Vilano Tuono Road Bike Review – Unboxing and Initial Impression

Unpacking and assembling the value-priced Vilano Tuono road bicycle. Widely available for under $300 shipped, this is about as entry-level a road bike as you can get. I had a very hard time finding any recent legitimate reviews, videos, or feedback on the Tuono. So I decided to throw this quick video up so that you can get a general idea of what’s going to come out of the box if you decide to order one.

I had originally planned to try the $500 Tommaso Imola, another low-end 6061 aluminum bike with better components, but my size was back-ordered for several months and I didn’t want to wait that long. Both the Tuono and Imola are well-reviewed and considered great values for their price point. What this means is you’re getting a lot more bike for the price than you would with other brands – especially name brands. It does NOT mean you’re getting a great road bike, ready to ride out of the box! Something to keep in mind when comparing to $1000+ entry models that might be better suited to someone that just wants to jump right into riding.

At $269 delivered to my door and many solid 4-5 star reviews, I figured there wasn’t a whole lot of risk in giving the Tuono a try. It’s a great looking bike with a decent frame that’s certainly worthy of being fitted with better-quality components over time.

Basic specs:

6061 Aluminum frame, 21 speeds (3 x 7) with granny gear, Shimano Tourney rear indexed derailleur, Shimano non-indexed front derailleur, Shimano A050 thumb shifters, 700c alloy wheels, 700×25 Kenda tires, unknown brand Presta-valve tubes.

This is basically just a quick unboxing, and it’s pretty obvious I’m not great at making videos. Still, I’ll try to put together a few more with assembly tips, tuning info and more in-depth info on the actual components.

Please comment if you would like more specific info on any part of the bike or the components!

I put together a Google site with more info on the Vilano Tuono:
