Thus far, Gustav Gullholm (aka Dangerhom) has focused on creating some of the sleekest, cleanest, and lightest mountain bike builds in the world, with a gravel bike thrown in for variety. Now, he’s created his first road bike, using sponsor Scott’s Foil RC as the platform.

The build started, as all his builds do, by removing all of the stock paint and coatings, bringing the frame down to bare carbon. That included the carbon saddle and SRAM brake levers, seatpost, handlebar/stem, and Bike Ahead 6-spoke wheels.

Everything was then clearcoated with a “Liquid Gold” finish that changes from a shimmering racing green to gold depending on the angle of light.

All in (for the frame, anyway), that coating added just 38g, roughly half or less of what the original finish weighed. That helped bring the complete bike weight down to just 7.11kg.

A full spec list is below, but highlights include a prototype titanium crankset with 1x chainring paired to a modified and chromed SRAM Red AXS derailleur with wide range 10-36 or XPLR 10-44 cassettes, depending on the day.

The Foil RC’s aero seatpost has a built-in taillight, keeping things aero and you safe. Check out all the tech details on the latest Scott Foil here.

Cool but needs rim brakes. Discs are too distracting on an elegant bike like this.

The colour’s great, however if You paint almost every part of the bike with it, it looks like someone fished it out from the sewers.

I think we’re just used to seeing bikes with logos plastered all over them. If you think about it logos are an awful compromise with the premise in theory of lowering cost of bike by providing free advertising. Could you imagine imagine if Michaleangelo painted logos of the building constructors and suppliers on the roof of the Sistine chapel?

Looks like they had some issues with the carbon layup at the non-drive side Seatpost, most likely from the compression bag in that area.
