Submitted by helgiberg a Downhiller from Reykjavík, Iceland.

Date Reviewed: November 17, 2011

Strengths:    Amazing weigth - only 8,7kg (With out pedals)
Frame is so stiff and responsive but yet has flexy seatstays that give more comfort and grip.
BB30 really makes sense when you try this bike.
Dt 1350, 1300gr carbon rims make it go like a rocket and maintain stiffness in corners.

Weaknesses:    XX rear derailleur had a deffected lower chain wheel and it wore out pretty fast.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is fast!
Brakes well and steers perfect.
Frame treats you well on long rides and gives good grip on climbs.
I love it, will miss it and am only selling it to get the 2012 model in 29".
Awesome design Focus!
