    You'll get more money if you "part-out" the kids" I hawked an old rolex that barley worked to get my CR1.

    I picked up a Foil 30 last week (had to order; last 52 that Scott had). Its my first road bike and I haven't gotten a lot of time in on it yet but I love it!

    I will give some more reviews after I get some solid seat time in.

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!
    Hey, another guy with his stem flipped up. At least I'm not the only one. Went from a CR1 to an Addict and either I have to adapt to a lower cockpit or the stem stays up.

    My current dream bike is a Foil Premium. But, would gladly take the Team frame and just swap all my Red components over to it, Ritchey cockpit and my 303 FCs...would be a sweet ride!!!

    New Foil owner here...got the Foil 40 in white as the local shops do not have the Foil 20 in my size XS. Upgraded the components to the same specs as the 20, Ultegra groupset and Mavic cosmic wheels..pretty decent looking if I say so myself.

    My overall feeling is that the bike is fast and stiff. Was riding a Scott speedster S40 so can definitely feel huge improvement in pedaling efficiency and power transfer. Not as comfy as the CR1 I admit, as a matter of fact was aching the first few rides due to being beaten up by the harsh ride. Changing to 700c x 25 tires have helped a lot though. A lot more plush now although the tires seem to have added a bit more rolling resistance.

    Great bike overall, no regrets with the purchase.

    Oh man thats a very hard choice. Both are such amazing bikes. We sell Scott and Focus at the shop I work at. I already had a Foil but we recently picked up Focus. I was gonna go with the Izalco Pro 3.0 because the price/part package was perfect. However I was soo happy with my Foil that I decided to get another Foil. Both bikes are light, stiff, however the aerodynamics of the Foil in my opinion edges a little bit over the Izalco.

    My only advice is test ride them

    I love my FOIL. although I have done some upgrades on it like the EC90SL Wheels & Bars and a FSA Carbon Stem. The only 2 complains i had was the Stock Seat and the set back post that a 56cm bike comes with, I have a Zero offset post coming soon($190 later).

    The Ultegra Group is Solid, the bike is super stiff & of course, PIMP looking.

    I was between the FOIL & a Tarmac SL4 but wanted the VENGE.. The Big-S missed the mark by not making their AERO Bike affordable to the comon folk.


    Anyhow, if you go with the FOIL 20, you will love it.

    BTW, any FOIL owner out there with a Smaller than a 56cm Frame, i will have my setback post available for sale soon.

    Benefits of working at a bike shop. Get to use the demo Zipp's whenever I want or when not in use.
