Apparently some other colours get the treatment too.


Not sure if it's exactly the same stuff, but I just bought my daughter a ~2017 Liv Alight 2 City. On first glance on a cloudy day it looked like a dark brownish colour, but in better sunlight it's an olive greenish colour with some gold sparkle in it. She loves it. It's a subtle effect but quite snazzy up close, without being gaudy from far away (I like gaudy personally :D

so im looking for a lightweight disc bike
im tossing up and undecided between

TCR advanced SL 1
Focus Izalco Max

anyone ridden both?

both are similarly priced with di2 but im leaning towards izalco because it has the better colour scheme.

I’m also in same situation. Tome both bikes look great. The TCR Advanced SL 1 2019 has the bonus power meter.

Two friends have the Izalco Max disc version - both VERY happy.

Also resale may be easier with the focus due to giants integrated seat post.
Didnt bother me when i purchased my propel advanced sl0, as i doubt i will ever sell it, but if i were to, i may have re considered the purchase.
But either bike if they fit you well will be brilliant
