Terry Dolan are a UK brand that are well respected for their quality and pedigree and in recent years have been known for their excellent track bikes.
Based in Lancashire they offer a range of bikes for all types of disciplines, with their ‘Hercules SL’ model offering a sporty, racy, yet comfortable ride.
This particular model is made from Toray carbon and as such is aimed at racing and fast sportive riding. The bike has a sloping top tube with large flared chainstays with internal cable routing.
Available either as a complete bike or as a frame only option we have custom built this bike using the best components that we feel compliment the bike. We have fitted the bike with a full Shimano 105 10 speed groupset with an Alpina alloy seatpost. Italian Deda finishing kit are used for the bars and stem.
To make the bike climb and sprint with extra verve we have fitted a pair of super trick Pro Lite Gavia wheels that are fitted with brand new Vittoria Rubino Pro tyres. Brand new ITM Pro bar tape and a new Selle Italia saddle complete the build. These wheels are both light and very cleverly laced using an alternative hub and intertwined spokes.
Having ridden the bike myself it offers both speed and comfort. You instantly know that you are riding something that is really nice.
Road Bike reviewers often gave the bike 4 or 5 stars out of 5.
The reviewers stated, “Lightweight, great ride that is fast & predictable” : “Amazing bike. Stiff as hell. Very fast and very stable, made with excellent carbon that offers a great ride over rough roads” : The final reviewer went on to say, ” What a great frameset. Comfortable and rock solid, that provides a very smooth ride”
It is difficult to value this model as we have custom built it using a variety of parts. The standard bike builds were often built with an array of different components, but as stated earlier we have built this bike with a good honest spec. We have matched all the parts on the bike to co-ordinate the complete spec. We have purposefully not over spec’d the bike, thus allowing it’s new owner to upgrade it to their own individual liking.
As with all of our bikes some of the parts we have used on the bike are new and some are secondhand. As with our higher-end refurbishments we spec the bike accordingly and always fit the bike with new bar tape, saddle and tyres.
The spec is as follows:
Dolan carbon frame and forks

Shimano 105 10 speed groupset

If you were to buy a similarly spec’d bike new you would require at least double the money that we are selling our bike for. This type of wheelset would only appear on a high end end bike in excess of £2,000. The components that we have used for the build emulate the overall quality of the bike and how we, as cyclists, would expect from such as build.
VIEWING IS RECOMMENDED TO APPRECIATE THE BIKE. IT ALSO OFFERS FANTASTIC VALUE AND A FRACTION OF THE COST OF A WHAT THIS TYPE OF BIKE WOULD COST NEW!
