Planning to get a new roadie next year and given Canyon's waiting list I'm forced to make a call sooner rather than later. Anyhow, the 2 forerunners to this point are:
Plus points for the Canyon -
Its 550 quid cheaper than the £2500 focus
Its Lighter (not by much and only because of the wheels)
Its got much better wheels
Plus Points for the Focus -
I can sit on it in a shop
I don't have to wait until mid april to get it
Frame is probably better
Intrest free..not a biggie but not having such a large hole appearing in my finances will be welcome!
One of the big concerns about the izalco is that it looks very 'racy'...I'm no racer, it'll be used for 40-50 mile training rides, plus the odd sportive. Will it be an absolute dog over anything other than super smooth tarmac, and will the ridiculously short head tube ruin me after about 20 miles...?
What do the STW masses think?
