The Most Euro Bike at BG× 14.05.2013 By The DoogI have travelled through Europe on a number of occasions. From Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany to name a few, I am always paying careful attention to bikes I see.In all those trips, how many pairs of lightweight carbon clinchers have I seen? Barely any! How many carbon bikes? I’d say less than 20. How many bikes less than 1 year old? About 2.And that includes the bikes in shops!As much as we have a tendency to drone on about Euro this and Euro that, the fact is that most Europeans don’t ride expensive high-end road bikes. Real Euros are on flat bar town bikes with mud guards, dynamo lights and those weird key lock that clamp the rear wheel.I have seen about 25,000 of those!I spotted the ‘trekking’ section of the Focus Bikes website a few months ago and was instantly intrigued. The Focus Wasgos come with racks and mud guards and there are two gearing options: a 27 speed Deore groupset, or an 8 hub gear. But best of all, they come with a super cool internally wired dynamo hub which powers the front and rear lights and sell for only $999.Unfortunately it is not the sort bike we would usually stock at BG, so I needed a good excuse to get one in.Thank you father in law!Two Wasgos arrived at the shop to a fairly harsh welcome!But after a few hours, the tone had changed.These are probably the most utilitarian and EURO bikes you will ever find in BG. And as of 5:20pm on 10/4/2013, they come with the Brown’s seal of approval!
