Focus Bikes

Postby SBW on Tue 28/Apr/15 10:47am

Hi all,

I'm looking at dipping my toes into racing and I'm looking at carbon hardtails.

There seems to be a couple of good deals on Focus Raven 29Rs at the moment.

Has anyone had any experience with this brand??

Only browsing because I don't have any bike budget ... they are really nice bikes. If I had some dollars the mares cross bike would be hanging in my shed.

I got a Focus Raven 1.0, almost 2 years ago. Was 'half price' but more genuine than some sales...think paid just under 3k. The drive chain is XT, where seems most are SRAM these days.

I'm not a racer but was looking for a hardtail 29er. I've found it a nice bike, with some nice touches, such as internal cabling. 'My other bike' is a giant trance, so obviously felt a lot more aggressive. I haven't ridden enough bikes to know how good vs others. But was good value for money compared with others at the time.

The other good thing is that it is something different. Not a Trek, Giant, Merida or Specialised. :)

If you are in the Lower South Island, you are welcome to borrow.
