Hi,
just got my new bike Foil 30, and the weigth was out of the box 7600gr. I'm going to take parts of my old bike (RedBull) and hoping to get it under 7kg! I fell in love to this colour, and that's the reason I settled to little extra weigth in HMF, instead of HMX carbon fork and frame.

The frame with only rd hanger was 1013gr, and the uncut fork was 375gr

1013 for a YELLOW painted size 56 aero(ish) frame is legit!

Ok, after some modifications, this is what I ended up. Wheels are 50mm carbon clinchers from china, with mac aero spokes and Sokin hubs. shifters are Red and force, cranks are Campagnolo Centaur and so on... Total weigth as pictured, with two bottle cages, pedals and garmin 500 is 6930gr. Not bad with cheap carbon clinchers..
Sorry about crappy picture. Weather has been like this for few weeks and there is no ligth available.

I did play little with an extra seatpost. My aim was to make ligth, non setback seatpost for timetrial position, and I believe I did it. I just cut off the setback part and used some parts from my mtb seatpost. Much ligther than original and serves the purpose...

Who signed your generic carbon clinchers?
Also -10 points for photo in the small ring.

Hi.
Is this the original foil seatpost? Is it possible to cut off the Carbon post that way? It looks like an intersting option for me to safe €250,- for a new zero seatpost.

HMF and heavy paint. Any HMX version would be significantly lighter.

Is there difference with the seatpost on HMF and HMX frames? I would be suprised if there is. Does anybody have actual weigth of HMX frame in size L (56)

I'm a big fan of yellow and I would take that bike as it was, as it is and as it will be.

Very pretty :thumbup: :thumbup: :beerchug:

You wrote size M and show a L. Very nice bike!

Can you come up with some measurements? Center of box to top saddle like you have it on the last pic. Tip nose to center of bar. Bar to saddle drop. I am thinking about the same bike, but dont know if I should go L og XL.

My mistake... The frame is L. Saddle high is 770mm, 560mm from nose to the senter of the bar, 120mm bar drop.

Ok, then there is no way it will fit me. I normally have 81,4cm from center box to top of saddle and 65cm from nose to cockpit.

This foil is the second last in the range so it is definitely not the lightest model.
