Here is my Focus Cayo 105 with a few upgrades. Just needs a chain, the rear mech setting up and the steerer tube shortening.

  • Thanks, See your from Newmarket. I live in Kedington near Haverhill.
  • Wow! i've never seen proper photos of the 09 cayo, it looks really good in the....carbon
    The only reason i was put off one was simply because it was last years model, which was a bit silly of me.

    How much is remaining from the original spec ?
    Just looked at Wiggle and it seems you only have frame, forks, post, brakes, sti's and headset.
    Good work - you can't have had it that long being an 09 and the pimping is out of control !
    I got a Cayo Campa at the end of August and all that remains is frame, forks, post, headset and groupset. Just gotta get myself a Thomson post to match the stem and then I can post a picture and start looking for a new bike !

  • Hi Stubee

    Will pm you when the weather gets a bit better. I am a bit of a fair weather road rider but use the mtb all year round. I have just got back from a 30mile ride in the cold and dark but feel better for it.
  • Hi Galatzo

    Only got the cayo two weeks ago. I first planned to build up a Planet X carbon frame using parts of my old bike and some new ultegra sl parts i had. Anyway i returned the Planet X frame because the quality and finish of the one i got wasnt up to much. I have changed the wheels, bars, stem, f and r mech, chainset, cassette and saddle. This may be a bit over the top but i had the bits ready for a frame plus i will sell all the spare part so i shouldnt be to out of pocket.

    I will post some more picks once its complete.
  • nice bike, a team mate has got it in the Milram colours with SRAM Rival and they look quality in the flesh.

    Have you upgraded to Ultegra or planning on upgrading from Ultegra?
  • I have upgraded the front and rear mech from 105 to Ultegra SL as i had them already. I changed the FSA 50 34 chanset to an Ultegra SL 53 39 as i wanted a larger chain ring. Not sure if i will bother changing the 105 shifters or brakes as i dont think i will see the benefits.

    Have you notice any difference between the 105 and Ultegra RD ?
    Shazam !!
  • I changed the RD before i used the bike as i wanted a short cage so i cant compare function wise. Its a little lighter and a looks great in the grey finish. I have also changed the FD from 105 to Ultegra Sl which was a waste of time as i cant see much difference apart from the colour and a few screws.
  • It is also abit lighter mate and a it crisper if you have it set up perfectly

    Yes a nice bike indeed. Actually I wouldn't cut down the steerer, looks fine how it is and allows for a bit of room for adjustment if you ever need it.

    Have read the Focus can be a bit harsh. How are you finding it comfort wise?
