Hi, I have the opportunity to acquire a Focus Izalco 2 Team SL 2014 model with SRAM Red 22 from a friend that is being posted overseas with work (to Africa for 18 months ).
The bike is perfect less than 100 dry autumn miles from new. I am in the market for a new bike but don't know much about Focus or SRAM. The bike is a good fit and I have ridden it and liked the feel of it. I have a decent budget and was in the market for, but have not yet ridden, a cannondale Synapse, Giant Defy Advanced SL, Cervelo R3 'sportive' type bike. To me the Focus is more an 'out and out' racer type of bike and will not be as comfortable as any of the above. Am I right or wrong and any comments good or bad about the Focus.
