Hello,
I finally found good deal for the bike, which my heart accept. I am replacing my Pells R6 (http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=73849&hilit=pells) with Focus.

I bought the frameset Focus Izalco Expert from the ebay, still waiting for it, but pictures are here :

I will try to get full built list including weights. Most of the parts would go from Pells (pedals DA7900, handlebars Ritchey Carbon Evolution SL, Ultegra 6700 shifters, Sram Rival brakes,..). I have to buy the stem (100mm) and FD & RD (DA7900).
Uptade later :)

And the frame is 1180g.

I know, it is not really a weenie. But the frame is beautiful, very clean.

Finished the build today and I rode 160 km. I am surprised that the bike is very similiar to my previous Pells. Many components are the same (wheels, saddle, handlebars, cranks, ..) and the difference is frame and fork, FD and RD.
Enjoy the picture :)

My first upgrade will probably be seatpost clamp (this one is 30g).

Seatpost cut, now under 200g, and new seatpost clamp installed (KCNC, 11g). After I sell my Merida CX bike, carbon frame under 1kg or wheels AC420, I am going to buy new wheels. At my 54kg, I am going to find some low profile light wheelset, but do not know yet, tubular or clincher ? Or maybe this : http://www.tufo.com/tubular-clinchers/ ?
Wheels will be used only in races.

nice looking frame. used to have a focus izalco from 2007 but your looks nicer i think.

clinchers or tubulars? depends who you ask.
for me it would be tubulars but this is not the simplest option.

I've always been a fan of whoever is designing the graphics for Focus' frames. Very well executed.

I always like the FOCUS frames. I am blaming this on cyclingblogtips.

New crankset arrived today - Sram Red BB30 (53-39, 170mm, new). Saved weight : 78g on the crankset (FSA K-Force Light Megaexo 53-39, 172,5 with BB are at 770g, Sram at 692g) + inserts in the frame (I hope cca 30-40g).
