New Focus?

Thinking of selling this:



for this:
@1240gr for a 50cm, it's not the lightest but it has tapered steerer and BB30.

Whew, I think I've talked myself out of it. It'll be hard to resist the Performance double points weekend though.

Personally I think a Jamis Xenith SL at nearly 400 grams lighter would be a better buy.

I like the Focus. I don't know what I like about Focuses, maybe it's the huge logo on the downtube, but I think even the entry level Focuses look great.

That's just it. I'm a sucker for good looking (to me) bike. The one that I thought was my size at Performance was actually one size too big. Saved.

Do you have a line on more Jamis frames?
