There is a bunch of courses I do on Strava but one in particular is a 20km sprint which I have done many times (say over 30 times) .
I have now done it twice on the Scott to get a decent average and compared with my prior bike (2012 Avanti Giro 3) with no other changes (same conditions ect) I have picked up 3-4 minutes over 20km's )and about 3 to 6km/h on my average speed which has brought me into the top 10 (was sitting about 150 before) which I am very happy with. Still shopping for wheels (the stock R501-30s weigh 2001g!), I think with the right wheels this bike will be a beast.
The handling, stiffness, looks everything is great, very happy!
heres some wheels motivation from a fellow scott foil owner
anyway the point of my reply was that what you said above - was the exact feeling I had when I first got my bike and started to push it and myself for the first month I had it. Well ... I still do though.
Thnx mate, nice wheels btw - reynolds 46 if im not mistaken?
