Focus Whistler (2011) - A value bike for beginners

This bike belongs to my friend who recently wanted to take up cycling as exercise. This bike cost close to RM2,000.


The bike comes with a mix of Shimano Alivio and Suntour components. It also comes with Tektro Draco hydraulic disk brake which is quite common for bikes priced around the RM2,000 range.

The suspension fork is Suntour XCT, but it has the Focus brand is more visible. This fork is also very common to come with bikes priced at this range. The performance is good but is not suitable for free ride and downhill.

Overall, this bike is good for beginners cyclist who don't want to spend too much on their first bike.
