame and fork are so much more beautiful than pictures can capture. The condition of this Tommasini is excellent to like-new. The paint is vibrant, and the chrome on the stays and fork and lugs is shiny and bright. The frame and fork have been built up and lightly ridden, so there are build marks, but this is an amazingly nice frameset. The frame and fork have been completely treated inside the tubes with Boeshield T-9 rust prevention spray. Includes a Campagnolo Record headset already installed.

Lots of pictures available for the asking. $875 for the frame, fork, and headset professionally packed, shipped, and insured to the lower 48 United States.
