    A questions for Focus Cayo Evo owners (2013)

    This is crossposted from WW, but I figured their might be more Cayo owners here than there (mostly Izalcos). Anyway, I'm looking at getting either a 4.0 or 5.0. Focus doesn't get too specific with the specs, but it's evident that the 5.0 has a lower-end fork compared to the 4.0 ("Focus Carbon" vs "Cayo evo T4 carbon" plus shape differences). Can anyone here confirm whether the 5.0 fork has a carbon steerer?

    Also, I'd be able to get the 4.0 for about $200 more than the 5.0. Crank and saddle aside, would it be worth it for the T4 fork and Ultegra brakes?

    FWIW, I contacted a Focus dealer in the UK who had a blurb on their website about a difference between the forks. The 5.0/6.0 does have a carbon steerer tube, but weighs more than the 4.0+ series. They stated that the "T4 Carbon fork" (4.0) weighs ~338g with the expander plug, but hadn't yet weighed the 5.0/6.0 fork.
