Withdrawn - Scott Foil Premium (I'm keeping it!)

edited 3 October in Second hand road bikes
Scott Foil Premium 2016 in very good used condition. I purchased this as an as new frame module (frame, bars, seatpost) from a Scott employee in May 2017.

This is a pro level bike as ridden by the Orica / Mitchelton Scott UCI World Tour team and the first aero bike to win Paris-Roubaix (Matt Hayman, 2016). Not to be confused with the HMF Scott Foil frames which are a lower level of carbon.

Full spec as follows –
Frame – Scott Aerodynamic Science HMX Carbon, size 52s (see attached geometry chart).
Handlebars – Syncros RR1.0 Carbon SL Bar/Stem Combo (c to c - 400mm wide at hoods, 42mm at drops, 100mm stem length. Complete with Syncros out front mount, currently set up for Wahoo head unit.
Seatpost – Syncros Carbon Aero RR 1.0.
Saddle – Syncros Belcarra (brand new – removed from a new bike).
Groupset – Shimano Dura Ace R9100 mechanical - Please note crankset (172.5mm with 52/36 rings) is brand new, having been removed from a new bike.
Cassette is Shimano Ultegra R8000 (11-30) and chain is KMC X11SL. Rear mech has an oversized pulley wheel with ceramic bearings.
Wheelset – Roval Rapide CL50. 50mm, full carbon and tubeless ready. These are superb wheels, modern cross section rims and 29mm wide – very stable in crosswinds. Internals are DT Swiss. Wheels are less than one year old and have covered no more than 1200km (this was my summer best bike and I have several wheelsets). Brake shoes are Roval carbon approved Swiss stop Black Prince which came with the wheels. Skewers are Wheelsmith titanium (very light weight).
Tyres – Vittoria Corsa Graphene 2.0 25mm standard clinchers.

There are some very minor light scuffs and scratches around the frame as one would expect with a used frame but nothing noteworthy. I did manage to chip a piece off of the rear non drive side carbon drop out but this was repaired by a carbon specialist and has been no problem since. The rear mech also has a bit of scuffing but purely cosmetic and not noticeable unless looking for it (see photos).

Only selling as I have a new disc brake bike. May spilt depending on offers for complete bike, or specific parts.

Located in Angus, Scotland.
Collection only – would prefer buyer to view bike and don’t want to courier due to value.

£3750, open to offers.

Thanks for looking.

    Proper superbike - why are you getting rid of?

    I have a 2018 RC, one rung down from this in the range, and can only echo what an amazing frame and bike this is - super comfy, and so fast and sure footed, though still exciting - some magic ingredients in there I think!

    Thanks Dan. Yes it's an awesome bike but if I'm honest it's always been just slightly short in the reach dept for me, hence I've just bought an Addict RC in a 54 which is similar geometry but a longer top tube.
    I've not actually used the Foil much this year, as I tended to favour my 54cm Emonda for the same reason. I suppose I could keep it for winter or zwift duties but its a hell of a lot of bike for that!
    Your comments make me want to keep it however....
    Cheers

    I really miss my Foil and it's the right size... but I'm not in the market :'(

    Good luck with the sale, they're brilliant bikes.

    Cheers. I remember your Foil, as I nearly bought it as a second one!

    Look a lovely bike. Do you know the weight of it? Thanks

    @applebiker1 weight will be very close to 7kg to the best of my knowledge.

    @bianchi_dave - please don't keep it as a turbo bike, they deserve to be ridden in the great outdoors!

    Having a look at current Addict and Foil geometries, I thought they were very similar, iirc the Addict might be 5mm longer top tube like for like?

    I'm planning on getting an 2022 Addict RC if any ever actually appear as stock anywhere, and I know these come with seperate bars and stem - the idea is to ride with it for a year or so, and then buy some creston ic sl bars but I'll likely take that opportunity to reduce the reach by 10mm, and perhaps go for narrower bars as well.

    I keep having a crazy idea of seeking out a Foil disc for winter duties, but I think that ship sailed 2 years ago perhaps, when the Foil 20 (or 30?) disc was at one point on offer brand new for less than 2k - the equivalent now is at least twice the price, plus I think mounting mudguards would be a nightmare.

    My new Addict RC (54cm) is 7.1 kg with pedals. the Roval Rapide CLX wheels certainly help, as they only weigh 1400g which is great for wheels that deep (51/62). I'm planning to switch the bars and stem out for the Creston IC SL as soon as I can get my hands on some (pardon pun). The two piece system is very heavy and the switch should take the bike to 6.8kg, or a smidge over. Finding the size I want in stock is a real (1st world) problem just now though (like all bike parts!).

    Mudguards would be a problem on a Foil, as there's not a huge amount of clearance between front wheel and down tube, but a 28mm tyre fits easily. On the rear, a Crud road racer guard would fit, but it would need to be cut so it finished just above the seat stay bridge - would be enough to keep your censored dry though!

    @bianchi_dave if you are on facebook, would be worth posting on this page I suspect: https://www.facebook.com/groups/818863784815005

  • Despite a fair bit of interest I still have this, although its not been advertised for a while. Back on the bay of e, and price reduced to £2950. Open to offers on complete bike, or parts.
    This bike deserves to be ridden, if I keep the frame it will just be used for zwifting come winter!

    I'd put it on Facebook marketplace if I were you - though maybe your location might mean you have less people in near proximity to you unless you are willing to have a change of heart on the courier?

    I recently sold my 2016 Synapse for £1950 with pedals - it was mint in every way.
    That originally cost £3250.

    The spec of your bike with those wheels new would have been something like 6.5k I reckon, so your asking price seems reasonable to me, in the current market anyway.

    Noticed that in your road buying advice thread. They're great bikes too, once you put nice wheels on of course ;)
