    Scott Foil

    Been seeing pros ride it, as the F01, for a while now. Looks like it has finally officially been launched.

    What a sweet looking frame.

    That's a nice looking bike... I like the flat black

    LBS says initial shipments are going to be very limited. Probably not going to see these sitting around until next season.

    Ultegra equipped version for 15lbs is impossible, may be you've scaled one of the hmx versions?

    The foil is a very nice bike. Scott did a great job with this bike. I do have a 54 for sale. With Sram red and zipp 404's. Email me if interested. Thank you.

    Does anybody now if the Foil frame can handle junior cassette (14-25t)? The Addict couldn't.

    I'm new to the Scott family, but I did my research and decided I could not find another bike with the stiffness, lightness, and aerodynamics of the Foil. I am replacing my Felt AR4 and F3 with the Foil in order to simplify my road situation. It seemed as though I would always want the speed of the AR when I rode the F3 and the lightness of the F3 when I rode the AR. I figured the Foil would allow me to have the advantage of both Felts and then some, so I picked this one up Saturday. It is very fast and stiff, yet feels more stable than the AR. Components are Full Sram Red, Ritchey WCS Carbon cockpit, and Specialized Toupe saddle. I am currently demoing a set of 303 Firecrest clinchers to see if they will be a good replacement for my Easton EA90SLX and old ZIpp 404s. Oh yeah........it weighs 14.12 with pedals and heavy Zipp tires!

    Nice!! Looks awesome. I'd really like to test ride one but looks like no one in my area will have any 61s in stock until April. Have fun.

    I just rode my new Foil Team over the weekend . My impression of the ride overall is fantastic. I was worried that the ride might be to harsh although it was firm it did not beat me up. The bike is fast and climbs great and sprints great. I am very happy I took a leap of faith with this bike. Because on paper it looked perfect light,stiff,geometry was good. I am very happy.

    HMX is stronger and lighter carbon. i think I read where its 20% stiffer in certain areas.

    I can vouch for the stiffness . My addict was HMX carbon. Not very comfortable but, one of the fastest and best climbing bikes I've ever owned.

    I brought a Foil 15 a month ago, big upgrade from a 2009 Giant advanced. Great bike, handles better and feels much nicer to ride. I even managed to get a equal 1st place on Strava for a down hill section on a local ride.

    My only gripe is trying to buy a set back seat post, so if anyone knows where I can buy a set back seat post to suit a Scott Foil, please let me know. I've contacted my local bike shop who doesn't really care, not happy and the Ritchey web site doesn't show the aero seat post.

    Scott only makes two seat posts for the Foil.

    Sizes 54 and smaller use a 0 degree post, 56 and larger use a laid back post (25mm I believe). So if you have a 54, you can get a laid back post from Scott...if you have a 56 with the laid back post, there isn't much you can do about it.

    Basically talk to your dealer and see what they can do.

    I know if you have the 0 degree post you Scott will send you a laid back post (or vise-versa) if you need one for best fit.

    Our Scott book at the shop shows 100 grams difference between the HMX and HMF carbon.
    That's frame and fork. 50 grams for the fork and 50 grams for the frame.
