Welcome aboard. If your bike's as nice as your brother's, you'll be fine. Very nice build, but you need to weigh it.

Great looking bike!
What model wheels are those? I've never seen Mavics with that type of carbon layup.

Ah, I saw "Mavic tubs", so I assumed that meant "Mavic tubular wheels". I didn't read carefully enough.

Nice. Aesthetically I usually don't like Focus bikes. This one works. Nice job.

The powerlink is a rear tire. Do you have two power links or is the grip link on the back?

Thanks for the response gents, as said earlier its my bro's bike. It measures up as a 56 but is a size large according to focus. He is bang on 6ft. Regarding the tyres, wow, he and i did not know they were specific, not even sure if he got a pair or 2 rears :oops: . Glued on now as well! will have to get him to check. Funny how weigh weenies have the keenest eyes, i have handled these and not noticed :lol: . Cheers
