Vilano Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano Review

Vilano Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed

Vilano Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano is the lightest bike in its class with a total weight of 24 lbs. This weight makes this entry level bike very fairly priced and easy to maneuver. It has a lightweight aluminum frame that comes with an integrated headset and mounted with Shimano drive-train and A050 gear shifters fixed on the handlebars.


Most people would be asking, why a Shimano? I would go ahead to say, 21-speed aluminum Shimano is the lightest in its class hence giving entry-level riders the best maneuverability, smooth rides, and control over the bike as well as not laden them with heavy bicycles which they might get stuck with amid large crowds or in between traffic. With this bike it is very easy to ride or stop instantly and maneuver past crowds or people and sidewalks without bumping into people, all because of its weight. The 21-speed Shimano is also fast and makes a good commuter bike.

Gear shifts

The gear shifts in this bike are conveniently located close to the middle part of the handlebars. This does not only make it easy to switch to a higher or a lesser speed, hence easy traversing on different terrains but also goes a long way in enhancing the bike's look.

Customer review and scores

Vilano Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano has 309 customer reviews majority of which rate the bike at 4 stars or 5 stars. Most of the 5 stars ratings are from users who bought the bike new and took it for servicing before the first ride. Pros and consThe tires that come with the Vilano Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano will help you ride smoothly on the pavement but not for long. They are type 200c by 25c tires which do not last long and will soon need new replacements.The bike also comes in parts like all other bikes, but with a small toolbox for you to fix the parts using the Vilano an easy guide manual. This is however very easy, but if you feel incapable, the local bike shop can handle that for you.Some of the Vilano bikes just like all bikes can have a defect or two probably due to shipping but what makes Vilano stand out is that by making a call to the Vilano Customer Service you get a new bike shipped directly to you.


Vilano Aluminum Road Bike 21 Speed Shimano is a great bike for anyone. Even though it is considered an entry-level bike, even experts appreciate its light weight, maneuverable and easy to use gear shifters.

GMC Denali Road Bike Review

GMC Denali Road Bike Review

Just like the GMC Denali line of trucks the GMC Denali Road Bike is a good piece of engineering. This Denali Pro bike comes only in one size, 56 cm frame size with a recommended height range of 5' 9" to 6'1" and a stand over height of 31.5". This is a 16-speed bike that will get you stability and safety all rolled into one. Also has integrated brakes and gear shifts so you don't have to move your arm to shift or brake.

Break and Rim Coordination

With the Denali pro's aluminum rims and the bikes Promax 501A Alloy Caliper Brakes. Everything just comes to a halt when you press down the brake levers. The brake levers are also aluminum Promax BL-250AP and you don't have to worry about them twisting or breaking like the plastic models in other cheaper bikes.

Aluminum Frame and drop bars

These two features make this bike aerodynamically suitable for speed. You can easily make-up to 22mps and maintain the speed with this Denali pro bike. The drop bars also have dual pivot alloy brakes hence you can choose how you wish to hold the bars, either way down in a linear position or an inclined position but at both you'll still have the best of the brake function.

Customer reviews and Rating Score

The GMC Denali Road Bike has a total of 75 reviews in Amazon most ranging from 3 stars to 4.5 stars. The bike has not been a favorite since most people are looking for a comfortable day to day commuter bike. For those looking for roadsters bikes, Denali Pro bike has been a darling and has scored 4 and 5 stars.Pros and ConsThe saddle of this bike comes as a disappointment to those who purchase the bike for luxury cycling. This is because the bike is constructed in a generic stock road bike geometry and with a road bike saddle which doesn't give much consideration to comfort. Looking on the brighter side of the coin, though, you can opt to change the saddle and upgrade to aARS men relief saddle that unlike the original Denali Pro saddle gives comfort consideration to the junk and rear end regions.Another problem with this bike is the braking system. They need regular maintenance since they easily fall off. This wouldn't be a problem if you are good in being handy.The details tires are thin and especially meant for long distance rides on the roads and high-speed cycling.The bike is also assembled by the buyer but this is more of an advantage since you can choose to replace the parts you know will not suit you even before the first ride.


For a mid-ranged bike under $200, Denali pro is a good bike easy to ride, fast and stylish.

Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c Review

Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c Review

Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c comes in three sizes; small, medium and large. It comes in two colors, either white or red and has a 16-speed Shimano STI drivetrain shifters and derailleurs. It is a handcraft inspiring an Italian look.

Aluminum Light weight frame

The Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c is lightweight, weighing around 24 lb making it a breeze to ride on. It is also sturdy on its aluminum frame and very easy to ride and fast, even on sloppy surfaces without breaking a sweat.

Precision 16 Speed Shimano STI Drive Train

When you get to the hilly areas with the Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c, this is where you'll understand the gears and the aluminum light weight frame was meant for one another. The 16 speed Shimano STI drivetrain enables the rider to smoothly shifting every time, hence racing past other colors on the upslope as if you are riding downslope. Also, with this drive-train you don't have to worry about getting “hung up” like how other drive-train bikes do. It is excellent at picking up in varying and diverse conditions and terrains.

Customer Review and Rating Scores

The Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c has a total of 171 Amazon reviews, with most people giving it a 5 star. Only a few people seem not to have been totally satisfied thereby awarding the bike 4 stars and very few 3-star ratings.Pros and consSome people complain about the Giordano Libero 1.6 Men's Road Bike-700c using an entry-level derailleur and a shift system by customers has been noted, but at the same time the price is decent for the bike. This goes a long way in indicating that a more complex system means a much more expensive bike.A few riders have complained and replaced the stock saddle for a more comfortable saddle, but as expected bikes are not meant for sitting comfort.Every customer says it ships well with no broken parts or damaged frames.The brakes don't halt immediately as the case in the Denali Pro bike, hence this makes the bike a beloved of moderate speed riders.This bike comes almost completely pre-assembled with only the brakes, pedals and handlebars being a side but also very easy to fix.


This bike is very attractive and some reviewers say the white model looks girlish. It is also good and light for people who would love to do some outdoor cycling exercise, for commuting and performance training. It has great high gears that make it churn flat, but inclined surfaces with ease. It is also stylish and fairly priced.
