I just picked this up from a forum member. I haven't gotten to take it outside yet but I can't wait. Still need bottle cages but it's pretty much done. 6.3kg as pictured.

Sorry, but a Canondale crank on a Focus just seems wrong to me.
Otherwise, it's a nice bike. The paintjob reminds me a bit of BMC's TRC01 from back in the days.

Cannondale cranks look great on any BB30 frame. I do think black ano would look better then polished though.

I'm not saying the SL crank are bad.
On this Focus or i general? Sorry, but this is a stupid conversation.

Nice build. If I had the means I think a Focus would be my next bike of choice. Something about them just does it for me.

I second JMilliron's thoughts on getting those Canondale Cranks anodized black.

Otherwise, nice. Who did you buy it from? :wink:

I'd get black cranks but I bought the frameset and crankset together from hasbeen. I might end up switching them out though. I normally ride 170s and these are 172.5s. I've only had a brief trainer ride on them but I'm not sure that I could get used to the extra length.
