Focus Paralane - Bike for Sale, asking $2600

Find more about this at Focus-bikes:

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:


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


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.


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.


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