It's all there, that's the main thing :) I'd put a 450mm Thomson lay-back seatpost in it myself, stem looks ok (if it's 135mm I would go for a 150 though)...

i think this will be hung up for a while safely whilst i sort out the other bikes and keep an eye out for parts. i've got a marin bear valley that needs sorting and i have a sniff of a marin team bike, but any one wishing to have the scott for swaps i'll consider.
