Focus Paralane - Bike for Sale, asking $2600


Find more about this at Focus-bikes:  https://www.focus-bikes.com/int/185837-paralane-8-9.

Listed here at DC Craigslist:

If you are interested, reach out in the comments or reply to that Craigslist post.  I can ship using Bikeflights and we will split the shipping cost (i.e., I will charge you up front and refund half).  Current shipping charge looks like about $115 to get to Seattle from the mid-Atlantic, so this should not be a huge issue.  Advance payment by PayPal will work for the bike (and if necessary shipping).


More on the bike:

Original price $3800 bike, light in-town commuting use, needs to make room for a different bike.

All-road geometry and tire clearance (up to 38mm depending on the make), ultra comfortable all-day design that remains quick and competitive in the peloton. Category-leading Shimano Ultegra 8000 hydraulic disc group, 2 x 11 with 50-34 cranks and 11-34 cassette. Mavic Aksium wheels, BBB bars, stem, and carbon seatpost. Fizik Antares saddle. Design-award winning Focus R.A.T. through-axles (12x100 and 12x142). Mudguards designed for bike with integrated mounts included.

58cm frame is for 5'11-6'3. Check out the reviews online - this was a testers hands-down favorite for an all road/trail bike in recent years. Focus bikes are no longer distributed stateside so this is a rare opportunity.

(Note that existing build deviates from the specs on the Focus website as follows: Panaracer Gravelking SK 32mm tires, Fizik Antares saddle, Mavic Aksium wheels, 160mm brake rotors front and rear.)

From Focus Bikes:

REDUCED FATIGUE THANKS TO INCREASED COMFORT

The endurance geometry, which has been designed for long rides, and the comfort-enhancing frame design (C.I.A.) guarantee longer-lasting riding fun.

GREATER TYRE CLEARANCE FOR MORE FREEDOM

The maximum tyre clearance of up to 35 mm makes it possible for you to mount wider tyres and those with a tread pattern with knobs. Therefore you can ride on all paths, regardless of whether they are tarmac roads or gravel tracks.

EASY-TO-INSTALL FENDERS INCLUDED

Thanks to our sophisticated detailed solutions, you can mount matching fenders quickly and easily to the frame. The best thing is that high-quality Curana fenders are included with every PARALANE.

Summary:

This is a serious performance road, gravel, and trail bike that can ride literally anywhere.
