    Focus bikes

    I've never even heard of the brand Focus before until I ran across them on the website below. They have the exact same design as the DB bikes, except they look sexier, IMO. Are these actually owned by DB, or are they a completely different brand?

    I've just been doing some research on these. From what I gather so far, Focus is owned by Derby, and Derby has an ownership stake in Raleigh ,and Raleigh owns Diamondback. Something like that. I've been looking at the Focus Project 3.0, and it's the same bike as the Mission 3.0, just under a different brand.

    Looks like they are using the mission and sortie frames for a few models. Too bad DB doesn't take the Focus high end hard tail and re-badge it. DB needs a nice hight end hardtail in the line up.
