Bike Focus

Audax 725 

With the overwhelming views on the Frame Focus earlier  we decided to show the stock bikes as well. 

The Bike we have here is the Audax model finished in Royal blue enamel with barbers pole and head tube in pink. The transfers are white gothic.  This one has Reynolds 725 tubing with all the brazing you would need for a nice day ride. The size is 60cm c-t with a 565mm top tube. 
Long guards to protect you and the bike during inclement weather. Black cork handle bar tape and a Brooks Cambium C15 saddle adds to the comfort. The groupset is the Shimano Ultegra which has the 53-39 chainset and combined with a 12-25 cassette give you a wide range of gears . Deda handle bars /stem and seat pin finish the bike nicely. Mavic open pro rims shod with Continental gator skin 23mm tyres.
