    I'd love one of these, but my bank balance (and my marriage) wouldn't stand the strain...still an absolute beauty to look at...DROOL.:wub:.

    I love the orange and red Focus Mares, not so much the Rapha baby pink version though ;) It doesn't put me off in the slightest that I suspect most people would absolutely hate such a garish colourscheme :smile:

    Looks are of zero consequence. Does it do the job well, reliable, light, good handling? Any of the three are far more use than a pretty paint job. Just a clean, well maintained, light, tough,functional bike.

    This would have to be my choice, perhaps not pretty but masculine and workmanlike Crossberg2013Gray1.jpg

    Not pretty at all in my book. Dull as dishwater with an out of place taping job.

    I can't work out who makes it either. Perhaps they should have put some branding on there? :whistle:

    I think it looks pretty good, other than the white stem. Could do with slightly less branding too in an ideal world, but given it is a team bike, and the sponsors naturally want their brand noticed it is to be expected, but otherwise, I like it.

    Nice bike.... I have the same, I'm about to put some different wheels and disc brakes on mine.
    It's a great looking machine.
