Ordered the Vilano Forza 1.0, after doing major research on the Internet. I'm new to road bikes and wanted a dependable bike. I ordered several extras that were suggested with the purchase. Got my bike today and took half an hour to assemble. It was little for me to do. They installed my new saddle, I thought I would have to switch the factory one. Took bike on 16 mile test ride. Absolutely no problems. My only adjustment was the seat height. This bike is great!! Watched all the videos on website which help speed up assembly. I plan to keep this bike for a long time.
Received this bike today. Came within a week. Assembly took 45 minutes. Wow - I love it. Love the color, it's a manly flat smoke black. Wife has a Cervelo, just as light, rides like a charm. So excited. Didn't know if I would like buying a bike online and was hesitant, but so glad I did.
After months and months of research, I decided that i did not have the money to buy a Name brand bike and did not really want to sacrifice components either. I found this Vilano and ordered it. I have not yet regretted the decision. I have put over 1200+ miles on it and I am still rocking the original tires and tubes! I did change out the stem for comfort reasons and I would recommend getting a better seat. Road bikes outlet are great to work with if you have any questions or problems. I would recommend the bike and the company to anyone that wants to ride and is not rich.
I purchased this bike for my husband in June 2011. He loves it. He rides 40miles five days per week so the bike is put under a good deal of pressure. He highly recommends it.
We will definitely be sticking to this series.
I just finished my first ride on this Great Bike! There is a lot of value for the $$. Bike arrived within 4 shipping days, was in perfect condition (no damage), and was surprisingly easy to assemble (about 2 hours total), with very little 'tune up' adjustment needed. I just followed the assembly videos and was done quickly.
I plan on logging some miles on this, and I really feel it will do the job!
Great Customer Service too!!
