After deliberating for several months now about a new training bike my wife saw a picture of the Dolan Ares sl and she said,thats it,you must have it.So,off to Terry Dolans place tomorrow to view one en route to a week away in the lakes.
Looking at the green or red one with Ultegra 6800 with cosmic Carbones.
Yahoo,cant wait!
Now I will have to sell my Ribble 7005 sl to pay for it.
Looking forward to the trip to Merseyside.


  • Saw a green one in the flesh recently, really really nice bike.
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
  • Just make sure you check the geometry of the Ares- they're a bit "different", to most other brands, but the. If your visiting the place yourself then I'm sure they'll do you a fitting.

    Yes,you are right Pickled pig.
    No excuses there ,I should know better as I even though I live in East Yorkshire now I am from Orrell which is only 10 miles up the road.
    I liked the Green one but it seems that they are discountinued in that colour and only have limited sizes left.According to Dolan,s sizing I will need the 54cm and that's size is out of stock in the green.
    They do have a new Fluro green but im not sure on that.Will have to see it in the flesh later today.
