Founded in 1992 by former Cyclo Cross World Champion Mike Kluge, these German made bikes are designed by racers for racers. It is always nice to build a bike that is well thought out, something that bicycle engineers take for granted. Many brands simply do a CAD drawing, run some computer simulations and start pumping them out. I don’t know how many times I have worked on a bike of some major brand where changing a simple internally routed cable took 20 minutes, a flashlight, and a bent spoke.
Focus is the opposite, internal sleeves for the cables making a cable change easy. Frames that actually fit a 25 mm tire, yes people run 25’s. Everything goes together nice and easy with no bloody knuckles or cursing. I am sure the mechanics of AG2R love working on the Focus bikes as much as do I.
For 2015 Pro team AG2R will be riding the same Izalco frames that are on our showroom. You will see them in the Classics and in the Grand Tours. If Cross is your more your foray then you will appreciate Mr. Jeremy Powers exerting his dominance on the International Cross scene.
Focus bikes available exclusively at PRW.
