I bought this as the higher end Forza b/c it had the better components: FSA crank and 105 rear mech. I was not disappointed. The color is a nice flat white, easy to keep clean. The build quality is great and it is an excellent entry-level road bike. The wheelset is not bad, about 2000g....not aero, but at this price/level riders like me don't need aero wheels. Front rim is radial spoked, the rear is 2x. Most of the bargain wheelsets you can buy are about the same weight or heavier so stick with the wheelset on it until you're read to spend $300-$450 on a decent set. Personally, I'd buy a set of rims and the hubs I want and take them to my LBS; you'll get what you want and get better quality for your money. Brakes are OK, I already switched mine to 105 front/rear and better pads but the Pro-Max brakes do work just OK to start. Something to note, my front brake did NOT come installed so you need to know at least a little bit to get it ready to ride, or take it to your LBS and have them do a pro-tune on it. Worth the money and definitely worth introducing yourself to your LBS because you will need them sooner or later. Saddle is junk, toss it, I'm using Planet Bike 5020 Men's ARS Standard Anatomic Relief Saddle with Gel and it's great. Pedals I didn't even use, immediately installed my Delta Exustars, but the boxed pedals come with toe clips/straps. I'm not sure why saddles and pedals are included on bikes like this, because even at this entry level most riders have their own preferences. Leave the store-shelf parts to the beginner bikes like the GMC Denali choices.Read more ›

I wanted to buy an entry level road bike, and after some research the Vilano Forza Bike was my #1 alternative.
I've been riding for 5 months and haven't had any trouble.
It's a feasible bike with very good components for and entry level. If looking for something better I'll probably need to spend 1,5 k.
Shifts and brake works good, but I'll probably need to spend on a better saddle and a pair of pedals.

100% satisfied.

Size Name: 50cm Verified Purchase
This bike is awesome :) It is my first road bike, but I have already ridden it successfully for a few long rides (20 to 50K) and love it!

The main things I would change about it are the seat (it is an instrument of torture) and the pedals that come with (the straps are cheap and an annoyance).
