Focus road bikes to buy or not to buy?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Focus road bikes to buy or not to buy?

https://www.focus-bikes.de/englisch_n...kategorie=road

I am in the market for a new road bike, I was wondering if ayone has had any expriences of the Focus range of bikes, on first impressions and from trawling the internet for magazine reviews etc, they seem very good for the money.

Agreed, the ad in Pro-cycling makes them look sweet. I know nothing else about them.

Just FYI, the link in the OP is dead for me; I had to go to Google to see them. They do look pretty.

AFAIK, they are pretty big in Europe and this is their first year importing into the US. Quality stuff from what I've heard.

Probably because a 2.5 year old thread has been dug up.

Edit: some nice photos of Focus bikes here:
