^Interesting, I got a 2013 about 5 months ago, Foil 15 54cm, it weighed 1014g, with chain catcher installed. 60g heavier, maybe 10g for the catcher at most...so still 30-45h heavier than your frame.

The team frame weighed 916g with chaincatcher/RD hangar. 56cm

The BB cups are in place but nothing else. Looking forward to building it just need to find a guide for assembling the headset & fork?

Think you saw the other thread.

There is no race crown. Just grease the bearing, put in on the fork.

Then the bearing/split ring on the top, dust cover...that is all. Really straight forward headset assembly.

Here's mine, it's XS. The frame pictured cracked, like many others people's, near the seatpost clamp. I got another one from Scott quite easily though.

Does Foil (Team Issue 2013) accept a 25mm tubular tire regarding frame clearance ? I just purchased a Foil frameset and a Bontrager Aeolus 3 wheelset (27mm wide), would like to fit a 25mm wide tubular tire but want to be sure before buying them...

Short answer ; Yes.

Long answer ; It sure does fit ... I ride 25mm Vittoria Evo tubular tires on my Foil.

Short question for Foil (or maybe other models) owners, the frame come with a zone when it suppose the support bolt of
the front derailleur touches the frame.
Shimano front derailleur kit come with a backup plate that should be installed (bonded) to prevent frame damage.
My mechanic said that this backup plate isn't necessary on Foil frame because it already has this zone reinforced.
Did you put this plate on the frame or indeed isn't necessary ?
The frame's zone can be seen in this pic:

^I run Di2, and they recommend highly putting the plate on a frame. I did on my Foil. No issues, and doesn't hurt to put it there, even on the Di2 specific frames.

I also see NO reason to NOT put it on the bike? Mechanics say all sorts of things, maybe it does have support, maybe not. But Shimano designed that plate to just adhere to where you need it, and provide protection to the paint/frame, so just use it.

Also, if you notice, that set screw for the FD, it pretty small, and I personally didn't want it pushing up against my frame, like a sharp pin almost screwing/turning it to push the FD outward and get it set correctly.

You never know the thing is even there once installed, forgot about it almost until you posted that question.

It's sort of chain catcher I think) If you plan use such one as sram red has, you can easy remove that "plate")

Thanks, the only reason was that it was already installed and fine tuned but this morning the first thing I did was to remove the FD and attach the plate on the frame :)!
