Focus Cayo 105 or Cayo Team replica

Postby a1value » Mon Jun 15, 2009 13:54 pm

Hello, looking to but a Cayo - so hope you guys (and gals) can help.

Just wanted an opinion over the two bikes. There is a £300.00 difference - so not a great deal, the Team replica being slightly more expensive.

What would people recommend. The differences are mainly the groupset 105 to SRAM rival, half decent saddle and Aksium Wheels compared to Shimano RS10.

Whats the best choice please.....

Thanks

I reckon i'd go for the Cayo 105 then save up and get a decent set of wheels for summer and have the RS10's for winter but then i've never tried sram so can't really make a fair comparison.........

Thanks for the reply. Just wanted to see if I can justify getting the team cayo - there is a £500 discount on it, but cannot see how it can be justified

I always wanted the cayo, but after waiting for its price to drop - its just not happening!
