Focus Cayo carbon road
racing bike, size medium/54cm, with full internal cable routing.
I bought this bike
‘virtually brand new’ around four years ago for my then 12-year-old son to race
on. He used it for two seasons, his brother used it for two seasons, now it’s
too small (he’s nearly 6ft).
As it was for racing,
I swapped over a lot of the components as soon as we got the bike. I’ve shown the the bike built up ‘as raced’ in the final picture. To sell, I’ve returned the original components to the bike. The set up now is:Shimano 105 10-speed
shifters and derailleurs. Focus Concept Cex
brakes, stem, bars. Focus seat post. FSA cranks. Mavic Aksium wheelset. KMC gold chain.
Please note the bike
doesn’t come with saddle, bar tape or pedals (although I have flat plastic ones if you need them). It’s also fitted with a 48-tooth
front chainring to comply with youth racing gears, but I’ll include the
50-tooth chainring it came fitted with.Although the bike was
being ridden normally as recently as last week, there are a few things I need
to point out as I want to be totally honest about the condition.
Repair to right seat stay
This was carried out
about three years ago. Another (much smaller) child rode into the back of my son
during a training session and his handlebars went into the right seat stay. It
was repaired by the Carbon Wizard in Exmouth. We chose not to have the repair painted,
but instead covered it in black vinyl wrap – which was virtually unnoticeable
against the black paintwork. I only uncovered the repair to photograph for this
Crack in the left seat stayI didn’t know this was
there until last week. Not long after we bought the bike, it fell over in the
garden, chipping off a tiny piece of clear coat and paintwork. I immediately
covered this with small piece of black electrical tape and thought nothing more
of it. When I removed the tape to take pictures, another piece of paint came
away exposing the crack. I don’t know how long the crack has been there. I’ve
shown it as clearly as I can in the pictures. I’d estimate it goes a quarter to
a third of the way around the tube. I’d imagine it just requires patching, but
I’m no carbon expert.
Various chipsAs with any used bike, there are a couple of
places where the clearcoat has chipped or lifted. I’ve tried to show these in
the pictures. There’s also rubbing and scratching on the cranks and rear mech,
but nothing out of the ordinary.
The wheels have sat
unused in the shed for a number of years so the tyres are beginning to crack in
places. I’d advise changing these.
This has been a really great bike, and I’ve been as honest and detailed as I can in the description and the pictures.
If you have any questions, just ask. I’d far prefer collection in person from Ottery St Mary in Devon as I don’t have any way to get a bike box, and I’d prefer you to see what you’re buying.
Relisted due to waste-of-time buyer. Please don’t bid/offer unless you can actually get to Devon.
