Scott Foil 10

Finally got round to taking some pictures of my new bike. I've had it about 2 weeks now, and I after a few teething problems (the idiot who built it up initially didn't press the bb properly or use any carbon paste on the seatpost), it's not running beautifully. It's phenomenally stiff, but I like the feeling that all my effort is going into forward motion, and I'm pretty young, so I'll take speed over comfort while I can.

Frame: Scott Foil 10 2012

Front & Rear Mech: SRAM Rival
Brakes: SRAM Apex
Chainset: SRAM S350
Wheels: Gigantex 50mm Clincher / Vittoria Open Corsa Evo
Stem & Bars: 3T Team
Saddle: Specialized Romin

I've tried to build the bike up on a bit of a budget, hence the mixed group set. But I plan on upgrading it slowly over the next couple of years. I think a new crankset will be first on the shopping list, as the current one lets down the rest of the bike a bit in my opinion.

    I'd go brakes if I were you first. I had those SRAM Apexs, and while they're okay, I had a couple of 'why am I not stopping moments?' at speed. Got Dura Ace on mine now, which are miles better.
  • Really nice looking bike.
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
