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.

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).

Just after received my bike back, after sent it to my LBS for assembling & fine tuning, I went for a ride: it was the sweetest 35 Km (21 miles) I ever ride...

Good quality frame & fork and truly reliable "brifters" (brake/shifters), that indeed made a lot of difference in the performance...

Although is not a well known brand, I'm completely satisfied with the purchase.

I purchased this bike as my first entry level road bike. With carbon fork, I definitely noticed an improvement over my old metal fork. Overall I'm very happy with this bike. I received it sometime in early Aug 2014 and as of this month (Feb 2015) I've biked it for almost 6,500 miles. Although, I had to replace bottom bracket and all four ball bearing cones as they got warned out and damaged, I definitely give this bike a solid 4 stars. It's definitely an entry level road bike and for the price it did its job. Currently, I'm in the market for full carbon bike. Hope this helps.
