    All I want is a handmade Italian steel bicycle with chromed lugs, a fancy paint job and a full Campy groupset. I priced one together at Wrenchscience for the pictured bike and it was almost 7K with full Chorus. My wife is adamantly opposed and I will likely never get a new one. She says that if I'm buying an Italian handmade bike, we also need enough money to fly us both over to Italy to pick it up. I keep hoping a miracle happens on ebay (with her blessing of course)

    Volagi Viaje XL. Don't think I need a titanium or carbon frame since I'm not a competitive racer, so steel will do. I like their fitting program if you buy a bike from them - you fly over there for a fitting, they put you up for one free night at a hotel, and give you a rebate towards the cost of your flight based on how much you spent on the bike.

    I love to travel, so I'm a sucker for this kind of deal, plus I like the looks of their bikes.

    @GovernorSilver, you are aware that there is at least one very, very vocal supporter of Volagi on the forum? She might even be willing to talk to you about her bike (she has a steel frame, IIRC).

    It's worse than that -- there are three of them now.

    I hope:

    1. At least one of them goes to the next happy hour.
    2. I arrive at the happy hour on time, instead of late like in July.

    I've only been riding since May - no cycling experience before that. So it might be a bit early to go for a more "custom" bike like the Volagi, but it'd be nice to talk to a Volagi owner. I get how some peeps may not like the geometry or whatever, but I'm part of the target market for the new generation of road bikes that are designed to go on a variety of surfaces (gravel/sand patches, asphalt with tree roots underneath, etc.) instead of perfect pavement, and also allow for upright riding position so the rider can more easily scan for unexpected traffic conditions (cars, pedestrians and rogue cyclists darting out of unexpected places, etc.). The Volagi frame reminds me of the Specalized Diverge, which I also don't have a problem with.

    What I do know is that the bike I have now isn't a match for me. Chainring tooth count is low, maintenance is difficult, etc,.
