    Bit hard to identify a generic carbon frame thats at least 8 years old tbh!
    Probably a deda frame that dolan used.

    I have a Dolan winter bike that I went to his old place in Liverpool to be measured for etc.
    I met Terry Dolan,infact he fitted the bike for me and tbh he is a bit of a colourful character.So to be honest this bike could be any old thing sprayed up or it could be a cutting edge frame of its time.
    Nice looking bike though even by todays standards.

    My suggestion is rather obvious unfortunately - why not ask Dolan?
  • Thanks for the efforts guys, I'll have a go at asking Dolan! I wasn't trying to sound a jerk with the earlier post, was kind of hoping you guys would enjoy the challenge.

    Thanks anyway.

    Know nothing of the bike, just ask Dolan, I'm sure they'll be able to help.

    But I can tell you about the rider with the bike. In fact, I'll ask him today if he knows what the model was.

    i don't know, but if you find the guy on the left of the photo I'd say it was his judging by how nicely his kit matches the bike so he should be able to tell you.

  • Thanks again guys, Dolan promptly got back to me, telling me it's an Excalibur model! Guess its pretty hard to find one in that colourway.

    Be good to hear what your friend in the picture says.

    Thanks.

    It's one of their terrible off the shelf Asian catalogue carbon frames. Well..they're all that type of frame actually. Sorry that doesn't really help, it's just a cheap dig I couldn't resist.

    He's not around at the moment to ask. But the rider (as it says below the pic) is Adam Bonser. Him and his brother Ryan used to race together on the development programme. Now they're both top quality race mechanics. Adam works for GB as a race mechanic (pic below with Richard from Pedal Precision) and Ryan works with Sky as a race mechanic.
