That is not me -- it's actually 26-year-old Czech rider Jan Barta of the 2010 NetApp Team racing in Europe -- but that is my bike: The Focus Cayo 1.0.

I'll be taking off on a 52-centimeter version of this full carbon tomorrow bright and early. Last year, I tested a bamboo bike from Organic Bikes, and I'm curious to see how the carbon will feel differently.

Focus told me: "With a full Shimano Ultegra group, FSA cockpit and DT Swiss wheels, the Cayo is extremely well-spec'd for a full carbon bike in this price range ($3,160).

"The Cayo was the bike of choice for the Jelly Belly and NetApp Professional Cycling Teams in 2010, and was ridden to many national and international victories. It remains a Focus top seller."
