in general, what do you all think of Focus bikes? the spec seems quite good.
Terrible paint jobs, though!
Ask StevenB he nearly bought one of their top of the range jobies. But then changed his mind and bought an utterly gorgeous BMC.
Focus remind me of VolksWagens, very well engineered german precision and all that, but very little soul and zero flair
Mechanicaly and technicaly though i dont think you could fault em.
Some people like them but I think there are better looking bikes around although I've not ridden one so can't make a fair comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I was given one, I'd not be complaining, I'd be exceedingly grateful!
They're great bikes - I have a Focus Variado Expert which is now used as a winter trainer, it's been fantastic and was such great VFM. Quite like the paintjob as well! It's not a patch on the Pinarello but for £800 I don't think you can buy better.
I've seen them in action and also had a real good look at one.
Good bikes, good on price, but I feel the carbon fibre frames are a little on heavy side
'Eat my dust' has a focus bike...he might be along to offer his opinion or maybe you could PM him.
My wife doesn't like the big FOCUS on the dowtube and has suggested the Orbea Onix instead!
that's a "no" then? LOL
