Greenstreet Custom Build | Focus Izalco Max eTap

Posted on June 25, 2016 by Jared Kennedy

The Focus Izalco Max recently earned Cycling Weekly’s “Disc Brake Road Bike of the Year” award. This nimble ride is the brand’s premier road bike. Being that this model is intended for illustrious events like the Tour de France, turning things up another few notches can be a daunting task—but barring no expense, and taking time to find only the best products available for this build, Greenstreet Cycles has produced a truly one of a kind bike. The Izalco Max Disc Red eTap.

More than three months ago, the customer behind this build came in looking to take a world champion frame to the next level. This individual rides with only with the best gear, often reaching 300 miles per week. Though he now prefers road and gravel rides with friends, his long racing history spans the continent. Both he and the shop staff knew sending him off on a bike stock out of the box was completely out of the question.

The most important finishing touch on a build like this is the way it fits the rider. The incredible potential held within a bike can only be tapped into if the bike is ergonomically fitted to the specific individual riding it. With that philosophy in mind, Greenstreet completed a Specialized Body Geometry Fit on the bike. The bike is of the highest performance level, and because of the Fit the bike is now ergonomically coupled with its rider who is upwards of 45 years old and fully capable accessing his rides’ full potential.
