I currently own a scott foil 20 from 2013 with full 10 speed ultegra. Just wanted to get your opinions on whether I should sell this bike and buy a Caad 10 frame and build it up with ultegra 11 speed. Thanks guys

Caad 10 is great for what it is but no way better than a foil. IMHO it does not worth to get an inferior frame just to add one more cog on your cassette. Keep your money and frame and get a DuraAce next year if you can.
Of course in case you don't like your Foil at all and want to try something new it is up to you.

Upgrading purposes or downgrading?

Well I have both and their ride characteristics are very similar. I wouldn't call a CAAD10 inferior to a Foil HMF frame either. 150grams heavier maybe

I have a Caad 10 a Felt FC and a Cervelo S3 and i would call and Caad 10 an inferior frame, I love the Caad 10 it's probably my favorite all around bike out of the 3 bikes. It's just a matter of taste in my opinion

You haven't stated what you primarily use the bike for?

If races, I'd keep the Foil. CAAD is an excellent bike, but the Foil is lighter and more aero. Upgrade the groupset to 11sp if that is truly what you're looking for.

And if not for races...hard to say "get a CAAD". As that's still a race designed machine.

There is a very high probability this year Scott would come out with a new Foil - more aero (probably), more stiffness & comfort ( :D :D) and all that other marketing addons. Anyway, that one should be better so maybe wait and simply upgrade to the new Foil late this year or early next year.

Can't really afford the new foil so thinking I am going to go down the FM069 sl route. Now I've just gotta sell the thing. Anyone want a foil? Haha

If you are intending to sell it please list in the for sale forum not here.

Thanks!
