    Looks nice, although saddle angle seems a bit off

    I saw the pic and wondered how long it would take for someone to comment. My saddle is c0ck-on yet it still got a comment about it.

    Nice looking bike. I had a CX Team many moons ago which confirmed to me that disc brakes were the future on road bikes - hence the Volagi Liscio.

    The only question I'd have is why a 160mm rotor on the back. Even with 140mm rear, it's very easy to lock.

    Maybe you have a droopy cock? Mine is flat and got no comments
  • Hi Guys.

    The frame is built for double 160mm rotors, so why add bits on to make a smaller rotor fit? Ive never locked up my back wheel as most of my braking is done on the front anyhow.

    The saddle angle is downward pointing through trail and error having ridden 22,500 miles in the last two years. I ride on the hoods when climbing (and most of my rides involve ascending and descending the mountains of South Wales.

    I see you are running the CX70 with 11 spd shifters, any issues?
    Did you run an inline cable adjuster for the front mech?

    No inline adjuster, Just fit and go. I am upgrading to Ultegra DI2 in the near future though.
