Focus urban bicycles
Posted on August 09 2015
It's not often that we add a new brand of bicycles to our range, but as an independent bicycle shop we're always looking for the best bikes we can offer. We've had our eye on Focus bikes for some time - they're uncommonly well-designed bikes that are targeted squarely at city riders.
We'll be stocking three models. They all have lightweight aluminium frames, self-adjusting hydraulic disc brakes, slick wide tyres, and good quality components throughout. They're light fast bikes, but the wheels don't have some silly lacing-pattern that will have you breaking spokes all the time. They look great too, but best of all, they're so much fun to ride!
The Focus Planet 3.0 Plus is our pick for the most popular bike:
It features Shimano hydraulic discs, Shimano rear hub, comfortable swept-back handlebars, 27-speed gear system. That alone would make it a fantastic bicycle, but it has mudguards with inbuild LED lights which are powered by the front hub. Hub dynamo systems retail for over $450, so at $1399 this bike is incredible value.
The Focus Planet 1.0 Belt is the ultimate low-maintenance bicycle:
The belt drive system with internal hub gears means that there's no regular maintenance to be done - you don't need to clean or oil the belt, and it won't stretch. You can also ride in trousers or a dress and not worry about getting oil on them. $1599.
The Focus Planet 4.0 is the entry-level model, but it's leagues above most of the bikes people are riding:
With a 20-speed gear system, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and slick tyres, it's a light and fast city bike. $1099.
All three of these bicycles are available in our shop for test rides, so drop down and check them out!
