Things that should be thrown out before your first ride - The saddle is probably the most uncomfortable that ive ever sat in, but doubling up on my gel cycling shorts made it tolerable. Brakes suck, they stop, but you really have to squeeze'm. I didnt even look at the pedals, just thru them out and replace with some Shimano SPD clipless pedals off my old bike.
All in all, im VERY satisfied with this purchase. Great bike, great price. :D
Instead of just keeping the bike, I will request a talk with management. I should not have to make a repair for their misconfiguration! Next time, I will save my money and go with a bike that already has everything. This bike, I keep having to tinker with it. If I have to do it again, I'm cutting my losses and trading it in.
The people who spec'd it, I no longer trust! So for that, I am taking it down to 2 stars really because I just found out that the Tiagra (while it was a newer derailleur) doesn't quite work with Shimano Sora...not this version. Which means gears skip on certain levels. If I were mostly level and moderately hilly terrain, I would likely rarely notice it. But since I am on extreme hilly terrain, the bike will be much more sensitive. The bike shop identified the error and I have to downgrade my derailleurs to fit the shifters (or reverse the process and spend tons more money).
That said, you get what you pay for. I give 1 STAR to the owners who spec'd this out. I won't buy from them again. I cannot trust this kind of oversight. I don't know if it was deliberate or a very serious mistake.
I give the bike 3 stars on most of the components and the fix is about $60. I should not have to pay for this.
Update May 2018: I've been riding this bike since last year. It's going great. I actually did get to 25 mph on it several times and still going strong. It's fast and light. Love it. I did upgrade the wheels to Mavic Aksiums. I got them at a great price. I've upgraded the seat. I upgraded the brakes to Shimano 105s and I upgraded the pedals to Shimano Ultegras (got a great price on sale and similar design to Dura-Ace but less price). It's time for a tune up. The paint holds up fine so far too and I scrubbed several times but still looks fine. I'll keep you posted!
I rode my bike for the first time last night. It's certainly fast. I will post updates here. The bike itself is 4 stars all the way just because of the frame and components. I give 3 stars to the description because it shipped with damaged spokes & because the wheels said 28 but shipped with 23s and the frame can really only go up to 25 which is fine. The shop fixed the spokes at no cost to me. I will get those tires later. The bike is a winner and upgradeable. It certainly stands side by side with $1k bikes with similar or even less. I'll post my upgrades shortly. I am excited and love my bike!!!
the wire guide under it is plastic, that broke 1000 miles in. The tires are cheapo, I replaced with gator skin. the gear shift caps come off easy and I continue to have to glue them on because they are plastic and the their screw holes ripped. One day I will get new shifters. Be careful the bike scratches very easy. My paint job is riddled with scratches.
I have no problem with the issues thus far. Vilano has provided a great bike for me. I don't know if it's the bike or the wheels but I always pass any other cyclist. Few manage to keep up. I was even thinking about buying a new one, that can sparkle while this one would be my training bike.
