SCOTT Foil RC Liquid, the very first road bike build by Dangerholm

Road 01/06/23 16:00 Migue A.


Popular mechanic Dangerholm is well known in mountain biking, but this time he surprises us with his first road creation. A stunning SCOTT Foil RC that he has named Liquid for its unique 'special effects' finish. As always, this bike features the best and lightest components with unique details and combinations made in Dangerholm.

Dangerholm makes its road debut with this exhuberant SCOTT Foil RC Liquid

Dangerholm's SCOTT Foil RC Liquid

"Over the years I’ve been riding pretty much everything, from BMX and trials to downhill and racing marathons, but road for some reason just never happened. At long last I got my hands on the new and rather amazing SCOTT Foil RC frame set last year, so in autumn I built a test mule version. Partly to figure out things like riding position and preferences, but also to get the creative process started and figure out how to hopefully build one of the best performing and best looking bikes possible. A steep task to say the least."

All components have been customized and the choice of setup is as sophisticated as it usually is on Dangerholm bikes.

"So I decided that I would try to take the essence of the Foil to the next level, building an aero bike with elegance and performance turned up to 11. To make it a bike that appears as a whole and not as a selection of parts and components simply put together. The goal was that it would in some ways resemble and bring the feeling of looking at a beautiful super car. Things like having matching body panels, small logos, clean tires with no big brand patches and so on - but a bicycle."

"So after fine tuning the spec list and spending countless hours sanding, painting and polishing - the SCOTT Foil Liquid was born."


This special-effect paint is called Liquid Gold, after which the bike is named, and it changes completely depending on the light. It goes from being completely transparent, allowing you to see the black carbon fiber, to becoming shades of green, gold and in some angles even shades of blue. In low light, the bike becomes much more discreet and bright olive tones.
The Coco Designs Spline saddle, handmade in France on a small scale, has been painted to match the rest of the bike. Weighs only 65g
