The Vilano Performance Flat Bar bike has the capability of going fast which is a rare trait for a commuter bike. Its speed can be attributed to its 6061 aluminium frame which makes the bike extremely light and agile. One of the most important features for a commuter bike is the ride quality and on that front, it delivers quite well on its promise; ride quality offered is extremely smooth. The bike offers a 21- speed gear range which offers to you a wide array of options to choose from and enables the bike to handle any kind of terrain.
Gear shifts for this bike are not as smooth as expected and could have been a lot better. The wheels and the pedals of this bike are pretty low end which is the case with most of the bikes in this category and you might have to get those replaced for a smooth and hassle-free ride experience. Another thing that is missing from this commuter bike is the fender which should have been included as it claims to be hybrid commuter.
Overall, the bike performs well and offers to you a complete package of comfort, speed, style and durability within a small budget. If you are looking for a commuter bike which can also be used for riding or getting some exercising, this one can be the perfect choice for you.
