As a brand, Vilano are something of an enigma. We’ve tried reaching out to various UK and US Vilano bike distributors, but with little success.
However, that doesn’t mean Vilano bikes are not a safe purchase, they absolutely are. The brand has a great reputation, online research shows good customer service levels and that the very few complaints or issues have been dealt with quickly.

Vilano bike range
There are UK and US Vilano distributors, but we think that the Vilano manufacturer is probably based in China. There are a number of affordable, cheap cycling brands trading in Western markets that are of Chinese heritage and it is typical to not be able to find information about them.
Regardless of the lack of information, Vilano has a comprehensive range of bikes spanning all cycling disciplines - Road bikes, Hybrids, Fixies, MTB, Kids etc. For the large part they have a good reputation of being affordable but robust - every we like here at Cheap Cycling.
