2017 is starting out as an exciting year here at Giantnerd. With tons of new Tommaso Bikes in stock, great upgrades and improvements across the board, this line is better than ever. The Tommaso Sentiero, our top selling adventure bike, is a customer favorite that we made some notable upgrades on for 2017!
The Sentiero has always been an amazing bike, so we decided to add a new matte black color that has been turning heads! You can now ride the Sentiero in two great colors to match your riding style and preferences. For 2017, the new color option is just the icing on the cake, as we upgraded the fork, cassette, and tires, creating our best entry level all-terrain ride to date.
The re-designed Sentiero fork now fits seamlessly into the headtube. Not only does the new design look great, but the real benefit is improving headset function while repelling dirt, mud, and water from entering and damaging the bearings. This ultra-durable steel fork is perfect for commuting, riding through variable terrain, or speeding through your streets.
Over the past two years we have only had one consistent request, and that was to make the bike come stock with larger tires. We listened and added new 700x32c Kenda Kwick-Trax All-Terrain tires. These tires are wider and have much better tread than the previous 700x28c Kenda Kwick Tendril tires, but still work great on the road without adding rolling resistance. The 2017 Sentiero is better equipped than ever to ride the roads, trails, dirt, gravel, or anything else you throw at it!
Finally, we decided to have the 2017 Sentiero match the full Shimano Claris drivetrain present on the Sterrata, so we upgraded the cassette. Instead of the Sunrace cassette we used on the older Sentiero models, we are now using a Shimano Claris cassette, to ensure accurate, precise shifitng every time.
