As I was short on options and time, I went ahead with a build based around the Dolan multi-cross frame and I have to say I'm really pleased with it.
Frame finish is nice (aside from the weird placement of the chainstay protectors which are on the side and not on the top of stays - weird). Fork is noticeably stiffer than my old frame but the ride quality was great. I really had no complaints in the first race I used it in; handled well, easy to carry over barriers, no noticeable flex around the BB etc.
So one race in, I really like this frame.
(Disclaimer: not using the stock seatpost which may make some difference, but am using clinchers).
