Regardless, the geometry is a bit more relaxed (slightly more upright). Unfortunately they only offer two trim levels now, with the least expensive being 2300-2400 depending on the country you buy it in. But, if you can find an Izalco Race (no longer listed on their website), you may be able to find a Paralane.
I'm located Istanbul/Turkey. Due to covid pandemic situation it's really hard to find bikes on the market. That's why I 'm stuck on Focus Izalco Race M frame size. Currently only bike on Focus dealers is Izalco Race or old Cayo. Maybe I've chance to find Scott Addict 20 but Focus offers more hardware and frame quality than Addict 20 at same price range.
