For 740 you get a Ridley Crosswind with an Python front fork. I think that's a better deal

So you think a frameset that costs more and a brand that everybody rides on nowadays is a better deal?

i think boogie means that you know that the 4za fork is very good and the alu frame is a good value and of these two we've never heard breaking issues(compared to all those x-nights...)
the focus looks good, but no one knows the weight(i asked mike kluge, he didn't know, either), and the geometry is kind of different with a very short headtube. the only good athlete who's riding focus is hanka kupfernagel, but she sort of has to because she's the girlfriend of mike kluge, who was focus-owner and still has his hands deep in there(i mean in the bike company 8) )

For my opinion the weight of the Focus Team Cross is about 1.650 gr.

You said I you know a better frame at the same price tell me. I think that the front fork is better. Many people rides it without problems. You got a point that every has that frame, but you can choose by Ridley the paintscheme you want (without paying extra at many designs)

i'm relatively new to CX, but if you are loking for a weight/cost benefit frame the Van Tuyl VT430 is 1520gms in a 57 and is probably about 400 Euro. It seems to ride pretty well.

You mean I guess a VT340. I had one and that broke and that wasn't the first one.
