Sorry to dredge an older thread,

Am waiting on a replacement for my 2012 inc 2 so doing some shopping/research

I'm in NZ so the Focus seems to be a little hard to come by, but keen to know how it compares dollar wise to the 2013 inc2?

and is there anywhere with complete specs for them, the focus site seems a little light on details. Do they ship with blue tyres as per their site?

I have had a belt for 9 months and will not go back to a chain for my daily commute. temporarily on a melvern star MTB with chunky "slicks" I have borrowed from a mate. Cant wait to get back on one of my own

What size is your bike and what's your height and inseam lenght? I'm too thinking about getting either Bad Boy or Planet TR.

I was also looking into getting a commuter but finally decided on a road bike. The giant roam xr1 looked very good. Avid hydro brakes and slx groupset i think. Its worth a look
