Terry Dolan 56cm steel road bike w.Dura-Ace/ Ultegra mix.

Size 56cm (bb to top of seat tube). Suits 5'10" to 6' tall. Top tube 55cm c-t-c.
9 speed chainset. 1" steerer.

Frame is triple butted Deddacciai EOM steel tubing. Made around '03-'05. Front fork is a newer carbon with 1" alloy steerer (original was all steel). As seen in pictures, I disassembled it, fully cleaned everything and lovingly rebuilt it.

It rides very comfortably with the classic steel 'springy' lively feel (more comfy than a Canyon Ultimate CF). Pretty aero compared to modern oversized carbon frames and the geometry naturally settles the rider into quite a race position. It eats the miles on a gusty Spring/ Autumn day and comfy for those 3+ hr rides to build base fitness. The fork rake gives it a sportive-like steady steering (not twitchy), but the frame begs to be pushed.
I'm having second thoughts about selling after writing the above!

Terry Dolan company said this about a very similar frame:
"We had this particular frame manufactured in Italy and then painted at our paint shop here in the UK.
The EOM 16.5 was the best tubing that Dedacciai manufactured used by Bianchi Pinarello etc for their Pro Teams before the moved on to the lighter Aluminium tubeset's such as SC61 Scandium and now Carbon frames.
I hope this shed's some light on your bike it still looks great by the way a very unique frame."
