I gave up waiting for Focus to get their s*%t together and ended up buying a 2014 Giant TXC Advanced 0.

I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting but whatever it was has certainly been exceeded. Excellent bike. Is it for everybody? No. Is it twice as good than a focus that was going to be half the price? Yes, easily.

Noice! Between the Adv 0 or 1 any punter is going to be a happy camper!

Perhaps a little excessive, but I'v had my eye on one of these as a wet weather throw-around commuter type bike...

There is one in my size at a local dealer (but I dont think there can be many left, or can be ordered). The missus is not yet onboard, but if it doesnt sell in the next little while, I might throw a cheeky offer out there. I havent seen anything newer from Focus though?

Didnt realise that these had come down by quite so much, so this could also be an option.

Definitely want something with Hyd-Disks though... Which brings up a point. Given I wont be doing any actual Cyclocross riding, If I can hold off through this winter and wait to see what Disk Brake Roadies come out (Defy around the same price etc.), then maybe that'd be a better option for what I am looking for, for next winter? The CX type bikes seem pretty heavy to me, in comparison.

Focus cayo 4.0 disc (sram rival) and cayo 3.0 disc (mech ultegra) will be released in august. Both should be great options with hydraulic disc
