I've had this frame/fork since 2011, and it's been sitting in the closet for the passed 5 years :lol:
Finally had this build-up two weeks ago.
Here's a short impression of the Tommasini Tecno.
The curved fork on the Tommasini sure makes a lot of difference, I find that it provides better compliance on rough surfaces as oppose to the straight fork on the Colnago Master. In other words, the front end of the Tommasini is a lot more comfortable especially on long rides. Note however I do find that the Precisa fork on the Master to be able to track more precisely when going into corners as oppose to the Tommasini Air fork.
The Columbus Nemo tubing on the Tommasini looks pale in comparison to the super oversize tubes on my other bikes (Cipo RB1k, C60 etc), however I can assure you that looks can be deceiving, this is one heck of a responsive frameset and has no problems keeping up with the usual plastic bikes.
Definitely a keeper :thumbup:

Built list:
1. Tommasini Tecno, Columbus Nemo (color code: 14ZH) frameset with Tommasini Air cromoly fork
2. Campagnolo Record '09, 11 speed groupset with Record 11 Crankset 170mm 53/39
2. Selle Italia SLR C64 saddle
3. Deda Superleggera 27.2mm seatpost
4. Deda Zero100 bars in 42cm
5. PRO Vibe 7s stem in 120mm
6. Look Keo Blade Cromo
7. Campagnolo Bora Ultra Two, Chorus 12/25 cassette, Conti Comp 22mm tubular
8. Campagnolo Record bottle cage
9. Cateye Strada Wireless

Total weight: 7.86 kg

@SpecializedColnago,
Thanks!
In fact, I think the build quality on the Tecno is as good if not better than a Master.
Btw, liking your Master in Saronni!

Thanks for the compliment. Your Colnago Master is actually my desktop background and one of the best looking bikes I've ever seen. You new steel build might replace your master as my new background though haha.

I almost got my hands on one of these, but ended up with my Colnago Master X Light PR82. Your Blue / Black theme looks great, I really like your choices. I know most my not like the wheels, but I love the deeper aero wheels on the steel frame, we think alike as you can see .......

Congrats on a great job nailing this build, but then we have come to expect that from you.

Awesome! One of the most beautiful steel frames ever.
I would just prefer Hyperon over Bora, that's all.

Yes, gorgeous frame... but I'd also prefer to see a low profile wheelset on that beauty.

Stunning build maverick_1 and you're absolutely right about the Tecno; they're fantastically smooth and comfortable with incredible build quality.

I wouldn't change a thing. The color is beautiful, and a great build. I love it. Seeing your bike makes me want to build up a steel bike.
