Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

I have a chance to pick up a foil 40 at dealer cost due to a gouged chainstay on my addict. Pretty nice of Scott but the dealer cost is about the same as the 1 year old sale price. $1900us.
Should I go for it and transfer my dura ace, group + cockpit + wheels over to the foil making the addict a "second" bike?
Is the stiffness really just as good for a 100-200g weight penalty?
Maybe I can sell the 105 group and stock wheels as brand new and use that to purchase SRAM red + some eBay Chinese lightweight wheels to make the addict a climbing rig?

Other options are foil10 for 5500 and foil 20 for 2600.

Honestly if Scott is offering you a replacement then wait for the new Addict coming this autumn.

The damage was my fault due to a loose qr causing the cassette to come out of the dropout.
They aren't offering a replacement, just a discount.
If I don't want the stock wheels and 105 group they are offering 1400.
