I was checking this bike out. Seems pretty cool. The 1.0 comes with a hammerschmidt!
Seems like a really cool spec.
Made in germany, which is a plus.
The project uses knuckle box suspension, which I have heard good things about.
Are these just rebranded Diamondbacks or something?
I am assuming the company licensed the technology from DB.
Pretty sure it is a new company since all I see are 2010 models on the website.
Anybody have any info on these?
Anybody test one at interbike this year?
One thing that really interests me about them is the bigger the bike is, the larger tubing they use. Most builders don't do that. I know Commencal does on some bikes.
This is of interest to me since I am a big guy.
Quoted from their site.
With the new Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) system the FOCUS engineers have come up with a real stroke of genius. Until now all aluminium frame sizes had the same tube dimensions but with SSPS the tube dimensions are exactly tailored to the size of the bike. This means that no matter how tall you are, whether 1.6m or 2.2m, your Focus bike has the same ideal ride quality with consistent rigidity, suspension and strength per size"
