DESCRIPTION

Is Vilano Tuono T20 a good bike? Well that depends on your expectations. This bike is equipped with pretty common/standard shimano gears and shifter which are not high-end, but still a reliable choice. Reportedly the brakes required a few adjustments and are not very "strong", which to be honest is a common complaint for most bikes in this price range. The shifter is your typical old style lever mounted at the handlebars, and honestly I prefer them to the twist shifter, but to each their own. Overall this bike is definitely good pick for the money, chances are you won't find a much better road bike at this price point, unless buying used.

PROS & CONS

PROS

Easy and straightforward assembly.

The bike is very sturdy thanks to 6061 Double Butted Aluminum.

A water bottle cage included with the purchase.

Bike comes with pretty good equipment(disc brakes, a modest shimano shifter etc.) considering the price.

CONS

Some customers reported that some parts of the bike arrived faulty and required replacement.

A bit on the heavier side, comparable bikes are 4-6 pounds lighter.

The cage is reportedly of poor quality and breaks easily.

The standard pedals could see an improvement.
