I already have Colnago EPS 61 traditional geometry during last 2 season.
It's a super bike, but with my 6'2'', is awfully not aero)))
Compare to my previous GIANT TCR Advanced ISP , old , 2007 year model.
Colnago about 1 km/h is slower at same power, course etc.
I don't want to use two bikes for trips on races since it is expensive in transportation in the avia plane.
I sold my Cervelo P3C, it is clear that it isn't comparable with a usual road bike, but Colnago with clip-on aerobar is awfully slow. It with comfort, but is senseless to participation in a TT races. As far as Scott Foil will meet my expectations, it is also possible it it will be slightly easier than Colnago (1250+360 gramm at 61s size).
I hope to hear of real responses of owners of Scott Foil, I consider 58 size.
Or I should continuing to enjoy Colnago, possibly it is my conjectures.
Cervelo was awful for bad pavings road, I couldn't give out on it the maximum power. It was uncomfortable and very rigid, ideal for glass road (not around).
I considered S5, but it is the same pain as it seems to me. If Scott same "a piece of plywood", it not option for me
Sorry for my poor english
I haven't ridden the S5, but from what I hear, it won't be as stiff bit definitely is one of the most comfortable aero road bikes. If it was me though, unless you're set on doing TT's in long distance travel races, I would just stick with the colnago. It sounds like a gorgeous bike, and it would be a shame to have to sell it. Whatever you chose, good luck at the races!
I miss have a Trek madone 7.9. Great bike. Much more comfortable, and handles differently to the foil. Possibly not as well on the front end, but that would be hard to prove.
I can't comment on the cervelo. All tunnel tests suggest that it is more aero than the Scott or the Trek.
Also, consider the 58 rather than the 61 of you can make it work fit-wise.

61 size (not sloping) have 590 mm ETT. The original Colnago seatpost will be replaced to 3T Ltd with zero feedback. It will allow to install saddle optimum ~ 80-90 mm of seatback from BB. It 's large size frameset problem, with 73 degrees of a saddle tube. The saddle appears too behind. I'm look to something is shorter with ETT 580. To buy new Colnago ... it it is expensive. It is strange that they aren't really appreciated in the secondhand market. Maybe because Colnago use oldschool lugged technology. All people look to new modern aero sexy frameset. I continue to use in the winter the youthful steel GIOS TORINO (I am 42 years old), and it isn't much worse present top carbon.
