    Bang for the buck.. My Vilano SS

    The weather finally got decent enough to take my new ride out today. This is my first SS / Fixie and I have to

    tell you, for what I paid...

    I just popped an 18t freewheel on to save my knees..til I build up some steam.

    The only other thing I am gonna swap out is the bar to a bullhorn..

    All in all.. This bike is a great value for a quality cromo framed city blaster! Totally worthy and customizable!

    I like it with the risers. Hang on to them so you can swap out. Looks like a great setup.

    so what you are really telling us is that while you were posting for the past few days in the other vilano thread what a great bike it is...
    that you had not actually ridden it yet?

    No.. I had ridden prior to today's outing. I just didn't get a chance to snap any outdoor pix til just today. I changed up the gearing and had a good go on her today.

    How much did you actually pay? Any bike is if the price is low enough.

    Looks good, though. I like the risers on it.
