    The geometry works for me as I have long legs and a short body, so either need a huge stack of spacers, or a good tall head tube.

    I see you’ve gone for both 🙂

    I finally got this built up over the weekend

    Frame: Volagi Liscio 57cm
    Wheels: DT Swiss RC28 Spline DB
    Groupset: Shimano Ultegra Di2 Hydro
    Discs: Shimano Ice Tech Freeza F 160 – R 140
    Tyres: Bontrager R3 TLR
    Bars & Stem: 3T

    I’ve done 4 rides so far and am very happy (obviously). This will be my single road bike with full mud guards for winter duties. I am loving the brakes on the descents, very confidence inspiring, and the overall ride is very comfortable.

    Looks lovely!
    Don’t worry bout the comments of the head tube.
    I am 6’2″ and my head tube is massive on my road bike.
    As it is it works out and suits me perfectly!
    Just got discs on a crosser but would love to try them on a proper road bike.
    Thanx,
    Max

    Finished off nicely with the saddle bag.

    Like. I’m also of the crazy long legs and arms but short torso proportions, so that looks comfy!

    Lawn and climbing plants look ok but fence could do with painting and there looks to be some bare wood or mismatched wood to the left of the picture.

    Bike itself looks to be some kind of plastic abomination with motorbike brakes instead of callipers.

    Rest of the spec is ok but really should have a Brooks Swallow for the saddle.
