Fuji aloha 1.0

Hi all.

I'm looking at the fuji aloha 1.0 and want some real opinions before parting with my cash.

For the price it looks like a great TT bike that's to good to be true.

Do you have one and are you fast. HELP.

    Review from 220 Triathlon
    The German brand Focus has made a massive impact in the UK over the past couple of years, by producing an extensive range of bikes that often simply blow the opposition away. And Focus bikes don't just look the part, they're the real deal, with countless test wins to their credit - last September, Hanka Kupfernagel rode one to victory in the women's World Championships time trial. The brand new Tria offers a ride quality way above its asking price.
    Flick up to speed through the superb SRAM Rival gearing and the Focus bowls along energetically. The aero-section down tube, seat tube and post keeping things efficient...It also climbs well, taking shallow gradients without breaking step and toughing it out on the steep stuff. The frankly humongous 28-tooth sprocket will winch you up the north face of the Eiger...Down the other side, and even through tight turns, steering accuracy is bang on, so you're never left nervously scrubbing off speed when you should be turning on the power.

    Focus cram a whole lot of value into the Izalco, and this is where it really scores.

    Ready to rock straight from the box, this really is a steal

    In conclusion...
    Our (grouptest: Orbea Aletta, Trek Equinox, Fuji Aloha) winner though is the Focus Izalco Tria which is a stunning buy. To put it in perspective, if you bought those SRAM bar end shifters separately, they'd cost you £140 and the mechs another £100. How they're managing to do it at this price is a mystery. Not that we're saying this bike is just about spangly components. Far from it, the Izalco is aero, lightweight and comfortable enough for you to perform at your best on even the longest bike leg. We had a blast aboard this bike...this is a superb package that's ready to race...fast!
