    I was just about to say exactly this before I scrolled down and saw your post :lol:

    Ridley, but I am biased as I own 2

    I'd say Dolan, I don't know if it has the panache to pull off Campag though :/

    Dolan, but I'd have black handlebar tape. Each to their own though. Both great bikes.

    Liking the results as im going to pick up my New Dolan Ares next week.Chose the new Fluo green/white/black or rather my wife did.Trust me to take her along as I was going to go for the red etc.
    Found it strange that Terry Dolan only has one type of bar in stock though.Ive sourced my own bars,stem,tyres and saddle.Cant wait to ride it.

    Chunky looking downtube on that Dolan!

    Have you ridden it? Interested to see how it compares as I have the same bike as you, even down to the Quattros.

    ive ridden the dolan a little bit but my brother has longer legs than me and i dont like messing with his saddle position, it is different to the ridley, he also finds a big difference between the 2. hard to say what it is with so little mileage done on the dolan. i love the ridley now but it took some getting used to much stiffer than my old fuji carbon. have to say i found the stock 4za wheels terrible and put on old shiman 500 which i felt were better, love the quattros for the money 225 euro

    The Dolan - but only because of the Ridley forks which just look odd to me.

    Ridley although I agree it should have black forks

    I like the forks but reckon they need some other white finishing kit to match.
