Got my new +1 on c2w great service from Dolan and Parcel Force . 7 day build , 2 day delivery spot on no problems.
O ye got the l 'Etape Shimano 6800 . I have been riding a Kona Jake CX 2012 from evans as a commuter bike love it.
changed the tyres to 28 gators slick , wow what a difference.
Now the Dolan arrived in box perfect .Opened box sorted handle bars and stems , seat etc. . fitted pedals no problems. took it to work 4 miles loads of vibration I wasn't expecting. Carbon bikes so smooth ! Worse than my jake,
Got back home 4 miles . Put bike on stand and tightened everything , Head stock loose lifted front wheel and loads of play. tightened it up . Joy so light , responsive SMILES ALL THE WAY.
Impatient took over and piss taking from the wife took it out this morning for 20m at 08:30 came off on un treated road , such fun, Scratched the new bike B-ll-cks and stuff like that . Love the bike ,saddle ok . I got a b17 on jake .
Done about 50m so far . I am 52 20 stone look at picture . I'm loving it , get out there .

Nice.
Did you top up or does your scheme go over the1k limit as the bike is 1299?
Don't Dolan charge a 10-12% admin fee? How's that work as I like Dolans but any bike I would have new would be halfords c2 w , yeah right the wife's gonna let me have a new one .
