  1. 9/10 "It has the humbling feeling of a top race bike and you silently apologise for not using its full berg-flattening, cobble-smashing potential!"
  2. 4/5 "The frame and fork handle pedal forces and power transfer admirably, there’s just the right amount of response under acceleration with no undue flex or wandering at the front end."

After retiring from work decided to buy a carbon frame for the first time.After a lot of searching decided on the Ares SL.The quality of build and finish is superb,and I built it up with a 105 group set.The first ride was a revelation,so stiff and fast yet not uncomfortable and it looks wonderful.If you are looking for a carbon frame support a British company and buy this. Superb (Posted on 04/01/2015)

Had this bike for just under 3 years now, couldn't fault it. Sram force shifters do their job and the ksyrium wheels are light and fast (Posted on 28/07/2014)

After looking at every model of bike and reading 100's of reviews I decided to travel the 2 hours up the M6 to take a look at the Dolan's. I wasn't disappointed. After getting measured up I placed the order the next day online. I went with SRAM force and magic askiums. Everyone says how nice it is and its improved my ride times massively!
Don't pay over the odds for a big name brands. Get to Dolan and have a look.

I am one happy cyclist. Thanks (Posted on 28/01/2014)

I decided to purchase a Dolan bike as I wanted to support a local family run bike building company. I chose a ares sl with help from the very informative and helpful staff equipped with Sram Red 22 and Mavic R-SYS SLR wheels. After riding the bike for 4 months I only have good things to say about it. The frame is very stiff and responsive but rides very comfortable on all road terrains. It seems to corner and descend like its rails planted and safe. I have rode a good few high end bikes including a top Italian bike manufacturer which starts with a K and I can honestly say this is by far the best overall package and value second to none I have ever rode. It makes an average cyclist like me feel as though I could compete in the TOUR DE FRANCE.
Bravo Regards Marco (Posted on 04/10/2013)
