Review
If you are looking for an entry level budget road bike which can be used for commuting, exercising and occasional group or club rides, the Vilano Aluminium road bike can be a good choice. This bike comes with a 6061 double butted aluminium frame which makes the bike fairly light. Shimano shifters of the bike offer a 21 speed gear range and allow smooth and fast gear shifting. Looks of the bike are stunning and certainly attract a lot of attention.
The free pedals which ship with the bike are pretty useless. The saddle could have been a lot better while the tires are a bit on the thinner side. The chain has a tendency to make a squeaking noise. In order to get the most out of this bicycle, you should have the saddle, the pedals and the wheels upgraded. The derailleurs of this bike are not that well-tuned out of the box and need some tune up before you start to ride this bike.
Overall, the bike looks alright. The ride quality offered is quite smooth and enjoyable. The bike is light as well as extremely handy and has the capability go fast. This bike is appropriate for use along the paved city streets. The price tag associated with this bike is more than reasonable and if you are considering budget road bike, certainly give this one a thought.
