When I first got the bike, it only took a few minutes to put it together. add seat, front tire & handlebars and good to go. The tubes burst almost immediately trying to air them up to 90psi (typical for stock tubes, not upset) was prepared and had spare on hand. Added some 13mm velox to the rim and havent had an issue since, over 140mi since the swap. Tires are still in good condition, I only use this bike on the road or paved sidewalks and they've held up well thus far.
I put in 10-20mi per day depending on my schedule and this thing has improved my performance greatly. Coming from a mountain bike, the difference is night and day. If you're a beginner cyclist and want to learn freewheel/fixie, this is a great inexpensive way. If you're a commuter or hobbyist, this is a great inexpensive bike. Please understand that with most bikes, you'll be replacing pieces, unless you spend the high dollar, you're not typically going to find a bike out of the box that is perfect. Do the research, find the pieces that will fit your body as well as the frame of this bike and go ham. $50-$100 in new accessories still makes this the better option.
Had it for a long time.
Parts are welded cheaply
Handle bar broke
Crank set crooked enough to crack through a few chains
Rim tape is cheap, will pinch tubes
Seat is garbage on my sciatica
But the pros are it's price
And that it can be ridden hard like a work horse
Just understand it's cheaply made
You'll be constantly fixing it up and having to swap in upgrades
Definitely a DIY cheap bicycle
I was going to swap up for a better crank set...
I received mine last night and put it together (with adjusting the brakes, seat and etc) in 2 hours.
This morning I road it 12 miles to work with no problems. The tubes didn't pop and the brake cables didn't snap.
Here or some recommendations when putting this together.
1. don't fill up the tires to 100psi, you are just asking to pop a tube on a tire that small. For a tire of that size, I recommend 58-ish psi. I weigh 170 and carry about 20lbs in my backpack on average.
2. lube the chain, sprockets and etc prior to riding. take the bike for a small ride around the block to work the lube in and let it sit for a bit.
3. adjust the brakes correctly and do this with trial and error. Of course you will snap a cable or brake a lever if you adjust this wrong.
I only have 2 complaints about the bike.
1. I wish the main sprocket was larger so that I wouldn't have to peddle so much and be able to pick up more speed.
2. the brakes are slow to a stop. I am unsure if this is because the bike is new and needs to be worked in on the new rims but that could be the case.
All and all, this is totally worth $200. It's not the greatest bike in the world but with some upgrades, it can be pretty awesome. The only thing I am planning on changing is the seat and the brake levers. I like the V Brake Levers.
I bought the red/black large version. I am 5' 10'' and it fit me very well, the colors are none too gaudy either.
Very simple assembly with good instructions, I used my drill but you could just as easily get by with an Alan set and a couple of metric wrenches.
Overall great package, very high quality materials for a very reasonable price. Would certainly buy again. Keep it up Vilano!
