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.
