This build doesn't have any benefits.... The Foil is just one of the best looking bikes I saw the last few years. And the fact is just that I ride two bikes. The Scott Addict for training / work and the rainy days, and the Foil for the beautiful rides - climbing - or club rides. This year I rode a Batavus Vacansoleil team bike for training and to ride to work with. BATAVUS. Now my son is growing bigger , and he loves his Batavus - so he will be riding my old 52cm Batavus after summer or next spring, and the 49cm Batavus frame will be sold.
Yesterday the last parts came in so photo's will be placed later this day ....
[All I ask is that you don't rub it in the Addict owners' faces if the Foil is that much better, please...]
UPDATE: The ride quality is great as far as I can tell from first impression. It feels stiff - more than the Addict and maybe it's because of the weight ( + 400grms than the Addict ) but is not as " jumpy " as the Addict.
* Stiffer than the Addict , did some descending at +75km/h
* Bit heavier than the Addict
* More comfortable than the Addict
But still my son was faster than me : -30 years & minus 20kg
