    @cc99v

    I am 6' ish tall.
    I sort of followed the chatter in here on sizing.
    I went with a 56 but i don't intend to race the frame. I have a 60mm stem and riser bars on, i think i could have gone to a 58 as i will most likely only use risers, i think the longer headtube and top tube would suit me better as i use short stems.

    I briefly tried drops and longer stem but it was too racey for me. Part of the reason for going Dolan was frame price as a cheap way to see if i can cope with a track style frame.
    Handling is fast (i have the slightly more relaxed FXE with road fork) and i just prefer being more upright..........years of mountain biking........

    I went matt black, discreet stick on Dolan logos on fork and headtube, easy peel off.
    After seeing the coloured PC frames, i reckon Dolan are making more profit off the matt black as the finish is very cheap, but also very easy to touch up with a rattle can if need be.

    I had no choice but to blind buy via the internet, if you could sit on one for a quick spin that would be ideal. I think i would have gone 58 if i had.
    Still an easy sell on here if i change my mind, buy a 58 frame and just sell on the 56.

    Easily 30+ cabs on Sunday, St Pancs road ? the one with the Evans shop.

    We have trackers on works fleet, the new system counts engine idle time and records it, we just got our first "Leader Board" print out, up till now no one from management has mentioned what data the tracker records and the large vehicles don't have idle-stop mangement, the cars do, so start stop automatically.
    As it's kinda fresh in my head and a way to add a couple of percent to my score i have sort of taken notice of idle running vehicles around me.
    But factor in, how many black cabs, mini cabs, ubers and daily private coaches are sat around all day.........
    :) ban them, should clean things up a bit (impractical i know)

    An observation.

    Was in city on Sunday. Along embankment, loads of empty parked up non TFL private coachs all with engines running, drivers milling around smoking, drinking tea.

    Outside St Pancs/Kings Cross, empty taxis, parked up, pretty much all with engines running.

    Good mod that is.
    Trying to find a nice way to carry my S4 Evo standard Krypto, at the moment it sits nicely on the rear rack, but gets in the way of bottle cages if carried in the front triangle.

    Might like to take the rack off in the summer so looking into "hanging" the boat anchor elsewhere.

    @GA2G not a primary but this must be a contender for Secondarys, 14mm shackle, double deadlock, kryptonitelock.com/content/kr­yt-us/en/products/product-information/cu­rrent-key/001010.html

    Had a gossip with Alpkit.

    They still have some Fu-Manchu's
    They didn't piss off Jones, he wasn't worried about it apparantly. Joneses distributor wasn't overly happy at competition. So rather than cause a fuss Alpkit just changed the design.

    I didn't buy the bars but i did grab a multi tool from them.
