    Scott Foil Frame

    Hello I have a chance of picking up a new 2012 foil frame for a nice price. However I believe it's di2 and I want to run Sram force 22. I have read that these frames are either electronic or mechanical not and\or. Can anyone verify if this this the case? Thank you

    Yes, for the 2013 frames at least there are different mechanical and Di2 versions - I assume that the 2012 ones are the same. You would need to cut a big hole underneath the BB for the cable guide and also get hold of the plastic cable guide and mechanical cable stop inserts (which are available as a kit I believe). If you can find a professional willing to modify the frame (or are very confident yourself) it could be an option however.

    Scott Foil Premium and Foil 15 are Di2 specific.

    All others are mechanic.

    If the Foil frame is intended for Di2 cable routing, you can't run mechanical groups other way than odd adaptations.

    I have bought Scott Foil Premium 2013 frameset and I have just learned that I can not use it with mechanical shifting. I can not afford electronic shifting. What modifications should I do to the frame?

    You should carefully wrap it up and stick it in the corner.

    It'll wait right there for you while you're at work earning the cash for electronic.
    use a torque wrench

    Or you could just buy this:

    Scott Foil Cable Guide Kit - Scott from Westbrook Cycles UK

    and then cut a big rectangular hole in the bottom of the BB to accept the bit on the right. There should be a little leeway for error - the hole needs to be big enough for the cable guide to go in but small enough to support the lip at the bottom.

    Dremel?*

    (*bla bla, accepts no responsibility etc, bla bla, etc...)
