  • frame returned to ADR - waiting for the refund.

    they admitted that the frame doesnt work very well with Campagnolo Pista ...

    will update later on the progress

  • OK, refund received from ADR.

    have to give them a credit for 'eventually' testing it themselves and admitting that the frame doesnt work with Campagnolo Record PIsta.

    in my view all too little and too late but better late than never.

    loads of people are very happy with their frames - especially TT meaning they must be decent.

    However I have spotted a guy on the Reading Velodrome riding one of ADR frames and had a chat. What he said is that he is 'fairly' happy with the frame but wouldnt buy it again.

    Lesson? yes, stick to big names even if they cost more.

    So, what have you done with the money? Beer and fags, or Dolan DF4?

    Waiting for a deal on df3.

    1.dolan would be introducing df4 soon
    2.my racing season is over now

    All in all waiting for a good deal...

  • oh, glad I've checked this thread, was just looking at adr frames, after seeing one at the masters.

  • Waiting for a deal on df3.

    What size are you after? Workmate is selling a 57.

  • There were at least three in the Masters. One I believe won 44-45 scratch? Or at least the rider did.

    Mine is sitting in a box in my dining room waiting to be built for the last few weeks so I'll report back when it's together.

  • looking for 51cm or 52.5cm but ideally 51cm I think.

  • What you looking to do?

  • Sick skids?

  • Race. Brrrrr

  • you can order DF4's now if you send them an email
    £1250

  • That's not too bad considering the DF3 is £999.

  • not sure what would I be paying more for - that ordering DF4 rather than DF3...

    apart from marketing trick are they better?

  • are they better?

    Depends how you define 'better'. Will it make your times better? Probably not unless you are already competing at a high level.

  • theres no marketing trick, it probably uses an newer carbon fibre layup. steel was still being 'upgraded' in the 80's and 90's

    Ive always wondered why Look pro track frames always use fancy 'blocky' unaero stems, considering the effort they put into everything else

  • :)
    suspect Dolan doesnt have to do marketing tricks anyway.

    Ill get mine when the price is right :)

  • Dolan discounted DF3 to £700 (no seat post though) - not defected just clearance.

    Be quick if you want one there are only few

  • Damn short people get all the deals.

  • 55

  • 55 which is available should be ok for one as tall as 6' with easy... I think

  • 55 which is available should be ok for one as tall as 6' with easy... I think

    Yup - I rode DF3 55 and I am 6' - total around 8.000km road.

  • Damn short people get all the deals.

    And tall people with poor flexibility and silly upright riding positions who buy sprint frames to ride on the road, them too.
