What customers say about "Key Specs"
Vilano Tuono 2.0 Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano
  • Very light all gears work smoothly and for the price I am very happy with the bike.
  • For a road bike it is durable enough to go the distance without costing you more than a car.
  • My first ride I took it out for 10 miles, my second ride I took it out for 30 miles. It is solid, responsive, and light.
  • Great entry level bike! I used this for my olympic triathlon and it did great, no complaints.
  • It is light, fast, looks great, comfortable. The first day I had it I road 7 miles doing errands and it did the job perfectly!
Vilano Shadow 2.0 Road Bike - Shimano STI Integrated Shifters
  • The bike is nice and lite and fun to ride.
  • It's a great bike - it's super lightweight and I feel like it's way speedier than my other bike of which is technically lighter and "nicer".
  • Impressions on quality are great; the frame, crank, and Tourney groupset work perfectly fine and the seating position is pretty comfortable after a little personalizing.
  • The brakes are good and the frame is well designed and it's light for an entry level bike.
  • The frame is very light yet durable and I am easily able to carry it up the two flights of stairs in my house.

What customers say about "Components"
Vilano Tuono 2.0 Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano
  • The quick release wheels are great for transport.
  • All of this went simply, and on the first ride down the street, the gears shifted smoothly and precisely.
  • The seat post still has more height to go if I needed to go higher.
  • The rear derailer in notched so that each gear clicks smoothly into place with no chain grinding.
  • The gears shifted smoothly, and the wheels were relatively true straight out of the box.
Vilano Shadow 2.0 Road Bike - Shimano STI Integrated Shifters
  • It's been great so far. I ride city streets, 6 miles uphill and 6 miles back down(average about 8% grade). No flats so far on the stock tires.
  • Lighweight, STI shifters, good quality - and not just for the money. Greatest value/price ratio.
  • Smooth shifting after the tune up, fast, handles nice, best on smooth surfaces!
  • This bike is a really nice ride, the Tourney shifters are smooth and easy.
  • The bike performs flawlessly; shifting, braking, pedals, wheels, everything is superb!

What customers say about "Features"
Vilano Tuono 2.0 Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano
  • The Vilano is an excellent entry level road bike. I was able to do the minor assembly tasks with no problem.
  • The bike is great. I, definitely, recommend this bike for beginners. Also, assembly was simple.
  • Assembly went quickly as I watched the video mentioned on the box.
  • The bike is half-assembled with you needing to install the handlebar, the shifters to the handlebar, the seatpost, the pedals, the front-wheel, and the front brake.
  • A nice touch is that there are videos online to help aid you with the installation of this bike specifically.

  • Fits like a glove. Everything else is highly adjustable: handlebars, neck, seat.
  • The seat does not look comfortable, but I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't notice it at all during my rides.
  • Saddle is comfortable enough, and it feels lighter than I'd expected for an aluminum frame.
  • Quite a lot of bike for the low cost. Assembly was a snap, took about 30 minutes to go from box to road.
  • There are no directions for assembly, but wasn't an issue for me and went together easy peasy!
