Vilano FORZA 4.0 Aluminum Road Bike Review

Posted July 27, 2013 by admin in Bike Reviews

Vilano FORZA 4.0 Aluminum Road BikeThe Vilano FORZA 4.0 Aluminum Road Bike is one of the nice higher end Vilano road bike models. This bike though alittle more than some of the other models made by Vilano is still inexpensive when you compare them to a lot of the $1,000+ models out there.

I’ve been racing for a long time and my main racing bike was having some issues so I started looking for a replacement. At the end I purchased this bike because for the price it was the best I could find. I’ve ridden a few very expensive bikes out there and there isn’t much difference. So needless to say I’m very pleased with my purchase.

The bike seems to be really light but at the same time pretty strong, the stock rims are also very strong. The shimano gears are very responsive, its also very easy to shift gears on this bike because they are right next to the brake levers.

This bike is a really good bike for the price and I was very surprised by just how well it has preformed so far. I would definitely take a look at this bike if your not sure about investing a lot into another bike, this bike just might be what your looking for at a fraction of the price.
