This is a short review on my new road bike. My Fondriest TFZero had a crack in the seat tube so I was looking for a replacement. What I was looking for:
1. Classic lines
2. Racing geometry
3. Good handling
4. Easy maintenance
5. Value for money
I would like to send in my review of my Focus Izalco Max disc. Sorry I took a while because of recent biz travel.
I was somewhat skeptical of the adoption of disc road, especially a race bike. Disc road generally being heavier, comfort setup, disc brakes reliability and noise. I guess these are standard concerns to be an early adopter to road disc. I was contemplating between Tarmac disc and Izalco disc. Eventually I took the bite on Izalco because such a great value with semi Dura-ace setup in your shop. Gosh, I think I made the best bike purchase of the year. First ride immediately concluded the bike is indeed worthy labelled as disc bike of 2016.
Bought my first road bike here – a Focus Cayo AL. A very good and highly recommende
Very helpful and got a great bike fitting service. Cycled today for 4 hours and did not even feel any sore back or neck pain due to the spot on bike fitting. Was cycling at Changi Coast Road like a real racer.
Many thanks Paul for the excellent service.
Ultra-light with disc brake! Focus made its mark at the Eurobike 2015 with the Izalco Max Disc. With its frame weight of 790 g in size 54, it is one of the lightest racing bikes in the world, without any detriment to rigidity and comfort suspension. “In the future disc brakes will be considered indispensable in bicycle racing. Focus not only adopts this trend, but also breaks new ground in terms of weight, which renders the former disadvantages of disc brakes on racing bikes less significant,” reasoned the jury.
Seven jurors rated 500 new bike releases for 2016 and thus more bikes than ever before. The impressive models were assessed by Jens Klötzer (Tour Magazin), Karen Eller (Mountainbike Pro/Die Rasenmäher) and Daniel O. Fikuart (aktiv Radfahren), among others.
