Discover André’s TOMI # 18!
To introduce André to you, we just need to tell you how the delivery went.
The appointment is made with André on a Friday afternoon, at 5 p.m., to deliver his TOMI # 18 to him. We usually prepare a little staging during deliveries, hiding the bike under a sheet and installing a light atmosphere up to the moment. Usually, customers arrive on time. André, he arrives so early that our production is not ready at all, and we hurry to make him wait outside so as not to spoil the surprise. He is trampling.
It’s time to show him his bike. Everything happens very quickly. Discovering with great pleasure his new companion, André pauses for a while, takes a few photos, then quickly begins to fidget around the bike since the urge to ride on it becomes unbearable. The time to unhook the bike from its support, André jumps on the bike, leaves the workshop by pedaling, before offering us a spectacle of maneuverability and energy outside. “It’s a bomb!” he lets go of us in the distance. The intense joy of a child, which will remain for us also a rather incredible moment to live. The kind of moment that reminds us why we do this job.
Here are his first sensations:

“Today’s program is the test of my new bike, the Tomi 18. With 81 km of track, single and road on the menu, the test was complete.

It turns out that this bike is very balanced, nervous when you have to relaunch and stiff when it gets tough. I think the oversized socket helps that. The angle of the fork is good and allows you to take steps and descend into the steep pits without fear.
The transmission is great. It goes everywhere, it’s fluid, the 40 tooth chainring should allow me to go through everything.
I am very satisfied with the machine, it is a success. The bike is very lively, playful, precise and very stable when going fast. I will undoubtedly break a lot of strava records with him! “
Thank you for your confidence and your enthusiasm André!
