    Hopefully this helps. They did a shootout of the major aero bikes. Foil beat the Venge hardcore.

    Like the color of the venge.

    Seatpost slipping

    Yep, same problem. go buy some carbon paste and apply it to the seatpost.
    Should fix it.
    Underpromise.......... Overdeliver

    Wow, that Venge and Foil side by side shot is sexy! I would love to have either one! I'm torn right now between a Foil and BMC SLR01.

    Carbon paste as mentioned by someone else. That is what Scott tech says to use. No slipping then. And torque close to specs.

    Also, tech said with high torque near spec on that clamp setup, there could be "cosmetic" cracking of the top coat....yeah right.

    Carbon paste and some other methods will secure it though.

    Let us know what happens.

    2.5watts less than the venge and stiffer, wouldn't call that hardcore.

    But they liked the actual real world ride of it over others. Overall it is a great bike.

    Why is that? Why the Foil is the best?

    It is just opinion that came to that conclusion because people have different preferences.

    It did have the stiffest bottom bracket in one test.

    The Foil is about as aero as any road frame out today and lightweight.

    Is it going to perform miracles for you? No, but overall it is a fantastic frameset.

    Comes down the person pedaling the bike though, and your preference.

    Anybody able to get another seatpost, specifically zero-offset, through their dealer for the Foil?

    I got a Team edition on the way, but it has about a 40mm offset. I will likely need a zero offset. I heard awhile back there were shortages of the zero offset and not available??

    Thanks


    EDIT; Answer my own question, have to go through the Scott Dealer. Mine happens to have some in stock, black with grey stripe down the back is all they can get apparently. $179. Not bad.

    I just bought a Foil 20 and I'm 220lbs and have about 500 miles on it with flats,climbs and sprints and I have not noticed any flex. I did upgrade the wheels to Mavic Cosmic Carbone sl. Hope this helps

    I sold my Foil 30 and snatched a Foil 15. Scott was offering us insane close out prices on it, couldn't pass it up.

    This is my 3rd Foil, I've had the Foil 40, Foil 30 and now Foil 15. I really enjoy the frame. However the Di2 is superb, perfect shift everytime and extremely smooth shifting. The hoods I find more comfortable than any sram or shimano I've used to date, well maybe the 2012 Sram Red comes close.

    Very nice! i almost went with the 15 instead of the 20, but i wanted to upgrade the hell out of the bike i bought so it just made more sense price wise to buy the 20.

    Yea retail on the Foil 15 is roughly $5000. $3000 is hell of a deal, even $3500. We're blowing them out left and right at $3800.00

    I think we've sold probably 6 in 2 weeks. I'm also Di2 certified and seems to make the decision easier for the customers when they know they have someone who knows what they're doing.
