    solid frame ... a few guys here at UCIrvine ride it on the track ... super solid company backed by some really great track riders as well! uses excellent aluminum and supplies a carbon fork...

    that specific frameset has very very clean welds and for a complete bike at $1k, you cant complain! i would say it's on par with the pista concepts and track pros at the moment.

    Good enough for Hoy, good enough for you.
    I ride with pants so tight that they're spandex.

    I've had one for about 5 years now, brilliant frame, well worth the money IMO

    Dolans are very, very solid. Extremely stiff frames, they transfer every watt of power to the ground. Quite a few pros and amateurs ride them very successfully.

    If you have the coin to spend on one, by all means, there aren't many race frames that are better.

    They cost lots more at Businesscycles. The complete bike is a nice deal over at Probikekit.
