The bike won Paris Roubaix... It's hard to argue against that. Matt Hayman was riding 28 tubs, so it obviously has enough tire clearance to accommodate a wider tire which would solve a lot of comfort issues. I know two Tri coaches who have Foils and love them. The only criticism I have of the bike is the BB mounted rear brake...real pain to live with day-to-day.

Everything it's ok then.

Those wheelsets are very similar in height. Why no f6r?

Congrats! Do you feel enough stiffness at the rear?

Looking forward to the disc version of the Foil. Its one of the potential candidate for my next bike. But it will be difficult to beat the Aeroad face to face when it comes to price and overall package..

Yep, but the geometry of both bikes is not the same. Aeroad has a lot shorter headtube, so, lower stack. The Canyon cockpit with something like -10° angle only adds to the already agressive riding position.

Did you have any issues with installing the power2max and the built in chain catcher, or any clearance issues at all. I've been told that they're know to exist, I wanted to ask someone running it.

That rear brake bums me out. Not even the brake so much as the quick release on the cable in front of the headtube. Weird that they didn't come up with a sleeker solution since this brake is al.ost exclusively used on aero bikes.

I wasn't precise enough ;) : Bottom bracket height is low ( not even one word about bb drop ! ) Overall bike feels "low" and measurements shows clearly ( 2 bikes side to side ) it is noticeably lower than Ridley Helium SL.

You were precise enough, you were just wrong. If both bikes have got 700c wheels and the same size tyres then BB drop directly correlates to BB height. How could it not?

And as mentioned, the Foil BB is ever so slightly on the high side, compared to pretty much anything that isn't a Ridley. A mm or so higher than a Cervelo, a Madone, a Venge, a Supersix Evo, 2mm higher than the SLR01 the OP had been riding, loads higher than an Argon18 and finally, higher than that paragon of bicycle geometry the Colnago C60 Traditional.

No no any issues about clearance with chain catcher or arm with rear brake...

I will upload photos with that.
My only personal issue is about saddle, uncomfortable as hell....
I am thinking about prologo scratch 2

I'm pretty happy with mine. With wrong wheels, no chain, no crankset it was exactly 6,02kg.
