    Custom built 2011 Focus Izalco Pro

    Just built myself a Focus Izalco Pro... Have to say this is astoundingly better than my Trek 2.1... Wasn't convinced with the whole carbon frame thing until now...

    Bike was fully built at home... XXL frame size, weighing in at 16.3 lbs loaded

    Looks like it's time to change your sig then ;). Be safe out there and have fun, that's the whole point! Hopefully you don't have to stay on that trainer too long.

    Thanks.. And yes I do need to update that. Being in Michigan the weather is spotty... This won't see action until the salt is gone.... I still have the trusty 'B' bike (trek) for those nasty winter rides.

    Nice bike.

    Just wonder in what ways it's astoundingly better than the 2.1, if it hasn't seen any action yet?

    j/k

    Custom built 2011 Focus Izalco Pro

    It saw some wet nasty action the day after the build was complete. We had an anomaly here the other week in Michigan... 65 degree day in January..

    Ride quality, stiffness, handling and of course weight make this great. Don't get me wrong I still have a weak spot for my Trek... It was my first bike.

    Here's a taste at what I have going:
    - 2011 Focus Izalco Pro with 3T Funda fork - size XXL (60cm)
    - Easton EC90 46mm handlebar
    - Easton EC90 110mm stem
    - FSA SLK 350mm seatpost (still hunting for EC90 350mm 27.2 setback)
    - SRAM Force Shifters (2010)
    - SRAM Force WiFli rear derailleur (2012)
    - SRAM Force braze on front derailleur (2012)
    - SRAM Force brake set (2012)
    - SRAM Force 175mm 53/39 BB30 crankset (2010)
    - FSA steel road BB30 bottom bracket
    - Shimano Dura Ace 7900 chain
    - Shimano Ultrgra 6700 11-25 or 11-28 cassette (soon to also have a SRAM 1070 11-32)
    - FSA headset with SRAM carbon spacers (stock)
    - Lizard Skin DPS 1.8 bar tape
    - Yokozuna Reaction Cable Kit in white
    - LOOK Keo 2 Max carbon pedals
    - Specialized Romin Pro carbon saddle
    - 2 x Chinese knockoff carbon bontrager XXX lite bottle cages
    - AEST titanium skewer set
    - Easton EA70 wheels
    - Michelin Pro4 Service Course
    - standard weight tubes
