Focus are made in Germany and have good reports.
We have a company in the UK who has sold them for a few years now.

Looks like a nice line of Bikes Smile . The 29'er is becoming increasingly popular as choice ride bike. If you get one please do take a couple photos and share them with us here .. http://forums.bikeride.com/forum-36.html .
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

I haven't seen any Focus MTB in this area, but where I ride, there are quite a few Focus road bikes, mostly the higher end carbon ones. Here is their web site if you are interested in their complete line.

Thanks everyone for all your considered input...I'm definitely getting a 29er, its just a case of which one!

I'm testing out the Focus Redskin 3 this weekend to see how it compares to my top choice (Specialized Rockhopper Expert). Similar spec just better brakes on the Rockhopper (so I'm told) although its about 10% more expensive.

So its tried and trusted brand versus new kid on the block I guess!

Thanks everyone but despite the favourable opinions on Focus I opted for the Rockhopper...picking her up soon.

Cheers
