A picture is worth a thousand words.

I am 5'11" and have a 32" inseam. I rode a large and it fit well. I rode the build on item number WLY001T, but should give you a good frame of reference however you decide to build your frame up!
First of all, I need to give the disclaimer that I am first and foremost, a mountain biker (you may have already picked up on this with the SPD pedals on here). I am not a road biker, though you will occasionally find me on board one (especially if I can get on board a sweet build like the one I was on). So if that doesn't scare you off from the rest of the review, read on!
At first I was worried the reach was a bit long for me on the large - maybe in the drops a touch, but ended up fitting really well after spending a bit of time on it. I was really impressed with the attention to detail that Wilier put into the frame. Lot of neat features: disc or rim brakes, a barrel adjuster built into the frame, Actiflex damper, an aero style bike that is comfortable to ride.
Which brings me to my first point - the Actiflex damper. The bike is surprisingly snappy and fast feeling, despite feeling smooth and dealing with road vibrations. Its not the lightest bike, but still feels quick. Whether this is the carbon , the Actiflex damper, the 28mm tires, or a combination of all three, it rides really nicely. With that said, I do slightly worry about the longevity of the damper - would be nice to see a long term durability test on it for a bit of peace of mind.
The components on the build I rode were exceptional and spec'd to match the Cento10ndr's frame quality - eTap, Mavic Cosmic Carbon SL wheels and Yksion Pro, Sram Red HRD disc brakes, all worked well. I personally would set it up tubeless and potentially with 30mm tires as it can fit that wide!
If you are considering a endurance bike that rides fast and have the versatility to build exactly how you want, look no further, the Cento10ndr is a top contender for you!

I really like the CentoNDR.
As an XC mountain bike racer, I've always felt caught out between hyper-racy aero bikes and endurance cruisers. Wilier recognized that that there are a lot of riders in my shoes. Maybe you used to race, so you've come to appreciate a snappy, light bike, but you've transcended the numbers game, and you want a bike that's as comfortable as a beanbag chair. I'd go so far as to say that many Dogma F10 riders would be better suited by a slightly less aggressive bike like the NDR. Will it slow you down? Not really. In the wind tunnel, the NDR is actually about as aerodynamic as the Cento10, Wilier's all-out-race-rig. On the flip side, the NDR features an elastomer insert at the joint of the seatstays which helps to smooth out the omnipresent chip seal that plagues almost every single real-world. Paired 28c tires, this bike really is very comfortable.
So, is this bike for you? Are you a Cat 1 roadie with 10 data fields on every page of your Garmin and a frequent customer card for the wind tunnel? Probably not. Are you a serious roadie that likes fast bikes, and appreciates refinement, but desires a level of comfort that most all-out race bikes just can't offer? I'd definitely consider it.
