Hi There.

Currently looking at a number of frames - Are The Focus frames/bikes any good

The Izalco looks a nice frame.

    I have both the Variado and the Cayo and I'm very pleased with both of them...

    i have an izalco, absolutely cracking frame. fast, responsive, light.. all my power is used properly. Looks good and is kitted out well... fulcrum wheels, full dura ace groupo, selle italia seat, ritchey carbon finishing kit.

    love my bike :)

    I also have an Izalco, considering it is the same frame geometry as my Cayo I didn't think there would be much difference, but there is.

    As said above Light, responsive and stiff (but not uncomfortable) My one is kitted out with Sram red and Cosmic Carbone SLR wheels, looks well nice

    Very pleased with the Izalco, money well spent

    My Cayo is also a good bike, but a little bit heavier and not quite as responsive, however people who have ridden have been impressed.

    the BB is really really solid compared to the cayo and i think the super thin seatstays really help keep it comfortable but stuff. Also the front end has a tapered headtube which really keeps it planted/solid for descending.

    the internal cable routing is lovely, but i found it a paint when replacing the cables.
