compact lightweight folding bicycle : Vilano Urbana

In preparation for my camping trip to the Overland Expo this year, I wanted to use a bicycle to get from the camp grounds to the expo which is about a 1/4 mile in the forest.

I did some research on line for budget bikes since I already have 2 bikes (26″ MTB & 24″ BMX) but they are not folders.

A couple companies caught my eye but Vilano had the best looking one for $199. Vilano sent me a sample for testing and review while at the Overland Expo! So here is the unboxing video.

Stay tuned for my full review after the expo.

Here is a link to if you want to buy this bike.

Here is the video of my review of the fat tire bike.


The gear I use.

GoPro Hero 4 Silver with the LCD screen.

EVO GP Pro 3 axis gimbal.

I use Sandisk micro SD cards in 32GB capacity.

I use the LUMIX FZ1000 that shoots in 4k.

Tamrac backpack that holds a 15″ MacBook Pro laptop

Tactical fleece jacket.

KEEN boots.

Sweet idea! Never thought of a folder for a camp or beach bike – really like the idea of not having a bike rack hanging off my Jeep! I’ll definitely keep this company in mind for when we need folders!

The bike is crap..

James Livingston says:

Thank you sir again!

1AbominAble1 says:

At that price the bike is a steal.

mykalbee says:

Looks cool and a decent option for OE West. Not sure if it would hold my fat ass but I suppose at that price it could be worth a try.

Jack Daniel says:

bought a folding bike from AMZN, the brakes were poorly assemble , should’ve checked 1st, when I went on a ride the brakes rubbed & broke on the front tire, so if u buy a cheap bike, the savings comes from the lack of labor assembling the bike so double check all the assembly when buyin a budget bike

thirdeyeguy says:

I can just picture you moding out that bike to full tactical beast mode for a SHTF ready pedal pusher

Eminence FrontX5 says:

This is great. Would make an awesome pit bike at track too or take with on a road trip! Sweet. Thank you Sir.

djishido says: for the same price you would get brakes, 7 speeds and a better build. Picked up one a couple of months ago and it’s superb.

DOGE says:

is this bike for kids? i would really like that

DEATH says:

It doesn’t comes with any brakes?

danhold1 Holdcroftski says:

nice quality bike for the money, thanks for sharing

MakeMyDay44Mag says:

Nice bike. Where are you going to mount the shotgun scabbard?

Jack Daniel says:

have u rode this bike in the bush yet? could ride off road?

enigma517 says:

Cool review, brother…that’s a great idea to bring a bike to the expo to cover ground more efficiently. I’m soooo looking forward to the expo next month to check out the rigs and products and meet like-minded overlanding folks!

Questions: How far is the campsite from the expo venue? Will those tires be sufficient for the terrain? How muddy could it be between the campsites and the venue?

MrFreeride1113 says:

Simple but effective. I own a Brompton and love it for touring with camping gear and taking trains in Europe.
VILANO looks like fun. Nice design. Bikes come in handy in so many situations.

snaz pizaz says:

Hi – can this bike be wheeled folded, using the seat or handle bar post extended ?

Captain Sam Wilson says:

Good Boat Bike, or camping /camper bike…

Charles Coffman says:

Thanks for letting us know they sent it to you for review, I love the transparency.

Vilano Bikes says:

Great video! The Vilano Urbana is one of my favorite bikes here.

Travis L. Desmadreson says:

Keep up the good work.

Stiles Humphrey says:

All it needs is an AR15 Mount on the front of the handlebars and I will be riding on the streets of Cali. Nice looking bike!
