Vilano FORZA 3.0 Aluminum Carbon Road Bike Shimano SoraIn this post I will review the Vilano FORZA 3.0 Aluminum Carbon Road Bike Shimano Sora. I bought this bike for competing, sport, and training. I ride it hard and have ridden it hard and have gone as far as 30 miles on one ride. So far I’m very pleased with this bike. The price is not bad at all for what you get with this road bike.

The Vilano FORZA 3.0 has a very durable and light aluminum frame. The bike also comes with some really great triathlon bars. I’m also really pleased with the shifter that comes with the bike. One thing I didn’t like was the stock seat, the seat was very uncomfortable during long rides. I quickly replaced the seat so its not really a big issue.

This is a great bike for the price. I’m very pleased with my purchase of this road bike and it has served me well in all my competitions and training. I definitely recommend this bike to everyone.
