Dolan Bikes Ltd - Brand history

Dolan Bikes in the North West have a large variety of racing and sportive bikes for those riding on or off the road.

Dolan learned from a master and when Chris Boardman was a junior, it was Dolan providing bikes for the future Olympic champion. The frames used by the GB team pursuit squad in Barcelona (92) were Dolan™s and Yvonne McGregor won an Olympic Bronze medal in Sydney 2000 and a UCI World title on a Dolan in 2000. The accolades for the bike go on like Rob Hayles and Bradley Wiggins riding Six Day Madison events on them and in 2003 Bradley Wiggins won the unofficial world cup of Madison racing, the Gent Six, with Matthew Gilmore, on a custom aluminium frame.

They are a special frame. Not just because of Terry's experience but also the feedback from riders like Sir Chris Hoy and Craig MacLean during the days when Dolan supplied his bikes to Team GB. Now, the GB team ride the black bikes called the UK SI but even they have had the Dolan touch with Terry helping out with the geometry of them during their design days.

So, while the world look on with envy at the UK SI bikes that the British team continued to rack up wins on, the top of the range Dolans are available for a fraction of the price. These days, there are five track frames to choose from in the Dolan range, three made out of aluminium and two from carbon. There is also the Kadet track bike for children. It is also worth noting that Dolan produce the Alpina Forks and Seatposts and also a rather special narrow handlebar with a width of only 33cm for an aerodynamic position on the bike.
