I own the Scott foil 20 2017 and I face a lot of rubbing on backwheel.
What's your wheel and tire setup?
I have the campagnolo Bora One 50 2019 with continental grand prix 5000 25mm clincher. The wheel is rubbing on the brake pads.

That doesn't sound like a frame issue... did you try low profile brake pads?

Waiting for more details,
-actual frame, fork, seatpost, stem weight
-detail on spacers and cable routing. Where does cable go from headtube area into the fork.
-If their stem is not used. How tall is the adapter spacer that accept cables from the bar.
-overall quality, stiffness, compliance, handling etc.

I'm interested as well. I've been on a '17 Fuji Gran Fondo due while I've been rehabbing from an injury. I was really surprised how stiff the bottom bracket is. The bottom bracket is stiffer and the bike more comfortable than the Seven Axiom I was riding.

Have used Fuji Frames for a couple years now & have nothing but good things to say about their quality
& as you note weight :wink:

Does anyone know where the C15 carbon frames are made?

Curious about real world differences between C10 and C15 carbon layups. I´d consider the rim brake frameset, but there´s ,,only´´ lower grade layup offered.

Taken from a review of the Fuji Supreme:
"Employing its best-yet ultra-high modulus carbon layup, called C15, the frame combines three — rather than C10’s two as seen on the ‘2 series’ — levels of composite material for greater compliance and stiffness. This is particularly noticeable on the head tube where it contributes to responsive handling, and the bottom-bracket area, giving optimum power output."

FWIW, c10 used to be the top level. My 2018 Transonic 2.3 was c5, and it was 7.6kg with only a few changes (56cm w/pedals & cages). The old 1.x series was c10 and it was lighter and stiffer than the 2.x series. Now the new ones have jumped a level, so I would expect the weight/stiffness of the 2.x to be similar to the old 1.x, and the new 1.x to be even better. :thumbup:

No really I'm tired of this noise and bike so I just order the new Fuji.
