That’s my man!
With that stable of high end carbon, why did you go with the CAAD 12 over another carbon frame?
Chapeau! It’s hard to believe so few ride Scott Foils (newest models). I had a 2016 Scott Foil 10. Best bike I’ve ridden to date. Very sorry I got rid of it.
I would advise against the Mercury M5’s. I have a pair and encouraged two buddies to buy them as well (At under $1000 on CC, we thought they were a steal) but I’m noticing SIGNIFICANT wear on the brake tracks after less than a year’s worth of use. My buddy’s rear rim also blew out and when he sent it in to Mercury for warranty, they said heat damage is not covered. Kinda ridiculous considering they were also under a year old and we have all only used the stock brake pads. They’re also very narrow which make for harsher riding - +1 for going wide and tubeless.
IMO, you’re better off spending $1500-2000 and getting something with a real reputation (Zipps are stronger than the M5’s will ever be, and they have years more experience designing bomb-proof wheels).
That said, the Hunt 50’s look interesting!
Must… have… ahhh! This is on my bucket list
Good looking bike…not sure the mud flaps worked though.

I love this bike
I just built up a new to me single speed. Since i had a Chris king single speed hub on carbon rims i found a used frame and fork that was still qr.
Everything else but the handlebar is new though, xt brakes, new stem, next sl crank, and one up dropper post. Current weight with an old pair of atac aliums is 19.8 lbs. There’s definitely a right penalty having those king hubs.

Just bought this bike second hand only 3 months ago, have done 2 races on it so far and I’m fairly happy with it!
