    Summary

    Expirience with the Focus Raven 8.7

    Focus Raven 8.7 Review The Raven 8.7 is a very classic race hardtail, with a distinctive design. At 142 mm, the installation dimension of the rear wheel is no longer up to date. The geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Focus Hardtail wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. Anyway: the Fox fork is a guarantee for riding pleasure in this price range. With 6 years warranty, you can not go wrong. Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs big.
