Every now and then something absolutely amazing comes along. After 107 I decided I needed to find something to keep me riding. Step front and centre, my dream bike.
I have always been a huge admirer of FOCUS, their simplistic tubing, strong graphic style and the fact that they do not over-do the colour on the bikes greatly has always appealed to me. More than the style and look of them is that they simply fit me perfectly. I am yet to find another bike brand that I can feel so comfortable on, weather that is riding extra long distance, racing or mucking about with a few friends. It all makes a guge difference in what becomes the ultimate bike.
I have one major change to my Izalco Max, installing the Verve Infocrank powermeter. The Infocrank is known to be one of the most accurate power meters on the market, used and trusted by British Cycling and the UCI as well as athletes such as Elinor Barker.
