I am selling off my 2014 Dolan l’Étape. Full specs below, but it has a Camagnolo Veloce (50/37, 11-28T) groupset, except the sprocket (Miche) and chain (SRAM). Furthermore, it has a Miche RX5 wheelset. I’ve never minded the wheels, but this would be my first upgrade if I were to keep the bike. I put Vredestein (my personal fave) 23mm tyres on. I'm posting this to road.cc first because I'd find it cruel to just sell it to the first random Gumtree person.



I’ve ridden it for 2,765 km (1,718 miles, that’s longer than two football fields) around Norfolk, where I lived when I bought it. Mostly in nice weather too, at least never between October and March, which is quite pathetic when you think about it and in direct violation of rules #5 and #9. I always gave it a clean after every ride and the bike has always lived inside. All in all, she looks and feels younger than she is and I’m 100% certain that she just needs some air and a drop of lube and she’ll be good to go. And that’s basically the main reason why I’m selling. Yep, she deserves someone who takes her out rather than just hanging on a wall in a small suburban-London flat. Also, besides the extra long seat post and 120mm stem it has always felt a bit small for me (I’m 6’3”).


The important bit

I live in Twickenham. Local pick-up only. Viewing and collection are only possible between Saturday 16th June and Wednesday the 20th. Any questions: email is probably fastest because I’ll be at a conference where WiFi is available but where being on the phone would be rude. But please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

P.s. I also have a Navad GPS with navigation available. Pretty much a Garmin rip-off. Working very well, just not great with a Mac. Anyway, accepting offers for it.

Just posting a few additions to the ad:

The bike is still available. i do take offers.

The tyres are Vredestein Fortezza TriComp. 

I also have the original seatpost (300mm I think) and the Vittorio Rubino tyres that came with it. Happy to toss them in.

I just gave the bike an inspection. Everything = smooth!

I marked the conditions as "light use", mostly just due some shoe scuff marks on the cranks. Things like cogs, chain, break pads, cables etc. are still excellent.
